Swiss made fake Omega used a very unfortunate name for this Speedmaster 3594.50 but did so with all the best intentions. It was Omega’s first attempt at creating a re-edition of the first Speedmaster CK2915, and the watch debuted as the cheap replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 Replica. Apparently, the folks at Omega were unaware of the negative connotation that this term has for watch collectors and enthusiasts. Even just recently, one of our readers and fellow 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster enthusiasts had his IG account blocked by Instagram because he referred to the watch as the Speedmaster Replica (pro tip: don’t do that).
Introduction of the Omega Speedmaster ’57 Replica
Naming aside, AAA quality fake Omega introduced the Speedmaster ’57 in 1997 as part of the 50 Mission Cases. Each case contained 23 Omega Speedmaster watches, a container with the then-new 1861 movement, and a loupe. Twenty-two Omega Speedmasters replica for sale were so-called “mission patch” models. Each had a patch design from a space mission in the sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
The 23rd Speedmaster (or first Speedmaster, depending on how you look at it) was the new high quality replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 Replica 3598.50. That’s correct, the reference number was slightly different from the regular production model in 1998. Forty of the Mission Cases were offered on the market, and the top copy watches were individually numbered xx/40. Omega also did two more batches of five Mission Cases. These had a slightly different lid design and were numbered x/5. One of these batches carried the “hors commerce” (non-commercial) label while the other batch was the “épreuves d’artistes” (artists’ proof). One of these cases now resides at the NASA visitor center in Houston, Texas.
The Speedmaster ’57 3594.50 becomes a regular model in the collection
In 1998, best quality replica Omega UK introduced separate editions of the Speedmaster Professional mission patch models from the Mission Case. Between 100 and 150 pieces of each model were available separately, and each came in a white fabric “Missions” box. Omega super clone for sale made two exceptions to this. One was for the Speedmaster Professional Apollo XIII. This model had already seen a release in 1995 as a limited edition of 999 pieces (with the old ref. 1479 bracelet). The other exception was for the top copy Omega Speedmaster ’57 Replica. This model received reference number 3594.50 (and 3894.50 for the version on the tan leather strap) and existed as a regular production model until 2003. Although still available in the years after, production had ceased, and the watch disappeared from the Swiss movement replica Omega catalogs after 2003.
The yellow gold 150th-anniversary edition
Aside from the steel version from 1998, top quality fake Omega also introduced 150 pieces of the Speedmaster ’57 in yellow gold. These commemorated the 150th anniversary of the brand that same year (1848–1998). There are a few interesting facts about this gold edition as well. It was available with a gold bracelet (ref. 1479), and it had the then-new caliber 1863 (a luxury-finished version of the 1861) despite not having a sapphire case back. Furthermore, it was worn (and perhaps still is) by Dire Straits lead singer Mark Knopfler. The high end replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 150th-anniversary edition had reference number 3193.50 for the version on the gold bracelet. Meanwhile, the version with a leather strap and gold folding clasp carried reference number 3693.50. You can find more information about gold Omega Speedmasters replica online uk here.
