It only makes sense to start this list with the UK replica watches we all love so much at Ukomegas.co.uk. Those of us that have a healthy obsession with the best fake Omega Speedmaster have seen the rapid increase in prices of some of the vintage references. The cheap copy Omega Speedmasters powered by Omega’s workhorse caliber 321, especially the straight-lug references, have shot up in price. And even the UK replica Omega 145.012 has become more expensive quite quickly, with prices starting at roughly €9K and even beyond for pieces in better condition.
The best 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster Professional to consider is the 145.022 that was the first reference that was powered by the caliber 861. Robert-Jan wrote a great two-part buyer’s guide for the AAA replica Omega Speedmaster 145.022. In the first part, he explains what makes this a great vintage piece to add to any collection. In the second part, RJ explains in detail how to properly tell the different Swiss made copy Omega 145.022 versions apart.
For me, there are multiple reasons that this is the high quality replica Omega Speedmaster Professional to go for. The first is that it’s still affordable with prices starting at around €4K and ranging up to €10K for one in great condition with box and papers. Secondly, this is the reference that was produced in my year of birth. A perfect fake Omega Speedmaster 145.022-76 from 1977 is second on my list of Omega Speedmaster replica for men purchases as a birth year watch is simply something special.
Additionally, NASA astronaut Ron Evans had one with him during the Apollo 17 mission that was very close to the moon. So it’s very much part of the legendary Apollo program. There are so many more reasons why this is such a great addition to any collection but just the fact that it’s a top Swiss copy Omega Speedmaster “Moonwatch” should tell you all you need to know.
