This Swiss made fake Omega UK and Swatch joint mission takes the art of collaboration to the next level though. The journey started nine months ago in a meeting room in Biel with Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann, Swatch creative director Carlo Giordanetti and Omega head of product design Gregory Kissling and Hayek all tasked with coming up with a collaboration that will hit the spot. And the AAA replica Omega Speedmaster MoonSwatch collection is what they decided on, as the CEO of Swatch Group Nick Hayek tells GQ.
“Collabs are very fashionable, between Gucci, Balenciaga, whoever is working together. But often it’s just a marketing gig where you put the logos from one to the product of the other one and that’s it. Here we wanted to go a step further, because we have an iconic brand like cheap fake Omega UK, that has a product that is an icon in the Swiss watch industry, the Speedmaster. And on the other side, Swatch is an icon because it has saved the Swiss watch industry. When everybody was only focusing on luxury, Swatch was there, and Swatch is an innovator,” says Hayek. It was his late father who was responsible for saving the Swiss copy watch industry and today, with this collaboration, Hayek Jr may well be the man responsible for evolving it and shaping the future.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Swiss made replica Omega x Swatch Speedmaster MoonSwatch.
There are 11 pieces, all named after planets and each with their own unique colourway. The material for all of the pieces is bioceramic, which is patented by Swatch. This is an important differentiation for high quality replica Omega, as it’s a forward-looking new material and demonstrates something new and progressive. All models have a Velcro strap and feature supernova for the indexes and also for the hands. This lume is exactly the same type of Super-LumiNova used for 1:1 fake Omega Speedmasters, emitting a green emission in the dark.
None of the pieces are limited edition or numbered. True to the top copy Omega Speedmaster’s form, the diameter of the watch is 42mm, the thickness is 13mm and the MoonSwatch shares the same glass material for the case. The readability of the chronograph display is also extremely exact copy Omega Speedmaster like, which is all the more impressive because all watches are being manufactured from the Swatch factories. On each caseback sits an image of the respective planet each is. These are sat over the battery and have come directly from NASA.
Uranus is pale blue, Pluto is grey with a burgundy bezel (a nice nod to the super clone Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo 11), Venus is powdery pink and comes in 38mm with oval subdials while Earth is blue and green. Mars is red, which Kissling notes was the most difficult colour to perfect in bioceramic. It also boasts the Alaska Project hands (another nice nod to past Speedmasters for those in the know). For Saturn, the watch is beige and dark brown with rings circling the chronometer at 6 o’clock. Neptune is deep blue, Jupiter is bronze/beige with orange hands and Mercury has the two tones dial black and dark dark. That leaves the Sun, which is yellow and was the starting point of this project, and last but certainly not least the Moon is black and the most similar to the original Omega Speedmaster replica for sale.
Why it makes sense for Swiss movement replica Omega
People will likely ask whether or not luxury copy Omega had a choice in partaking in this collaboration – and it’s a question Omega CEO Aeschlimann is happy to answer. “If this would have only been a recycled swatch, or the normal shape of this watch, and just putting a name on it, I would have been totally against it,” says Aeschlimann. “What we’ve been able to do that by having Gregory [Kissling] very much involved, it’s like adding that with a new shape, new dials, everything is new in that. It’s even a bioceramic material that has never been done. So once you see the product and hear the whole story, you realise why we have done this.”
