Swiss fake Omega MoonSwatch never dies. Just ask Daniel Craig, the former 007, who wore the Mission to Neptune model to the National Board of Review 2023 Awards Gala Sunday evening — one of many such events during Oscar season.
Standing onstage in New York City, in front of deep blue – okay, purplish– curtains, Craig presented the award for Best Supporting Actress to Janelle Monáe for her role in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The presentation was fitting as Craig plays the now famous Detective Benoit Blanc in the film.
We wrote about Glass Onion late last year as Craig wears a special perfect fake Omega Seamaster in the film. His connection to high quality replica Omega as James Bond is well documented, and he can often be seen with a Speedmaster in real life on the late-night talk show circuit. But seeing the dapper Craig at an awards banquet, in a suit, with a top super clone Omega MoonSwatch is one of those “holy sh*t” watch spotting moments.
Last night, our own vintage maven Tony Traina posted a photo of Craig from the gala on Hodinkee Slack. As the editor who’s arguably covered the best 1:1 replica Omega MoonSwatch the most around here, I just knew we had to share this one. Thanks for the heads up, Tony.
For those who don’t know, the MoonSwatch was the product of a surprising collaboration between Swatch and AAA quality fake Omega resulting in a bio-ceramic, Swatchified, version of the iconic Speedmaster in 11 celestial color variations at a wallet-friendly price of $260. It was a cultural phenomenon — the watch you couldn’t purchase online. We named it our Watch of the Year for 2022. If you want to read more about it, go here, or here, or here.
Craig’s appearance in NYC with the Mission to Neptune — with its stark blue case and velcro strap — proves that the Swiss movement replica Omega MoonSwatch endures. Knives Out got a sequel. Will MoonSwatch get one too?
