Silver Snoopy Award 2015
I believe that introducing this Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award model in 2015 drastically changed the game for perfect replica Omega’s iconic chronograph. It sold out (or rather sold in to Omega boutiques and retailers) in a flash, and there has been an incredibly huge demand for these ever since. Omega only made 1970 of them, commemorating the year that cheap fake Omega received the Silver Snoopy Award from NASA (you can read about it here). The black and white dial worked well with the famous beagle theme.
Some complained a bit about the text balloon on the dial or the printing of Snoopy in the sub-dial at 9 o’clock. Nevertheless, this model remains one of the most highly sought-after modern 1:1 fake Omega Speedmasters today. The Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award 2015 case was slightly different from the regular Speedmaster model at the time and had a snap-on case back. AAA quality replica Omega put it on a matching black fabric strap with white stitching.
Apollo 11 35th Anniversary, Mitsukoshi, or Tokyo 2020
“Fowl play!” you could say. In 2003, Swiss made replica Omega introduced a limited series of 300 Speedmasters with panda dials for the Japanese Mitsukoshi luxury department store. A late friend of mine was able to secure one back then, but many of those you see around now are modified standard Speedmasters. Omega wasn’t too careful about shipping around spare parts in those days, so this model was easy to recreate. One year later, cheap super clone Omega used basically the same design for the 35th-anniversary edition of the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 watch.
The difference is that it featured “July 20, 1969” printed in red on the dial and a commemorative case back showing the Apollo 11 eagle mission patch. This high quality fake Omega Speedmaster Professional ref. 3569.31 was limited to 3,500 pieces. In 2018, Swiss movement replica Omega introduced a set of Speedmaster Professional watches for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games (postponed due to COVID-19). One of the five Speedmaster models, with its panda dial, was based on the Mitsukoshi/Apollo 11 35th-anniversary model.
