2012: UK Best 1:1 Replica Omega Speedmaster “First Omega In Space”
It feels impossible that 2012 was almost a decade ago, but time waits for no man. It was a pretty great year for luxury fake watches uk, one that would help set the course for the rest of the decade to come. Tudor released the Pelagos and first-gen Black Bay. Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet traded stainless steel blows with new editions of the Nautilus 5711 and Royal Oak “Jumbo.” Rolex surprised everyone with the AAA replica Rolex Sky-Dweller, its most complex release in decades. And anyone with a soft spot for indies will fondly recall the introduction of the Habring² Doppel 2.0.
Even with all those great options, my sentimental side means I’ve got one choice for 2012: the Speedmaster “First Omega In Space,” which became an instant smash hit among Speedy fans that year. This sub-40mm cheap fake Omega Speedmaster UK reproduces the legendary ref. CK2988 worn by astronaut Wally Schirra in space during 1962’s Mercury-Atlas 8 mission.
When best 1:1 fake Omega UK launched the “First OMEGA in Space” to commemorate 50 years since the Speedmaster’s inaugural space flight, it became the first Speedmaster Moonwatch since the 1960s to be produced with the straight lugs and symmetrical caseband of the “pre-Professional” series (which ended with the discontinuation of the Swiss movement replica Omega ref. 105.003 in 1969). Released as a numbered, unlimited edition – and quietly discontinued at some point in the last 18 months – this much-beloved modern Speedy is a timeless choice through and through. – L.B.
