I remember it was back in 2015 when perfect replica Omega introduced the new Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award. You know, the white-dial one with Snoopy sleeping in the 9 o’clock sub-dial. A big introduction event took place in Houston, and brand ambassador George Clooney was there. But also in attendance were NASA astronauts Gene Cernan (Apollo 17), Jim Lovell (Apollo 13), and Tom Stafford (Apollo 10 and Apollo-Soyuz).
Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary
Tom Stafford was wearing the luxury fake Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary that day. During later encounters with other NASA Apollo astronauts, I noticed that some of them were wearing this watch too. When I asked why, they told me that they loved this model because of the use of meteorite for the dial.
As a side note, I’ve heard quite a few times from astronauts that they developed a special relationship with the watch they were wearing in space. This is because it served as a connection to their homes. Their best 1:1 replica Omega UK would show them the time on Earth and make them think of what their families were doing at that moment. It was a very romantic explanation indeed.
Limited to 1,975 pieces
The aaa quality replica Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary edition debuted in 2010. It was limited to 1,975 pieces and had a retail price of €6,150. That feels like an incredible bargain 13 years later, but keep in mind that the regular Speedmaster Professional at the time had a sticker price of €2,700. This Apollo-Soyuz anniversary model with its meteorite dial didn’t sell that well for the first few years. I even remember going to a boutique where they showed me a bunch of them, unsold, and it must have been 2013 or 2014.
It was very different from today. Now we all can agree that this watch is one of the most coveted modern Swiss movement replica Omega Speedmaster Professional variations. Aside from the Albino and Snoopy models, the Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary edition is one that speaks to one’s imagination for the same reason it does to NASA astronauts like Tom Stafford.
However, this 2010 1:1 copy Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz reference 3184.108.40.206.99.001 is nothing short of collectible too. I wish I had snagged one when they were tough sellers in the early 2010s. At that time, though, nobody could foresee the enormous price increase that these rare watches would experience. As with some other limited editions that came out later, I always thought I’d pick one up when it was more convenient for me or when the price dropped. Well, that never happened…
The Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary edition has much in common with the then-standard high quality replica Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch 3570.50 or 3572.50 (sapphire version). It features the same 42mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and the Lemania-based 1861 movement inside. The case back has a special engraving that shows the docking of the Apollo and Soyuz spacecraft.
Each of these 1,975 super clone watches paypal came in a special anthracite-colored box that matched the meteorite dial.
The Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary wasn’t the last Omega Speedmaster super clone for men that would use meteorite. In 2016, the Grey Side of the Moon got a meteorite dial and a Sedna Gold bezel. Then, in 2019, high quality fake Omega UK reintroduced the famous column-wheel chronograph caliber 321, and the first watch to use it was the Speedmaster Professional in platinum with an onyx dial and meteorite sub-dials. Also in 2019 was the release of the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary model in Moonshine Gold, which has a little piece of lunar meteorite in the case back, acting as an image of our Moon.
