As you probably know, if there’s one watch that means a lot to me, it’s the perfect replica Omega Speedmaster Professional. However, Gerard already took the opportunity to offer the standard Moonwatch as a pre-owned option in this list of sub-€5,000 watches, so here’s another alternative for you. It’s the Speedmaster Broad Arrow Replica — or “Relaunch,” as Omega started calling it later. At some point, luxury fake Omega UK realized the name “Replica” was poorly chosen in 1997 when this watch came out.
The cheap fake Omega Speedmaster 3594.50 debuted as part of the Mission Cases in 1997, each containing 22 Speedmasters with a NASA mission patch, a Speedmaster Replica, and a spare 1861 movement. This marked the introduction of the Omega caliber 1861, the successor of the 861 movement. These best 1:1 replica Omega Speedmasters also had the new-style bracelet and Super-LumiNova rather than tritium. Forty of these Mission Cases were available for the market and ten for demonstration/exhibition purposes. One of the boxes is on display at the NASA Center in Houston, Texas. The year after, the 3594.50 became available in the regular collection until 2003.
You will find slight differences in the bracelets and boxes that came with the AAA quality copy Omega Speedmaster 3594.50. Bracelets before 2000 have no release buttons on the clasp and taper to 17mm. After 2000, the ref. 1499 (and 1498) bracelets were replaced by the straight version (20mm) with reference 1998. This super clone Omega for sale came in either a black leather box or the later red leather box.
I also have one of these, which was a gift for my first Father’s Day in 2013. It’s a charming variation on the 42mm Speedmaster Professional and one of Swiss made replica Omega’s first attempts to recreate a classic (CK2915). The later Speedmaster ’57 from 2017 was much more on point and nearly an exact copy of the original Speedmaster CK2915 from 1957, but the Speedmaster Replica 3594.50 is a fun and quirky edition.
The dial is a bit grayer than the regular Moonwatch, and the silver Broad Arrow hands can have a nice contrasting effect depending on the light. One important note: some of these watches had an issue with corrosion on the applied high quality fake Omega logo. Check the applied logo if you’re in the market for one of these.
Over 20 of these Omega Speedmaster 3594.50 replica watches online are currently for sale on Chrono24, with the majority below €5,000.
