I am often asked why I only buy and wear perfect Omega replica watches. Well, that’s not entirely the case of course. I also own watches from other brands like Oris, Breguet, Nomos, Rolex, Hamilton, Seiko, Chronoswiss, Breitling, Swatch, G-Shock, and a bunch of other perhaps lesser-known ones. And in the past, I’ve owned IWC, Sinn, Audemars Piguet, Linde Werdelin, and others as well. But truth be told, most of my watches are UK Swiss made fake Omegas. To be honest, most people that ask me about it are colleague journalists and bloggers who feel I am too focused on one brand. Readers of Fratello aren’t too concerned with it, though, given the fact we get so many emails and messages with questions about Omega super clone watches online.
But I thought it would be a good moment to explain why I like luxury replica Omega so much. Or actually, love it. I am not afraid to admit this, as I really do have a weak spot for this brand. I also feel that there is little harm in this, even being a journalist. A car magazine journalist can share his love for the Porsche 911, so why can’t I share mine for a watch brand? It also doesn’t mean I don’t like other brands or prefer certain watches from other brands over certain Swiss copy Omega watches (which is the case).
It’s a family tradition
For this story, we need to go back, way back, to sometime in the 1960s in the Netherlands. It has nothing to do with the Moonwatch or the space program as such. It has to do with a bridal boutique. It’s the one below actually that was located in the east part of the Netherlands in a city called Enschede.
Constellation on a gold bracelet
My grandfather chose a cheap fake Omega Constellation (in the picture above) and my grandmother a small self-winding ladies’ watch on a gold Milanese bracelet. Before, my grandfather was wearing a pilot’s watch that he got from a pilot from the US Army at the end of World War II (1945). The Constellation replaced that watch and unfortunately, we have no clue where the pilot watch went or is now.
I can only imagine that my grandfather put a lot of research and work into choosing his aaa quality replica Omega UK as he did with many other things he bought in those years. Whether it was a car, camera, or (Danish design) furniture, he studied these things very carefully. Unfortunately, I never asked him about this. Below is an image from the late 1960s or early 1970s that shows my grandfather wearing his Constellation on the original mesh bracelet.
Omega Genève with a red seconds hand
Also in 1969, my father finished high school and received a watch as a graduation gift. It was an aaa quality replica Omega Genève with a black dial and with a red seconds hand. There were no boxes or papers as it was quite common back then to leave that stuff behind at the jeweler. My family wore these Swiss movement fake Omega watches for decades. The Omega Genève from my father was on his wrist for many years and he still wears it. Below is an image of him wearing the watch during his time in the military service.
The watch on the Moon
In the 1980s, when I was a kid, my father told me that high quality replica Omega UK was the brand that was used by the astronauts on the Moon. But being a kid, that didn’t really ring a bell, even though I was very interested in the Space Shuttle program as a Dutch astronaut by the name of Wubbo Ockels took part in one of the early missions (1985). My father was wearing the black dial Omega Genève but also had other watches to wear (like his pie-pan Constellation from his grandfather). I found myself wearing Casios in the 1980s and Swatch watches in the early 1990s. Although these can be seen as disposable and inexpensive watches (I still have all of them by the way), I was very fond of them and had an interest in watches. One of my earliest memories is of our neighbor showing off his new Seiko watch with a moonphase indicator on the dial. I also loved all these digital copy watches for sale with video games embedded and, of course, the ones with a calculator.
