In 1995, Swiss fake Omega introduced an “Apollo 13” mission-patch model to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the mission. The brand only produced 999 pieces initially, with another 50 pieces later on for the special 23-watch mission cases. In those days (if you can believe it), it took a while to sell 999 watches. This is why you’ll find these models with the old-style bracelet (reference 1479) as well as the later one (1498). AAA replica Omega UK introduced the new bracelet in 1996, so it certainly took over a year for these watches to sell out.
Then, in 2003, perfect fake Omega introduced the Speedmaster Snoopy Award, a limited edition of no less than 5,441 pieces in total. The number corresponds to the time spent in space (142 hours, 54 minutes, and 41 seconds). A fun fact is that this watch didn’t sell well at first. Top super clone Omega’s communication and marketing teams didn’t put as much effort into clarifying the Apollo 13 story as they did later. As a result, some were in stock at dealers for a long time — even years!
What could you do in 14 seconds?
In 2015, best 1:1 fake Omega UK made a bigger fuss about the Apollo 13 mission and the role the Speedmaster played. Omega also decided to go all-in when it came to the design. The 2003 edition had been basically a regular Moonwatch with a small patch on the 9-o’clock sub-dial and a special case back. The 2015 best replica watch, however, had an all-white dial and a beautiful case back. The case back showed a silver Snoopy figure on a dark blue enamel background with silver powder as “stars”. On the dial side, there’s the Snoopy figure at 9 o’clock and “What could you do in 14 seconds?” on the outer track. You will also find the text balloon with “Failure is not an option” in the center of the dial.
To some, it was a bit gimmicky, but others loved it, and it was the first time I saw an Omega Speedmaster replica for sale sell out so quickly. This watch was a limited edition of 1970 pieces, referring to the year of the Apollo 13 mission.
A brilliant surprise in the Snoopy 3
Even before the official launch on October 5th, 2020, collectors and enthusiasts were awaiting the introduction of the 50th-anniversary Snoopy watch. Compared to the 45th-anniversary Snoopy Speedmaster from 2015, the design department at Swiss movement fake Omega went a few steps further. This time, the watch received a new technical feature/complication. Aside from the beautiful silver-and-blue dial, there’s an automaton on the case back. If you start the chronograph, you will see Snoopy orbiting the Moon in his spacecraft. The Earth disc is constantly moving, as it links to the small seconds. The chronograph hand connects to the automaton on the case back with an invisible hand that holds the white spacecraft. In order to make it work, Omega replica Paypal UK used lightweight aluminum hands for the chronograph. Otherwise, the extra “weight” would make it impossible for the automaton to function properly.
Assuming that you’re already familiar with the high quality replica Omega Speedmaster Snoopy 50th Anniversary, I will refrain from making this an overview of all details and design elements. We covered the watch in-depth here and here in case you want to know more about it.
