Incredible UK Swiss Fake Omega Speedmaster Watches For €5,000 — The X-33

Two of my favorite luxury fake Omega Speedmaster watches are up for grabs (hey, everything is relative these days) for a total of €5,000. I am talking about the Speedmaster X-33 and the Split-Seconds (or Rattrapante). The Omega Speedmaster X-33 ref.3290.50 copy with steel case is even considered to be a Speedmaster Professional, and the Rattrapante reference 3540.50 seems to be sharing a very similar case design.

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 fake with steel bracelet doesn’t need a full introduction here on Fratello. We’ve covered it many times, and during our #SpeedyTuesday tour in 2019, we’ve talked with astronauts Terry Virts, Nicole Stott, and Jean-François Clervoy about the X-33 in detail. It’s a marvelous watch, no matter which generation of the three you’d pick.

The cheap copy Omega Speedmaster X-33 Generation 2 is still handed out by NASA to astronauts who are launched from the USA and Generation 3 is given to all astronauts and cosmonauts that leave Earth via Russia. Astronaut Jean-François Clervoy played a big role in developing the additional functionality of the X-33 Gen3. However, the Speedmaster X-33 was never qualified for EVA, as the LCD screen would immediately stop working due to the extreme temperature. So, there’s still the hand-wound Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch for that.
X-33 Generation 1
At some point, I had several X-33 watches at the same time. They were all Speedmaster X-33 Gen1 pieces, like the one pictured. I sold one to my colleague Michael Stockton, who probably only wore it once or twice. I guess he’s more into vintage mechanical watches, but at least he has one. The other one I sold to another friend of mine, who happens to be a (Speedmaster) watch collector as well. And that’s not a coincidence, of course. I kept the third and last one, for a very simple reason. This watch was owned by an ESA astronaut, a childhood hero of mine as he was the first Dutch citizen to fly on the Space Shuttle.
RJ’s Speedmaster X-33
He received the watch after his space endeavor, during the introduction event of the X-33 in 1998. He passed away a few years ago, unfortunately, and his watch ended up with me. I wear it occasionally, on a red fabric Omega strap. The high quality copy Omega X-33 is a great watch to wear, easy to operate — despite the number of buttons — and has its place in the history of space exploration. Besides the time, the chronograph, date, and alarm are most probably the functions you’ll be using. Although the mission timer can also be used to measure the length of your entire travel, for example. And the countdown alarm might be useful as well.
It may be quartz, but the manual might be handy
The best copy Omega Speedmaster X-33 I found for €2,050 comes without a box or papers, but if you’re looking for a watch to wear on daily basis, it is perfect. If you want one with a box and papers, you need to add a few hundred more. The box is kinda neat though, made of this white cloth that shows a resemblance with the astronaut suit. What you do need is a manual though, but you can find it online for sure. Or, if you prefer, there is always the chance of finding a physical one on eBay.

These manuals come in handy when trying to wrangle some of the watch’s more esoteric functions into check (especially the syncing of the hands with the digital display — that takes a bit of explanation. Most other settings, however, are pretty straightforward. Like most quartz-powered movements in cheap replica Omega watches, this caliber 1666 also features this End-Of-Life indicator.
The seconds hand will make 5-second jumps in the last few weeks of the batteries’ combined lifespan (there are two batteries inside the X-33). When you see this, it’s time to change! It is interesting to know is that the later X-33 Gen2 (easily identifiable by the different crown and the brushed instead of polished bezel inlay) had an updated caliber 1666 movement. The functionality didn’t change though. Most Speedmaster X-33 Gen1 watches that have been serviced by Omega are most likely to be updated with his newer caliber 1666.

My Next Best UK Fake Omega Speedmaster Is An Often Overlooked Model

This might come a bit unexpected, because my focus is collecting fake Omega Speedmaster Professional watches, or at least models that are in the line of Moonwatch descendants. And yes, I do have a Mark II, Speedmaster 125, Speedmaster LCD, Speedmaster X-33, etc. that are already the odd ones in my theme. When Omega introduced the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon in 2013, with its case diameter of 44.25mm, I was smitten by it. The all-black ceramic case, the ceramic dial, and, last but certainly not least, a beautiful in-house manufactured movement (caliber 9300). The perfect modern interpretation of an iconic chronograph.

Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon
I was going through our big database of pictures that we took during all of our Speedy Tuesday events, and I noticed that there’s not one picture of someone wearing a Swiss movement replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon. Yes, there are a few wearing the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8, which I still think is one of the best variations out there, but no one is wearing the original 2013 Dark Side of the Moon. It seems it is not the most loved watch among Speedmaster enthusiasts. While the Apollo 8 can be found on the wrists of several collectors, the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon ref.311.92.44.51.01.003 replica is clearly not perceived as interesting by die-hard Moonwatch collectors.

What makes the high quality copy Omega Speedmaster Dark Side so interesting?
How can you create a modern watch, that shares enough DNA with the original design, without becoming yet another heritage model? In the (very far) past, Omega tried this several times and this resulted in the famous Mark series. That endeavor continued up until the Mark V in the 1980s. This was Omega’s playground. We were treated to modern design — futuristic sometimes — with ingredients from the iconic Speedmaster design. Not every Mark series was a success. However, that’s not to say they didn’t become collectible among enthusiasts. Far from it, in fact…
Ceramics
In the past, I wondered (and also asked Omega during an event in 2011) about a black DLC Moonwatch, and if it would work or not. With the introduction of the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, some of my questions were answered. I like how it looks! And having tried it a few times, it is also one of the few black watches I would wear.

In the past, Omega did some variations on the Speedmaster using the “Mark” identifier, and in my opinion, the brand could have made this Dark Side of the Moon the Mark VI. It brought a few new things to the table for the Speedmaster, such as the ceramic case and dial, of course, but also the in-house developed self-winding chronograph movement.
Caliber 9300
This movement ticks a lot of boxes for me. Not only does it have a column-wheel mechanism, but it also has the Co-Axial escapement, silicon hairspring, and a proper power reserve of 60 hours. Last but not least, it is a beautiful movement to admire through its boxy sapphire case back.

Furthermore, the movement has been chronometer certified. The black ceramic case fake Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon was introduced a few years before Omega came up with the Master Chronometer standard, but it is a trustworthy watch nevertheless. You can probably do your own math: it seems inevitable that this will be updated at some point to a Master Chronometer certified watch.
It looks cool
A lot of my Speedmaster collecting friends ignore the Dark Side of the Moon. It is perhaps too modern, too ceramic, too bulky, but I think it looks cool. And to me, it is still one of the best-looking models from the Dark Side of the Moon collection.

But here’s where it might have stumbled: I think that Omega made a mistake by releasing so many variations of this watch, so soon after this first OG model. Although those are not bad looking pieces individually, it has diluted the concept of the Dark Side of the Moon. The Grey Side of the Moon was kind of a cool edition. It seemed natural to offer your clientele the option of a black or white dial (as Rolex does with the Daytona). But beyond that, the concept perhaps wore a bit thin and eroded the impact of the original model I genuinely like and respect.
Modern Speedmaster
I can’t believe that the Swiss movement replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon is already eight years old. It still feels like a very modern watch to me. Is it perfect? No, it isn’t. It could have been a bit slimmer (like the caliber 9900 Racing models and the more recent Apollo 8), for example. But it still impresses me with its looks, and it wouldn’t be bad to have something modern in my Speedmaster box.

My heart is with the Moonwatch. That’s what I love and love to collect. But I also think that every collector needs his or her go-to watch. For now, my Seamaster 1200M PloProf has become a watch that I wear almost daily when not wearing a Moonwatch. But I also “need” a modern Speedmaster that I can wear under any circumstances.

The original Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon ticks a lot of boxes! The case diameter of 44.25mm might be an issue for some. However, it suits me well and I’ve learned you really need to try it first before you ignore a watch based on its dimensions. The Ploprof is another excellent example of that.

The aaa quality copy Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon 311.92.44.51.01.003 is in the current Omega collection and retails for €10,800. Check the official Omega website for more information.

These tribute timepieces feature the iconic symbols associated with that watch, such as the asymmetrical case, the step dial, the double bevel caseback, and the famous dot over 90 (DON) and a dot diagonal to 70 on the anodized aluminium bezel ring. While it is important to recall so many details, it is also important to bring the watch into today’s world when it comes to the movement. This new Caliber 3861 ensures that the Moonwatch will be unaffected by magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss. In addition, the entire watch is certified as a Master Chronometer – the highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic-resistance in the Swiss watch industry.
