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.

Balazs — UK Swiss Omega Speedmaster Replica 321 Ed White Watches

I honestly did not see this coming. When I received my initial four Speedies at the beginning of the Speedmaster World Cup, I clearly saw the most potential in the best fake Omega Speedmaster 321 Ed White. However, I was also prepared for a surprise. But, this is a relatively new watch, and the list had many other iconic contenders. Just think of the recently fallen ST1, for example.

Or perhaps the Apollo XI 45th I went against in the semi-finals. Not to mention my personal favorite from my opening Group E article: the Japanese Racing. As RJ said, it would’ve been nice to see one of Fratello’s watches in the final, but hey, you guys decided otherwise. What strikes me the most is how different the Snoopy and the 321 Ed White are. They are night and day. Or better yet, black and white, just like their dials.
Less is more
I could get into bashing the Snoopy, telling you why the black dial replica Omega Speedmaster Ed White is better, nicer, more awesome watch is, but why should I do it? I mean, both watches got here because you guys love them so much. This also tells me another thing: you love odd, white-dialed Speedies as much as you love the ones that look pretty much like any regular Speedmaster Pro. So now let me talk to the guys who voted the Snoopy into the finals. I’m sure you have your reason why you chose the little white dog but I also know that its previous opponents were not on the level of the 321 Ed White.

I mean the First Omega in Space is cute but come on. Or the Tintin, a watch I deeply love, is no Snoopy indeed… Much less can it hold a candle to the Ed White. There can only be one winner. Should it really be a white dial Speedmaster with Snoopy on the dial? The winner of the Speedmaster World Cup? Or should it be a beautiful, clean Speedmaster that has both the iconic look and a legendary movement? You tell me.
Throughout this competition, I’ve been telling people not to compare prices. I want the replica watches to be compared as objects. This is what I’m telling you now. Let’s not look at how much a Silver Snoopy Award 2015 is compared to the 321 Ed White (we all know the answer). Rather, think about which watch you would rather own.

Can you walk into an Omega Boutique and buy or put your name down for a Silver Snoopy Award? I don’t think so. You can go to the usual suspects and pay a crazy premium. Nor can you walk into said Boutique, have a nice chat, try on some other models, drink a coffee, snag a Lifetime Magazine, and leave with an Ed White but definitely put your name down for one.
If the Silver Snoopy Award 2015 is a significant watch as RJ says, then what is the 321 Ed White? In case you have seen my previous articles about this amazing timepiece please stop reading now. Scroll a bit down and choose wisely. If, for whatever reason, you have missed those pieces here is a bit of a recap for you.

The high quality copy Omega 321 Ed White got its nickname from a legendary Astronaut. Ed White was the first American to perform an EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity). He took part in two missions (Gemini 4 and Apollo 1) respectively. Why does the watch bear his name? Because he used the predecessor of this model on his missions. That was a watch he purchased himself. The new 321 movement inside the watch, however, is connected to none other than Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the Moon.

It was Cernan’s watch that Omega clone used as the blueprint to recreate this historic caliber, the very movement that “stepped” on the Moon in 1969. Read, think, consider, and make the best decision by listening to your heart. As long as a Speedmaster wins, we all win. Thank you for your vote in advance.

Dear Speedmaster friends and voters, the ball is now in your court. Vote wisely!
