Why I sold my favourite watch – the UK 2008 Luxury Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 42mm

When a wound is fresh it hurts the most to prod it, but the earlier the treatment begins the sooner the healing process can resolve. Some of you may have previously read my admittedly numerous articles mentioning my 2008 best fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, including this veritable love poem to the watch as I declared that it would be my most-worn watch of 2021.

Even though my first watch, and one that I am certain that I’ll never sell, was my great-grandfather’s 1958 1:1 replica Omega Seamaster that I had fixed up, my partner of nearly four years told me that the Planet Ocean was the one they most strongly associated with me as “my” watch, and that everything else I’d ever owned was just “some other watch”. This isn’t going to be a story of seller’s remorse, and it’s not going to be a story about raking in “investment” profits. Instead, I’m going to weave the tale of why I sold my favourite super clone watch, and why it could happen to you.

This story does get personal, and perhaps strays into territory that I shouldn’t be admitting as a copy watch reviewer, but I will start at the beginning. The year is 2019, and I’d begun working at my first full-time job in audio post-production. I’d been wearing my heirloom 1958 AAA replica Omega Seamaster UK for about six months after its repairs, and I thought I was set for life in terms of watches. But, when that first monthly payment came in, all the possibilities started swirling through my head. I used a big chunk of my first paycheque on building my dream guitar, which I still play on a nearly daily basis, and then spent the next month researching watches on my lunch breaks.

My work in live music was still viable in the pre-Covid years, so I wanted something that I wouldn’t be afraid of knocking around microphone stands and belligerent band members like I was with the vintage piece. I’d been previously smitten with the luxury fake Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch – as we all are at some point – but that was well out of my budget. I was also a huge fan of Casino Royale starring Daniel Craig, and then I stumbled across what he wore in the film.

I can still feel the butterflies I felt then, as I felt obsession course through my veins scouring Gumtree, eBay, Marketplace, Chrono24, Chronext and a myriad of other vendors trying to find a Planet Ocean that I could afford. At the time I was still a cheap copy watch novice, but this experience gave me a rapid course in spotting minute details. Pretty soon I could tell the differences between the Planet Ocean iterations, even within that same generation. I saw a few of the Limited Edition versions with the 007-counterbalance on the seconds hand, and I started learning about watch diameters and the effect they play in comfort. I’d had a few offers rejected to the absolute limit of what I could afford, which was $3000 AUD, and eventually I struck gold through an eBay listing for the watch of my dreams. It was the 42mm Omega replica for sale UK which was released around the same time as Quantum of Solace, but being the same black-on-black colour scheme as Bond’s watch from Casino Royale I was happy to opt for the version that fit my smaller wrists better than the 45.5mm monster that I’d previously been bidding on. The condition looked pretty great for a top Swiss copy watch that had clearly been worn and loved before, and with a recent service receipt I was too excited to worry about whether or not it had papers (after all, if a factory can copy a watch, they can certainly copy a document).

This is unfortunately where the seeds of negativity begin to sprout, as watches can do strange things to our minds. That $3000 AUD was more than a month’s pay, and I’d just spent it less than two hours after it had come in. Instantly, my perception of money and value had become warped, and it shaped my collecting habits for years to come. While most people on the kind of salary I had would have considered a $300 watch a luxury, my next year or so became a flurry of purchases, flips and trades. Some highlights I’d like to pick out were a 1940s perfect replica Omega with a repainted dial, a Straton Syncro with the Seiko NE88 movement, a Longines Avigation BigEye, a King Seiko 4502-7001 from 1971, and more recently a Cartier Tank Basculante. All of these high quality fake watches were great, and some of them were even sold at a margin, but although I enjoyed wearing them I now believe that I had bought them for that instant dopamine hit you get when you spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars in one single purchase.

Only three or four years have passed, but they were incredibly formative years, and my feelings around that 2008 best fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean have only grown stronger. It came with me on some of the most significant journeys of my life, accompanying the experiences which defined me as an independent person. It reminded me not only of the weekend trips I took it on, and not only of the film which I loved so much, but I had also imprinted upon it a loose connection to the memory of Chris Cornell who sang the Casino Royale theme song, and whose death still affects me since 2017. You can go back and read my previous article about it if you want to know the things I loved in regards to its visual features, but I’ve come to realise that the place it has in my heart is almost entirely separate to the physical object.

So, that brings us to the present day. I’d always assumed that I loved that Swiss movement replica Omega too much to sell it, but 2021 in particular brought with it a lot of time for introspective thought and consideration. I thought about what means most to me, and how my life reflects that. The more I pondered it, the less comfortable I felt about the entire idea of owning a watch that was worth so much. It’s difficult to express why selling a cheap copy watch I bought for $3000 for $4750 was not a financial decision, but at its core it was about freeing myself. The physical object of the Planet Ocean was something I liked, but I didn’t love it. It was tied up in a masculinity that I was steadily moving away from, and wearing it in public had started to feel like some kind of mean boast.

To be completely honest, it was my first pang of post-sale regret that spurred me on to write this in-depth story as a form of grief recovery, but I’m glad to say that it has really worked. Compersion is a term often used as the opposite of jealousy, and that is what I feel for the latest owner of that 2008 Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean replica Paypal. I feel much more comfortable with a slightly humbler watch collection, and my new DOXA 600T Sharkrambler fills the black-dial-diver hole on my Swiss made copy watch shelf perfectly, with a few extra thousand still in the bank. I hope that you feel inspired to take a closer look at the things you own and what exactly it is about them that sparks joy. You may find yourself even more attached to them, or you may decide to let someone else share in that memory-making we call watch collecting.

INTRODUCING THE UK BEST FAKE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER CALIBRE 321 IN CANOPUS GOLD

In what has now become a January tradition, best 1:1 fake Omega has unveiled a new Speedmaster on the occasion of the first Speedy Tuesday of the year. Last year, of course, we got an all new Moonwatch with an upgraded movement featuring a co-axial escapement and METAS certification, a watch that proved to be one of the biggest hits of the year. This year’s Speedy is impressive, but in a completely different kind of way.

While last year’s cheap replica Omega Speedmaster was for the masses, this one is, well, very much the opposite. Made from solid white gold and running on Omega’s Calibre 321, this new reference pays tribute to the very first Omega Speedmaster fake online in the most opulent way imaginable.

The new Speedmaster Calibre 321 is inspired by the original CK2915-1 Speedmaster, released in 1957. The important hallmarks of that watch are very much present in this new version in Canopus gold (that’s luxury fake Omega’s own white gold alloy). The new copy watch features straight lugs, a broad arrow hour hand, and a case that measures a svelte 38.6mm. The bracelet is in the vintage “flat link” style that has once again emerged as the favorite of Speedy enthusiasts (or maybe it always has been), and of course the bezel has the appropriate “dot over 90” layout.

But this is more than just a white gold reissue of the original Omega Speedmaster replica for sale. That would be rather boring. Omega, after all, has already reissued that original Speedmater, and Speedmasters very much like it, in a number of ways over the years. It goes without saying that nobody has ever accused AAA fake Omega of being shy when it comes to dredging up the past, and some of their releases inspired by historic models (or just history) are more effective than others at getting collectors excited.

For this release, Swiss made fake Omega has imbued nearly every detail of the watch with something unique and special, creating what might be the most maximalist Speedmaster of them all, with the possible exception of the platinum Speedy released in the summer of 2019, the first watch of this new batch with Calibre 321 movements inside.

Let’s start with the dial. It’s a spot on recreation of the stepped dial found in vintage Speedmasters, but best quality replica Omega UK has used multiple layers of onyx in its construction. The use of onyx is not unheard of in a Speedmaster (the platinum Calibre 321 Speedmaster has an onyx dial accented with meteorite subdials), but it’s certainly rare, and adds an unmistakable luxe touch to a super clone watch that many associate with more sporting activities (like landing on the moon). Onyx has a high gloss and depth that should complement the white gold case and bracelet nicely.

Flipping the watch over reveals the Calibre 321, AAA replica Omega’s historic hand wound chronograph movement. Now, I’ve been known to poke fun at Omega for endless limited and special editions, but kidding aside, the reintroduction of the 321 seems to be genuinely low production and hard to come by. The first stainless steel Speedmaster with the “new” 321 movement is simply not available anywhere, as top super clone Omega has them trickling out of their workshop seemingly one by one, fulfilling waitlist orders at a pace that must be maddening for anyone who made a deposit when they were first made available. Part of the slowness of the rollout is surely a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, but Swiss movement fake Omega has also made a point of highlighting that these movements are made the old fashioned way, largely by hand by a single master watchmaker, and completely separate from the production of Omega’s other movements.

The price of the new cheap fake Omega Speedmaster Calibre 321 in Canopus Gold (reference number 311.50.39.30.01.001) is $81,000. What is there to say, really, about a white gold Speedmaster approaching six figures? Production is sure to be incredibly limited, and there are wealthy people who are Speedmaster obsessed that will line up to buy one of these, but it’s impossible not to think about alternatives at and around that price point. A. Lange & Sohne’s 1815 Chronograph in white gold, for example, is a full $20,000 less, and a Datograph (in pink gold) comes in at almost exactly the same price as this Omega Speedmaster replica for men.

Both of the Langes have movements that are obsessively hand finished, although they’re obviously very different in terms of their aesthetic. It does seem, however, that Omega replica for sale UK is positioning this watch against exactly that type of high end chronograph, similarly to how the Ed White 321 introduced two years ago was seen by many as going right at the Rolex Daytona. What it comes down to is that this is just a very different type of Speedmaster than the one that inspired good natured debate over its tool copy watch bona fides a few months ago.

The Omega Speedmaster fake Paypal as a full fledged luxury product isn’t exactly a new idea (this is far from the first Speedmaster in a precious metal, after all), but introducing this watch now, in a watch market that dealers and auction houses routinely refer to as “frothy” (one of the great descriptive words to describe market activity, in my humble opinion) is a play that seems entirely of the moment, when watches on the secondhand market are selling for unheard of amounts, and many are seriously wondering if the bubble is about to burst. Time will tell if that will happen in 2022, or if prices will continue to climb, but it’s clear that at the start of the year, wholesale replica Omega thinks the world is ready for a nearly $100,000 Speedy.

UK Luxury Replica Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.012-67SP

The best fake Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.012-67SP that once belonged to Ralph Ellison was offered as Lot 138 on the Phillips auction on December 12th. Interestingly, it had an estimate of just $10,000 to $20,000. Now, I never understand these estimates or the purpose of them. A regular 145.012 in good condition would already fetch that amount.

But this Swiss made replica Omega both belonged to and sat on the wrist of a renowned and influential American writer. Not only that, but it also had provenance to back it up. Before the watch went to auction, and even before the former owner had certainty about the previous life of this particular Omega Speedmaster fake for sale, it was serviced and received new (period-correct) pushers.

Why did it sell for such a high price?
For me, it is difficult to grasp why this best quality replica Omega fetched the amount of $667,800. I do get that the author was very famous and that his novel was one of great literary importance. But it is still difficult to comprehend how far someone is willing to go to actually own such a timepiece. I completely blame myself for not fully understanding this, as I’m also unaware of the effect of this novel on people, or just how much praise Ellison received for it. So, who better to ask than Petros Protopapas, the Head of Brand Heritage at luxury copy Omega in Switzerland?

Completing the puzzle
The sale of this special AAA replica Omega Speedmaster Pro 145.012-67 that was worn by Ralph Ellison shows once more that heritage and storytelling are very valuable. Real stories, that is. I can imagine how satisfying it must have been to complete the story around this watch and its previous ownership. It’s a puzzle that was completed with the help of other 1:1 fake Omega watch enthusiasts and collectors. In this case, the definitive answer came from insurance papers that were stored in a box filled with documents and photos at the Library of Congress (LOC) Photo Archives.

UK AAA Quality Replica Omega’s Iconic Speedmaster Gets a Rare Aesthetic Revamp

It’s not easy tinkering with an icon. The steel UK 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster—aka the Moonwatch, as in the one NASA astronauts wore on the Apollo missions—is an epic piece recognizable at ten paces. It belongs in any collection of historic watches. Changes to the look of it have been minimal and made only after much deliberation.

All of which makes the 43mm Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope replica online, which is waitlisted on Omega’s website but available to buy now at retailers like Watches of Switzerland, something of a quantum departure.

The UK AAA fake Omega Chronoscope is available in six versions in steel and one in gold, including a panda dial (silver with black subdials), a blue dial, and, most striking of all, an all-silver dial with blue hands. Then there’s the unmissable set of three concentric circles emanating from the center; this element makes the high quality replica watch truly compelling.

Put simply, a Swiss made replica Omega is a graphic measuring device that uses the passing of time to compute all sorts of interesting data. It combines three different tools. A telemeter measures your distance from a given event using the speed of sound. (You see a lightning strike, for instance, and start the chronograph. When you hear thunder, you stop it. The telemeter will show you how far away the bad weather is.) A more standard tachymeter measures speed over a known distance. (You track the time for a one-mile lap in a race, and it shows you the car’s speed.) And a pulsometer tells you your heart rate. (You start the chronometer, count 30 beats, stop it, and check your BPM.)
Back in the ’40s, when not much else could do the math, such functions were crammed into smaller sports replica watches for sale. Nowadays, you’ve got more room to house all that utility. Of course, you could probably do all this on your phone, too. But where’s the fun in that?
