Originally, I never thought about buying a new 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster Calibre 321, and I was casually looking for a 145.012 while I was waiting for my Snoopy to arrive. Then, out of the blue, a 321 “Ed White” became available via a friend — no markup and no waiting list. Nobody in our group of watch nerds wanted it, so I took a closer look. I was up for a 321 movement anyway, and I thought I’d give it a try as I was sure the risk was low and I could move it on if I didn’t like it. The perfect replica Omega CA arrived a few days later by courier (we were still in lockdown here in Germany). Unfortunately, my Snoopy had arrived just a day before by total surprise, and therefore, the 321 had to sit in waiting until the honeymoon with Snoopy was over.
I put the 321 in the vault, fully stickered and unworn. It stayed there for about one and a half years as I missed an occasion to “own” it. One day, we received the news that our first child was on the way and would be due in October 2022. Was this a reason to get a new cheap copy watch? It was! But what should I buy? A standard Speedy was too easy, and I already had four Omega Speedmasters replica for sale. A lefty Rolex GMT-Master II was not available without making a fool of myself at the AD, and I certainly wasn’t going to pay over retail. A Cartier? Possibly, but for some reason, I wasn’t smitten enough with what I found.
Wait a second…
During a conversation with my wife, I remembered the 321 in the vault and took it out. I tried it on for the first time and was in love immediately. How could I not have seen the beauty of this piece for such a long time? I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to take it out of hibernation, rip off the stickers, and bring it into the rotation to commemorate the birth of our son. So here it is, another unsellable AAA quality replica Omega in my box.
This watch is such a joy to wear and so special. Still, it is imperceptible to the eyes of normal people. A colleague at the office asked me the other day if it was an Omega super clone online CA. She said it looks exactly like the Moonwatch that her husband got for his birthday. Little did she know that a 321 Ed White doesn’t have much in common with a 3861 cheap fake Omega Speedmaster Professional. And this, my dear watch nerds, is something that I enjoy a lot. It’s rare and special and yet so invisible.
…and a MoonSwatch
Well, lying next to the box is always this funny plastic thing that created too much buzz in 2022. While I truly love the high quality replica watches that I described above, this one is the best to wear when playing with a toddler, so I am afraid the MoonSwatch Mission on Earth gets the most wrist time these days.
