Though the above picks are pricey, I don’t need or want the most expensive replica watches online in the world. Even with infinite money, I would still enjoy watches that only cost a few hundred euros (or Swiss francs). Having no limit would just allow me to pick some of the watches that I think are extraordinary in terms of complications and materials, as well as those with great stories. And that’s where the most expensive watch in this overview comes into play. In the end, I collect perfect fake Omega Speedmaster watches (the others I have are just an accumulation of timepieces), and owning an astronaut-worn/owned Speedmaster in gold is just something very special to me.
A perfect example of a watch I’d love to own if money were no object is this luxury fake Omega Speedmaster Professional BA145.022-69 “Tribute to Astronauts” that belonged to astronaut Scott Carpenter. Just like the other (active) NASA astronauts at the time, he received it during a dinner in the Warwick Hotel in Houston in 1969. Some astronauts who were only on missions after 1969 received theirs later on (those watches are numbered 1000–1008).
This AAA quality replica Omega CA is now for sale from our friend Eric at Wind Vintage for US$1,500,000. Do I prefer this watch over the new Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Universelle, which has a similar price tag, for example? Yes, I do. For me, it’s not always about the complexity of a watch or the desirability of a certain Haute Horlogerie brand, but rather, what makes my horological heart tick faster.
