Of course, we couldn’t create a vintage 1:1 super clone Omega UK theme without including a Speedmaster. There’s a reason gate-keeping watch collectors demand we all own one; the Speedy really is one of the best sport chronographs ever created and there is just so much to dig into when it comes to references and variants. We have the luxury of handling many of these slightly different iterations of the same core concept here on the H Vintage desk and actually pass on purchasing the vast majority of cheap fake Omega Speedmasters we come across. Only the best make it to the Shop and this one is worth a serious look.
The 1:1 super clone Omega Speedmaster reference 145.022-71ST is the first full reference to hit the Omega catalog following Apollo 11’s moon landing, an event that changed the course of human history (to many) and undoubtably changed the course of AAA quality copy Omega’s brand history. In order to celebrate the Speedmaster’s involvement in NASA’s Apollo program and eventual landing, Omega redesigned the Speedy’s caseback. So the story goes, while Swiss made replica Omega awaited approval to state “flight-qualified by NASA for all manned space missions” around a Hippocampus medallion on the new caseback, examples of the ref. 145.022-71ST left the factory with no outer engraving. The “No NASA” variant was born.
This example is in really great shape, with an excellent vintage Omega Speedmaster super clone for sale look. We especially love finding early Speedies with these “flat-link” bracelets as they add to the charm with a certain “jangle” that works on the wrist so well. With an Extract from the Archives of Swiss movement replica Omega as well, this Speedmaster is more complete than most; check it out right here.
