One of the year’s most buzz-worthy releases, the silver dial fake Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary Edition, launched in celebration of the 1970 Award — named for Charles Schulz’s cartoon beagle, an official NASA mascot — bestowed upon Omega by the space organization for its contributions its “Moonwatch” had made to its missions.
The Omega copy watch with steel case has all the elements of a classic Speedmaster, with some extra-special details added, like the image of Snoopy on the 9 o’clock subdial; the use of blue ceramic for the tachymeter bezel, and most notably, the “animated” design of the caseback, upon which an astronaut Snoopy in a command module travels around a photo-realistic moon in tune with the motion of the chronograph while a spinning Earth disk rotates once per minute in accord with the seconds hand. Behind this cosmic tableau ticks Omega’s manually wound Caliber 3861.
Jack Heuer — great-grandson of TAG Heuer’s founder, its former CEO, and current Honorary Chairman — turned 88 this year, and the watch company that still bears his surname celebrated with a very special timepiece in rose gold, Jack’s favorite material, based on his favorite vintage watch, the Heuer Carrera Ref. 1158CHN. The rose gold case replica TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Jack Heuer 88th Birthday Gold Limited Edition hails from the recently introduced Carrera Chronograph family, a dressier iteration of the motorsport-inspired original Carrera, which Jack Heuer famously created in 1963.
The 42-mm case frames a silver opaline dial that is noteworthy for the horizontal applied “8” symbols in its center, representing both Jack Heuer’s 88th birthday as well as a double infinity loop, a sly visual reference to Jack’s motto, “Time never stops, why should we?” Like its siblings in the Carrera Chronograph collection, distinguished from the mainline Carrera models by the lack of a tachymeter scale on the bezel, the perfect TAG Heuer replica watch contains the automatic, Swiss-made Caliber Heuer 02.
