This watch is a typical case of “those who know, know” and a discreet introduction by a brand. Often, when something new appears, brands accompany the release with a lot of fanfare and noise. Swiss made replica Omega did the opposite with a watch that we had to discover by ourselves. And the surprise was even sweeter, as this CK 859 Re-Edition is probably the best new 1:1 super clone Omega of the year. Modelled after a classic “Calatrava-styled” model from the 1930s, it’s a great example of the past inspiring the present.
Overall, it’s a modern perfect replica Omega with a case resized to a contemporary 39mm, fitted with an advanced hand-wound Master-Chronometer movement. What matters is the dial and the shape of the case, both packed with retro charm and details that speak to an audience of vintage lovers. The dial is made of solid silver, with a classic sector style and old-school elements on the logo and the hands. And it’s not even a hyped-up, ridiculously overpriced, unobtainable watch, but a nicely priced (at least considering it’s an aaa quality fake Omega), handsome time-only watch that’s numbered but not limited.
