AAA quality fake Omega has a similar Easter egg in its 2018 Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Ultraman, also called the Speedmaster ST2. Lit with lume instead of LED, the Ultraman Limited Edition reveals its secret after charging in bright light for a while and then going into darkness. In the running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock is a lumed silhouette of Ultraman. It’s done in a material that appears black in daylight but glows orange, hiding Ultraman within the black dial until nightfall. This, in my opinion, makes the cheap replica Omega Speedmaster ST2 one of the coolest yet understated Speedies out there.
The perfect replica Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award 50th Anniversary has a different kind of Easter egg. The transparent case back shows a close-up of the Moon with Earth and starry space in the background. When the chronograph is running, a little Snoopy riding in a spacecraft flies across space. It’s quite a cool animation that one can only see with the luxury fake watch off the wrist and the chronograph running.
Omega and Rolex etchings
Less cool but still interesting are the little details found on a myriad of high-end watches that serve as anti-counterfeiting devices. Swiss movement replica Omega etches its trademark Greek omega symbol in the center of its Speedmaster crystals. Rolex etches its crown on its watch crystals at 6 o’clock. Other brands do something similar, with little signatures that only a loupe or certain angle of viewing can reveal. They’re somewhat hidden, but they don’t illicit quite the same joy upon discovery as some of these other Easter eggs do — unless one was worried their luxury super clone Omega was a fake. It’s no animation on the case back for sure.
