We do tend to make life choices for very different reasons, but when it comes to watches such choices are a whole different story. Some say high-quality replica watches UK are all about emotions, and though recently those emotions seem to often be mistaken for making profit (I’m talking to you, flippers) I still believe buying an item as superfluous as a mechanical watch takes more than cold calculation and a simple will to spend . . . or earn for that matter.
Unlike George Clooney, when I was a kid I did not look up to the sky and dream about being an astronaut. In Poland, space missions were more fantasy than reality (not to mention that I was born quite some time after the last one).
For me, it was all about sport – football, to be precise (or soccer for those reading across the pond). I played, watched, cheered, and wanted to be a professional player, which . . . . never happened, not very surprisingly.
About the only point of intersection between my childhood dreams and those of Mr. Clooney was that they were made of round objects of desire, although these objects were of very different natures. Frankly, a “dream” of space never actually arrived for me. But with age that bright object up in the sky began to fascinate me more and more. To no one’s surprise (you’re on a watch website after all) most of my primary knowledge about space and the moon came along with knowledge gained of the AAA perfect replica Omega Speedmaster watches.
As you probably well know, back in 1969 when the first NASA spacecraft approached the moon and a man (specifically Neil Armstrong) stepped onto its dusty surface, he was wearing a best UK sale replica Omega on his wrist. Well, technically speaking it was not on his wrist as Armstrong had left his watch in a lunar module, so it was Buzz Aldrin’s Speedmaster that ended up being the first watch ever worn on the moon.
History was made and an icon was born. Perhaps even more so in 1970, when a Speedmaster flew to space aboard Apollo 13. And if it hadn’t been for the watch and its chronograph to help calculate the moon looping that became necessary following a technical accident, the mission would have probably ended in (more) drama.
Not only did a wrist-worn mechanical chronograph prove to be functional and useful, it also quickly became a cult object. A cult to which, funny enough, I was and am quite immune. But every rule has its exception as I found out.
Swiss movement fake Omega and Fratello Watches came out with their first #SpeedyTuesday Speedmaster replica back in 2017. This limited edition watch honored a group of true best replica Omega Speedmaster fans united under Fratello’s Speedy Tuesday initiative and sold out within few hours.
A year later, a second iteration of #SpeedyTuesday replica watches came to life. And this one sold out – all 2,012 pieces – even quicker, in under two hours! And one of these 2,012 watches is part of my personal collection. Maybe the most important part thus far.
