Fake Omega Milestone 1941
Swiss made replica Omega’s ‘Museum Collection’ comprises historic Swiss movement replica watches plucked from the brand’s spectacular archive and re-issued in limited numbers. Museum Collection Number Nine brought back to life a classic military chronograph featuring both tachometer and telemeter scales (the latter used for judging the distance of exploded ordnance). The original measured a large-for-the-era 37.5mm, meaning the revived version was pretty accurate at just a half mil. bigger. Although the case was made from white gold instead of more rugged ‘Staybrite’ steel. As perfect fake Omega watches go, this is badass. If you can find one, expect to pay around £6,500.
Replica Omega Bullhead
Next, the lesser known luxury super clone Omega Bullhead chronometer. At 43mm square(ish) they’re pretty chunky and odd-ball looking. The Bullhead first appeared in 1969 and original versions are among the rarest of all 1:1 replica Omega chronographs – though they are not the most valuable, with mint condition examples available for around £10,000. The funky design, originally aimed at sports car drivers, was re-introduced in 2015 and two versions are currently kicking about for those who like to be different. £8,900.
