Let’s dig into the rich navy blue ceramic case of the Omega Blue Side of the Moon Moonphase. This is a watch that ticks so many boxes. Sporty? Duh, it’s a perfect Speedmaster replica. Dry and boring? Absolutely not, thanks to its intriguing blue ceramic case and astounding aventurine dial that makes you think you’re staring into space. Complicated? Definitely And well laid out across the dial – neatly packing in a moon phase, chronograph, calendar and running seconds complications.
AAA best fake Omega makes the most of the two registers with the sub-dial at three displaying both the elapsed minutes (larger hand) and hours (smaller hand) and at nine the sundial displays both the running seconds (small hand) and date (red crescent tipped hand). The moon phase disc is made of a patent pending blue enamel aventurine glass, with the moons made of Sedna Gold. Whether or not it’s your cup of tea, you have to respect the level of horology at play here – especially when you look at its co-axial column wheel chronograph movement via the caseback.
Well, that was a whirlwind. When the tournament was merely a concept, I had in mind that the showdown would be between two far-out high quality Omega Speedmaster replica watches. My bet was riding on the Speedy Tuesday II “Ultraman” and the eventual finalist, the Silver Snoopy Award 45th Anniversary. If I were to guess the reason, it would be the extraordinarily creative and comical designs that bridge our inner child and nostalgic adult.
My hopes for this clash were quickly dashed when the team picks came. RJ bagsied both these Speedmasters for his opening group. Mr. #SpeedyTuesday himself got greedy, in my opinion, but it did force some David Vs. Goliath battles in the second-round knockout stages.

None more so than my Group-B-winning First Omega in Space going head-to-head with the silver medal-winning Silver Snoopy. Silver for the Silver — quite a fitting position, if you think about it. It is a shame we didn’t have a gold-cased Speedy getting gold, but I digress. As we know, the FOiS did not prevail, but it put up one hell of a fight. Not only did the votes come in pretty regularly in favor of it, but many commenters also expressed their support in the quarterfinals. But in the end, it was the Calibre 321 “Ed White” that took the crown — truly deserved and Balázs fought its case valiantly in each stage. Possibly we could have seen this coming, as, to my recollection, the “Ed White” has won each poll it’s participated in… In the Sunday Morning Showdown column, the Calibre 321 bested the venerable Rolex Daytona. More recently, in RJ’s summation of his 2020 watch collection, the 321 also took the people’s vote by a landslide. In some way, I think RJ had an internal conflict as the “Ed White” is possibly his most worn and most loved watch of this year. But then again, the Speedmasters in this Speedy World Cup span nearly 60 years, so it was always an open battle between seniors and juniors.
Jorg and the Alaska Project 2008
After a long and hard battle, the Alaska Project 2008 had to concede to the Tintin in the end. Personally, I feel the battle deserved a different outcome but I always knew it was going to be difficult knowing how popular the Tintin is. However, for me, the Alaska Project 2008 remains one of the best conceptual limited edition Speedmasters ever released. But I also understand its critics mentioning the wearability and divisive aesthetic. It’s the one Speedmaster that is aesthetically the furthest removed from the familiar Speedmaster. And I like that about it, a lot. Looking at the tournament overall I am happy to see the copy Speedmaster 321 Ed White win it. I had a chance to visit Omega in Biel and witness the magic of the new 321 movement. The Ed White is truly something special. One other thing I want to point out is the lack of love for gold bracelet replica Omega Speedmaster. Robert-Jan and I both mentioned the fact that it was stunning to find out that his stunning Moonshine and my legendary Apollo XI 1969 didn’t make it past the group stages. We definitely need more love for the gold, people!
Omega will launch Speedmaster limited editions to commemorate Apollo 11’s successful landing on the moon every five year. It is exactly the mission makes the perfect Omega Speedmaster copy watches be named as moon watches. Three NASA astronauts wore the Speedmaster and the one Buzz Aldrin wore became the world’s first watch landing on the moon.

In 1970, the oxygen tank exploded during the Apollo 13 mission of landing on the moon, and the lives of astronauts were at risk.
