Cheap Replica Omega Speedmaster ‘Silver Snoopy Award’ 50th Anniversary

Are cartoon-themed replica watches the same as the joker in the office with the cringe-worthy Marvin the Martian silk tie on a Tuesday? I think not. In fact, some of the best examples of cartoon characters, whether they be Disney or Anime, are so discreet that you barely notice them. And in the context of a watch world that often takes itself way too seriously, who can resist the smile-a-minute cheer of a simple Disney watch with Mickey showing the time with his gloved hands?

We’ll start with the more downplayed yet totally unexpected 2020 knock-out by Snoopy, the top dog (sorry) of the horological cartoon world. Fresh and unlimited, this blue and silvery white version of the classic Speedy prompted Nick to proclaim it the feel-good blue ceramic bezel Omega copy watch of the year. If it wasn’t, then it did a damn good job of trying.

The classic 42mm fake Omega Speedmaster case with its moon watch accoutrements, is a triumph of balanced vintage functionality. In this version, the fresh blue of its indices, slim sword hands and sub-registers shows just how much difference the injection of a colour can make. But while there’s a certain charm to the tiny Snoopy tap-dancing within the running seconds at 9, this pales when you turn the watch around for what is nothing short of a mechanical miniature theatre act unfolding.

President Biden Wore His Trusted Swiss Luxury Fake Omega Seamaster During His Pitch for the American Families Plan

As a true watch lover, President Joe Biden knows that different situations call for different timepieces. So, when it came time to pitch his new infrastructure proposal in Virginia he turned to his trusty Swiss-made fake Omega Seamaster.

The understated Swiss timepiece is what the Commander-in-Chief wore while talking to the Old Dominion’s residents about his $1.8 trillion American Families Plan on Monday afternoon. The watch is far from the most dazzling piece in his collection, but it’s one he’s turned to in the past when he needed to get things done.
The blue ceramic bezel copy Omega Seamaster may not be as iconic as the brand’s Speedmaster Moonwatch, but it’s an impressive timepiece nonetheless. Based on a photo posted by watch writer Nick Gould, it looks as if Biden’s watch is a luxury replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Ref. 2531.80.00.

This version, which is no longer in production, features a 41mm stainless-steel case topped with a blue bezel and a domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal above its elegant blue dial. It’s powered by the watchmaker’s Calibre 1120 self-winding mechanical movement, which has a power reserve of approximately 44 hours, and is water-resistant up to 300 meters. Rounding out the package is a five-link steel bracelet that gives it a classic, no-nonsense look.

It should come as no surprise to see an American president wearing an Omega. The Swiss brand and the Oval Office go way back; John F. Kennedy wore an 18-karat gold Ultra Thin to his inauguration in 1961. Before that decade was out, the watchmaker would be the first to reach the moon when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin wore the Speedmaster ST 105.012 onboard Apollo 11. In recent decades, presidents have steered clear of the brand, instead opting for slightly less glamorous brands, but Biden seems to be changing course with his cheap copy Omega Seamaster, which can currently be had for under $4,000.

Of course, Biden also knows there are times when a more elegant clone watch is necessary. For his first day in office, he showed up for work wearing a Rolex Datejust. Different day, different watch.
