In 2003, AAA replica Omega UK launched its first Silver Snoopy Award commemorative Speedmaster, the Reference 3578.51.00, a limited edition of 5,441 pieces. This timepiece was basically a perfect fake Omega Speedmaster Professional made special with badging of Snoopy wearing a light blue space suit on a dark blue background with stars and the words “eyes on the stars” found both on the running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock as well as on the case back.
Fans of luxury replica Omega, the comic character, or fans of space travel in general had to wait until 2015, the 45th anniversary of Apollo 13, to see another commemorative release of a Silver Snoopy Award Speedmaster; the 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster reference 3184.108.40.206.04.003. This rarer offering was strictly limited to 1,970 pieces.
This time, the Swiss movement replica Omega was crafted with a white dial with a SuperLuminova-coated dreaming snoopy in the running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock attached to a phylactery in which one can read “failure is not an option;” a phrase directly associated with the Apollo 13 mission.
In addition to that, a small inscription between 0 and 14 seconds asks: “WHAT COULD YOU DO IN 14 SECONDS?” In order to make the watch easy to read at night, the hour markers, as well as the tachymetric bezel, were fitted with colossal amounts of lume, more than the cheap fake Omega Speedmaster had ever carried before. Last but not least, on the case back, a 925 silver Snoopy medallion is surrounded by dark blue enamel with sprinkled silver powder on each individual case back.
This work was done by hand, making each watch even more unique. The best quality replica Omega UK also came with a 925 silver lapel pin of the famous beagle.
In 2020, aficionados got to discover the latest iteration, of a Silver Snoopy Award Speedmaster, the reference 310.32.42.50.02.001. This time around, to the surprise of top super clone Omega fans, the watch was not launched as a limited edition.
In terms of aesthetics, it is very different from its predecessors: It carries a 925 silver dial with dark blue sub-dials and, at 9 o’clock, the sub-dial of the running seconds proudly carries a Silver Snoopy medallion. On the case back of the luxury fake Omega, things get even more exciting: a see-through aperture is not there to view the movement, but to see an animation that comes to life once the chronograph is launched. Indeed, one can see the earth spinning as well as Snoopy himself in his command module wearing his spacesuit “flying” around the case back at the rhythm of the Swiss copy Omega’s seconds hand.
