The inspiration behind the Swiss fake Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday 2 Ultraman was a limited edition Professional Speedmaster that was made for the Japanese market in 1968. Ordinary in most other details, that best replica Omega Speedmaster characterized by a bright orange chronograph second hand bears the nickname “Ultraman” in honor of an animated Japanese superhero.
Not many of the original luxury fake Omega were made, making it quite a collector’s gem on today’s market and fetching prices around the €50,000 mark. The re-edition of 2020 is slightly less rare, but nonetheless also sought after.
Just like with the first Speedy Tuesday limited edition of 2017 based on an Alaska Project III reference, AAA replica Omega UK and Fratello decided to loosely base the watch on an original but add a few twists. Thus, the bright orange chronograph second hand remains, and plenty of new little details were added to make quite an outstanding copy timepiece.
Orange, the main theme of the cheap replica watches‘ design, also appears on the bezel’s tachymeter scale, hour markers, “Swiss movement fake Omega Speedmaster” pad printing on the greyish dial, and the three-minute sector of the chronograph’s minute counter.
Why three minutes? Because that is the amount of time Ultraman could activate his superhero powers.
The dial is made of aluminum and characteristically designed using the symmetrical, clean, tricompax layout comprising three subdials at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The simplicity of the 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster’s dial has always been one of its perks, but in this Ultraman edition super clone Omega decided to spice things up a little.
Look closely and you will note something hiding in the subdial at 9 o’clock. Take an even closer look and the silhouette of Ultraman appears just under the interestingly shaped hand.
