I must admit to being skeptical that any real person ever actually gives their partner a luxury fake watch for Valentine’s Day. But that probably says more about me. After all, what’s wrong with a limp bunch of flowers hurriedly bought from the petrol station on the way from home? Or, if you’re going to really push the boat out, that small stuffed gorilla in red satin shorts with “I luv u” embroidered on the rear?
Still if I was going to splash out $20,300 AUD on this manufactured con of a holiday that turns romance into an obligation (not v.sexy), I would have to go for this perfect replica Omega Constellation Aventurine. The red dial is made of – you guessed it – Aventurine, a gemstone that offers a nice sparkle as it catches the light.
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, there are a bunch of them here, too, in the hour markers and bezel. The 29mm case of best 1:1 fake Omega is made from Sedna gold and stainless-steel, the latter bringing a neutral base that enables the more boisterous elements to shine.
But don’t be fooled by the superficial beauty. This is a serious AAA super clone watch that’s propelled by Omega’s Calibre 8700, a self-winding movement with a Co-Axial escapement that’s been approved by METAS to Certified Master Chronometer status. Props to Swiss movement fake Omega for ensuring the internals are just as impressive as the externals here. There’s more to this watch than just a pretty face.
