Omega Seamaster Ploprof 600M 166.077 Replica With Steel Case
I’ve been a longtime fan of the Omega Ploprof and added a modern one to my collection in 2019. The original Ploprof is still something I would love to add at some point as well. cheap fake Omega Seamaster PloProf 166.077 was introduced in 1971 and there are basically four different variations (or “Marks”) out there. Inside, you will find the Omega caliber 1002, a relatively commonly used movement by Omega at the time. Unfortunately, these watches have been tampered with a lot, in the best case by Omega themselves.
Many of these watches had movement swaps, dial swaps, etc. These vintage replica Omega watches were tool watches, so they encountered quite a bit of wear and tear. Don’t be sad if you find a nice one that has one of the service dials or has a swapped movement (over 60% seems to have a replaced movement, according to the guys of www.omegaploprof.com who did research with the help of the Omega Archives team), but just make sure you are aware of what you’re buying. Expect to pay around €7,500 for a nice one, and a bit north of that when the condition is very good.
Omega Speedmaster BA145.022-69 Fake With Gold Bracelet
I will promise you that this is the most expensive vintage Omega watch in this overview, but I want to have it in here regardless. Although the prices went up crazily in recent years, I think it is an important watch for a number of reasons. It is the first copy Omega Speedmaster Professional in gold. And then there’s the history of this watch. It was gifted to the then US President and Vice President, as well as all active Apollo astronauts at the time. The watch was technically identical to the steel Moonwatch, but with a gold case, dial and bracelet. The gold dial has these beautiful onyx hour markers and black hands that give a wonderful contrast to the dial.
The gold bezel has this famous burgundy inlay, resulting in a unique look. Only 1,014 pieces were made of this watch, between 1969 and 1973. The ones that were gifted to astronauts and officials had a special and personal engraving; the ones that were offered on the market had the “First Watch Worn on the Moon” engraving instead. The interesting thing about these watches is that today, these Omega BA145.022-69 clone watches for sale can look so different from one another. It is almost like they age a bit differently, despite being the same watches. Inside is the caliber 861 movement, which was used in the other Moonwatches as well. Prices heavily depend on the condition of the BA145.022-69, but are very often north of $50,000.
