The perfect UK sale replica Omega Speedmaster Mark II 145.014 has an interesting history. That alone would make this Mark II a worthy addition to any high-quality fake Omega Speedmaster collection. As you probably know, the models that high-quality fake Omega created for NASA in the past used the codename “Alaska”. This was done to avoid making other brands in the Swiss cities and villages blatantly aware of their collaboration, as even back then, people like to talk and gossip.
Many other Swiss made fake watches from best fake Omega UK online used codenames as well, often taking on the names of geographical locations for watches and bird names for movements. Omega set the Alaska Project in motion after the 105.003 was qualified by NASA for all manned space flight. In the first project, high-quality Omega replica decided they wanted to optimize the Speedmaster for use in space. Improving its resistance to extreme temperatures and temperature changes, for example. This explains the big red anodized aluminum outer case for the first Alaska Project watch.
The AAA best UK sale fake watch itself is made of titanium (a first in watchmaking) to keep it light and comfortable for the astronauts. Titanium is also less conductive than steel when it comes to temperature. Last but not least, there’s the white dial. Designed to reflect light, it’s better for the temperature of the watch and also much more legible. Long story short, NASA didn’t want to move forward with Omega’s proposal. The Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster 105.003, 105.012, and 145.012 did the job perfectly already and this costly redesign was deemed unnecessary.
In order to put the money Omega had spent on the Alaska Project prototypes to good use, some of the elements were used for a new Speedmaster. Meet the Speedmaster Mark II 145.014. The watch features a tonneau case that was inherited from the Alaska Project prototypes, a mineral crystal instead of Hesalite, and a tachymeter scale printed on the crystal. Inside, there’s chronograph caliber 861. A movement that perfect UK sale fake Omega also started to use for the Moonwatch (reference 145.022) and which became the successor to the column-wheel caliber 321. The best fake Omega Speedmaster Mark II 145.014 was available in two different variations, one with a black and white dial and one with a racing dial (pictured below).
This standard dial/racing dial variation was something that high-quality fake Omega also tried on the best replica Omega Speedmaster Professional watches back in those days. These have also become incredibly sought-after today (a modern version can also be found as a 2004 re-issue for the Japanese market). Both the normal “monochrome” dial and the racing dial, share the same reference number. The times when you could buy these watches for well under €1,000 are long gone (by at least a decade). You should expect them to come up for sale for €2,000 – 3,300, depending on their condition. You should also expect the version with a racing dial to be somewhat more expensive.
