US Swiss Fake Omega Speedmaster 50th Anniversary Silver Snoopy Commemorates Apollo Missions

The silver dial fake Omega Snoopy Speedmaster 50th Anniversary watch is the third in the highly collectible “Snoopy” series, and anyone who doesn’t have one yet will be happy to know that this one is not a limited edition. The small-seconds subdial depicts the lovable beagle from the cartoon strip “Peanuts” a motif that is commemorative of the Silver Snoopy Award presented by NASA astronauts “in appreciation’ for professionalism, dedication, and outstanding support that greatly enhanced space flight safety and mission success.” It is also a nod to the 50th anniversary of NASA’s most famous moon mission, the Apollo 13.


The story starts with the Apollo 10 mission, the first to reference the “Peanuts” comic strip. Its Command Module was named “Charlie Brown” and the Lunar Excursion Module was called “Snoopy” because its job was to snoop around for good landing sites for the next mission. Thereafter, NASA began using Snoopy as a mascot for its spaceflight safety initiative, and the Silver Snoopy Award, a silver pin, was given to NASA employees and contractors by astronauts to celebrate achievements related to mission success and human flight safety. The Omega Speedmaster replica with blue bezel refers to the 50th anniversary of the 1970 Apollo 13 mission, which went awry when one of the oxygen tanks in the Service Module exploded, damaging the Command Module. The astronauts had to use the Lunar Excursion Module to come home to earth, and to make that possible, they had to use their luxury copy Omega Speedmasters to time a critical, 14-second firing of the LEM’s rocket engine to correct their homeward trajectory. In 1970, Omega was given a Silver Snoopy Award to commemorate the Speedmaster’s role in the flight.
Omega introduced its first Snoopy Speedmaster in 2003, a limited edition of 5,441. It was followed by another commemorative Snoopy in 2015, limited to 1,970 pieces to mark the year of the Apollo 13 flight. Both are rarities now, and highly sought after by collectors. The new, best quality Omega fake watch piece is unlimited. Its 42mm case is steel, with blue accents on the hands, markers, subdials and bezel. It is priced at $9,600, and contains the METAS-certified caliber 3861.

The Legendary US AAA Quality Replica Panerai Luminor Slytech Daylight Belonging to Sylvester Stallone Sold At The Phillips New York December 2020 Auction

Actor Sylvester Stallone has long been known in collector communities for his watch taste centering around beefy timepieces. He is best known for helping Panerai replica reach its fame before Richemont (then Vendôme) acquired the brand in 1997.

Stallone wore a best quality replica Panerai Luminor in the Hollywood film Daylight, a watch that can justifiably be considered the most important Panerai wristwatch ever to come to auction. Here’s why.

Until it was re-launched in Florence in 1993, Officine Panerai was an Italian military brand. After that relaunch a rather curious thing happened: the very large, sporty, technical-looking watches hit a tipping point in more exclusive consumer circles – collector circles, really – swinging the prevalent watch fashion away from flat (often quartz) watches and kicking off a new trend in oversized timepieces.

Around 1995 this “newcomer” brand came to the attention of Stallone, who commissioned a model based on the Mare Nostrum, a first re-issue of the resuscitated cheap replica Panerai, and dubbed it the Slytech Submersible. This Slytech lacked the patented Panerai crown-locking device that its siblings possess, lending it a more conventional, though still very solid and definitely large, appearance.
Coinciding with the filming of 1996’s Daylight, Stallone commissioned a second model with the locking device that came to be called the Slytech Daylight (a Luminor model). And Swiss movement fake Panerai became a product placement legend, propelling a new appreciation for these timepieces among a wider public, which was then nurtured and facilitated by the brand’s clever CEO, Angelo Bonati.

“I did a film called Daylight and I wanted to wear a watch that no one had ever seen. I strapped this on my wrist that day and didn’t take it off until the end of filming,” Phillips reports Stallone as saying. Here, he consigns the watch in the original shape as was worn for filming on the same rare sharkskin strap, as well as with original box, straps, brass screwdriver, and signed studio card.

Stallone’s Panerai Luminor Slytech Daylight is Phillips’ lot 47.
