Ryan Reynolds may be one of the funniest guys on social media, as well as the blueprint for a working superhero-cum-father of three, but he’s also quite the watch collector.
Up his sleeve he boasts a Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Grigio Speciale, Panerai Luminor Marina, Piaget Altiplano Scrimshaw and Cartier Roadster Chronograph. But one wristwatch that stands out the most to us is his black dial fake Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon, which we reckon you don’t even need to be a multimillion-dollar-earning actor or have a Twitter following of more than 16.6 million to pull off.
The watch in question is just another in copy Omega’s line of space-themed timepieces, which pays homage to the brand being the first to have placed one on the moon (Buzz Aldrin wore a Speedmaster when he walked on the moon in 1969).
Reynolds’ own all-black ultra-chic wrist-gear references the dark side of the moon (you know, the side we never see), as well as that successful 1969 Apollo 11 mission, and was made using a single piece of black zirconium oxide ceramic, with Omega moving away from the typical gold and steel frames of previous Speedmasters. Inside, the Omega Speedmaster replica with black ceramic case features a Co-Axial Calibre 9300 and a rather impressive power reserve of 60 hours, which would be handy if you were to make it to the moon yourself.
The strap of the Swiss made copy Omega is made from – yep, you guessed it – black nylon and features a titanium clasp, while within the case the polished black ceramic dial features sub-dial rings, diamond-polished 18-carat white-gold hands, a polished rhodium-plated seconds hand with a red tip, and 18-carat white-gold applied indexes.
Forget acting, a watch like that could earn Ryan Reynolds (and you) a place in Elon Musk’s SpaceX’s squadron.
