Speedy Tuesday - Speedmaster Geneva Auction ResultsLast week was an important one for watch collectors and enthusiasts. Perhaps furthermore investors, replica rolex I will add. We've seen (or learned about) a few of the connection between the Rolex 6062 (5mio USD) and Rolex Daytona 6263 3.7mio USD) by way of example. It is possible to debate the 'hot air' in these prices, but someone paid these amounts therefore it is as real as it gets. But what in regards to the Omega Speedmaster replica watches we wrote about recently, that were auctioned through Antiquorum and Christie's. What i'm saying is the skeleton Speedmaster in gold and the two gold 1980 Speedmaster Professional Apollo XI pieces.Auction ResultsLet's begin with the piece that was skeletonized by no-one else than Armin Strom: the Speedmaster Jubilee 27 Chro C12 reference 3696.50 that celebrated the 50th anniversary with the 27 Chro C12 movement (which afterwards became caliber 321, no optical differences) in 1992. Antiquorum estimated this watch between 20.000 and 30.000 Swiss Francs, but the effect can result in 52.500 Swiss Francs (including premium). Only 50 pieces were created on this gold version (there have been also other commemorative models for the very same anniversary). An infrequent piece and also the price seems to be fair within the collector's world. Gold Speedmaster Professional models are rare anyway, and this skeleton version combines the task of Strom with all the Moonwatch heritage. My guess is the gold Speedmaster Professional replica watches can be very popular with time (like we have seen with Daytonas from Rolex) and gain more appreciation by collectors. Friend from the show and our periodical auction reporter Sacha Davidoff took the photo below in the watch, days prior to auction was held.Next include the Speedmaster Professional replica watches auctioned by Christie's. I already briefly mentioned both the gold pieces, one inch yellow gold (numbered edition of 300 pieces) and another in white gold (numbered edition of 20 pieces). It is just a watch that's introduced in 1980 to commemorate the Apollo XI Moonlanding and the re-qualification from the Speedmaster Professional for the Space Shuttle program. I sometimes refer to the gold model as the "Stafford" Speedmaster as Gen. Thomas P. Stafford would wear this specific watch quite often. They have No.A217 as his personal watch (see below a picture of his watch). The other Speedmaster that Christie's auctioned will be the Speedmaster Apollo XI from 1985 that's limited to 1000 pieces only and it was in truth the first stainless-steel Speedmaster to use a display back.The stainless-steel Speedmaster Professional 345.0808 fetched 10.625 Swiss Francs, including buyers premium. That may sound like a lot for any 1980s Speedmaster in stainless, nonetheless it is included with box and papers. This watch commemorated the 20th anniversary with the qualification by NASA (1965). Later on, Omega made other limited runs with this watch also with a slightly different caseback.You can also find both gold replica watches, reference BA345.0802 (gold) and BC345.0802 (white gold). Both replica watches were described at length last year on Fratello Watches (just click here). I always was under the impression there were 300 models in total, of which 20 were the white gold or platinum edition and 280 were in gold. That indicates the yellow gold models began with the A021 number. Only yesterday I found out it's not true, there are platnium Speedmaster 345.0802 models that have a very unique number below A021.Anyway replica moon phase watch , the yellow gold model (numbered (A)031) fetched 30.000 Swiss Francs including buyers premium. Which is considerably just for this model, that normally will cost you dramatically reduced, however is full of box and papers as well as the specific letter from Thomas P. Stafford and Takes space shuttle program 'brochure'. This watch isn't as rare as being the gold skeleton Speedmaster or perhaps the white gold edition needless to say, tag heuer with diamonds watches however much rarer as opposed to Apollo XI 1969 model with the burgundy bezel. That you normally fetches a lot more than this platnium piece, mainly because it contains the heritage from the astronauts (all Apollo astronauts received one) plus the US president at that time (Nixon refused to adopt a very expensive gift).Image by Herbert MayerThe white gold edition, BC345.0802 simply 20 made provides the unique number A04 and i also expected it to do very well in the auction. This watch gets the same specifications because the gold edition, with all the rare caliber 861L (L symbolizes luxury finish) plus the typical inscription around the caseback. This Speedmaster Professional BC345.0802 is finished with box and certificate and fetched a stunning 87.500 Swiss Francs including buyers premium. I have been previously watching the auction via the live connection i noticed all three replica watches went to Australia. I really hope it does not take same buyer, so he'll possess a nice trio of pieces (all 'sapphire caseback' firsts) that correspond to the other. Especially the white and yellow gold ones are very rare to own together.Does these results mean these will be the average going prices of these pieces? Nah, I'm not really entirely convinced this. What it did do, is raise more awareness of these rare replica watches that will easily be reflected within the going prices available on the market. Where the gold 'Stafford' pieces were traded for approximately 10.000 - 12.000 Euro (without box and papers), they could fetch a little more now due to awareness this guide people recognize that they are actually quite rare.I recently hope that this prices won't go as crazy as whatever we are seeing with Rolex. It could result in the time of the Speedmaster collector tougher than necessary. Also less fun, I might add. The beauty with the Speedmaster is that you may still source a pleasant vintage 1970s piece intended for 5000 Euro, the cost of a fresh Moonwatch. That said, the increase in volume of fans and also the interest in all-original (quality) pieces is now being reflected in today's pricing.
