The perfect fake Omega Speedmaster Chrono Chime (ref 5188.8.131.52.03.001), which adapts the shape of the CK 2998 into a 45mm Speedmaster silhouette that is 17.37mm thick and features a gorgeous aventurine dial and bezel which play host to a two-register chronograph with the 15-minute totalizer at three o’clock.

Like its old-school sibling, luxury fake Omega Speedmaster Chrono Chime has the same rose engine-turned-guilloche finishing for the sub-dials. With the included Sedna Gold bracelet, the Speedmaster Chrono Chime weighs a whopping 326 grams. While neither watches are specifically limited, both are numbered editions and Swiss made replica Omega has stated that production will be limited to just a handful of models per year.
As is often the case with minute repeaters, both come with a special display stand that is meant to amplify the sound of the chimes. In this case, cheap super clone Omega UK has used production techniques from violin makers and spruce that is sourced from the Risoud Forest, on the border between France and Switzerland.
Specific pricing was not available at the time of the launch, but Swiss made replica Omega has said that we can expect something in the range of $450,000.
In hand and on wrist, both watches are big, heavy, and feel very special. Of the two, I definitely preferred the high quality fake Omega Speedmaster Chrono Chime, not only for its familiar good looks but also for the lovely combination of the aventurine dial and the guilloche finishing of the sub-dials (which I think looks fantastic). While certainly wide and quite thick, the weight left the most notable impression on my wrist from either model. If you don’t mind a large watch, I could see the 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster Chrono Chime being easy to wear once you’ve properly sized the tapering bracelet and entirely recalibrated for the raw heft of all that gold. Again, the movement alone has more than 45 grams of gold.
Aside from perhaps the Swiss movement replica Omega Speedmaster DNA on display, I think it’s safe to say that these are very niche offerings. As far as product goes, neither of the Chrono Chimes is likely to be in your future (or mine). That said, I think there might be a hint of something here for everyone, because not only does the new movement signal top quality fake Omega’s place within the hierarchy of Swatch, but also the brand’s raw ability to push the Co-Axial movement into the next generation. A 5 Hz Co-Ax would be pretty dang sweet in a Speedy or a Seamaster, no?
