Formula 1 has seen huge growth in the US market over the past few years and has made household names out of drivers like Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. But, for those who have been longtime fans, any conversation about the best drivers of all time will include a chat about Michael Schumacher. In his era, he was the Michael Jordan of Formula 1, and Schumacher won most of his seven world championship titles while driving for the legendary Scuderia Ferrari.
Released in 1996, the same year Schumacher joined the Ferrari Marlboro team, this perfect replica Omega UK represented the brand’s last jump into motorsports with the watch built originally for the track – the Speedmaster. For this outing, Swiss made fake Omega used the slightly smaller automatic Speedmaster Reduced as the canvas for these special editions. At 39mm, the case keeps the signature elements of the full-sized Speedy but is a little more universally wrist-friendly. To go along with the Ferrari theme, the dial and sub-dials are in red, while three of the hands are in yellow.
This best 1:1 replica Omega 3510.61.00 was produced alongside another version that had the inverse red and yellow colors along with a similar blue model that was made for Cart racing – an American open-wheeled race series that later merged with Indycar.
These aaa quality replica Omega Speedmaster Reduced Michael Schumacher editions have become stand-out watches in the Omega neo-vintage market, representing great value for the money, a nice use of color, and a connection to a legend of Formula 1. Produced from 1996-1999, not many were made, and they straddle the line between the use of tritium and LumiNova. This high quality fake Omega UK is part of the latter two years with the more recent LumiNova used for the lume on the hands and markers.
