When I think of the AAA perfect replica Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch watches, the first thing that comes to mind is the fact it was by far the hottest, most buzzed-about watch of 2023. The second thing that pops up is that when the MoonSwatch debuted, someone at the front of the line at London’s Carnaby Street location was held at knifepoint until they gave up their spot. That’s the type of demand that the MoonSwatch garnered upon its debut in March 2022—and which has persisted ever since. Omega and Swatch have fanned the flames with special-edition “Mission to Moonshine Gold” pieces that are only available for very limited spurts in select cities. But I got the feeling the availability of the 11 original Swiss made fake Omega MoonSwatch watches flavors was starting to shift in collectors’ favor.
The MoonSwatch, despite all the initial difficulty in acquiring one, is not a limited-edition model. These pieces are intended to be a mainstay, and Omega and Swatch still intend to put the pieces up for sale online…one day. When I called one Swatch store, the automated message that played stated that the high quality replica Omega MoonSwatches watches aren’t available “for the time being for purchase online” (emphasis mine). While online sales don’t appear imminent, Swatch stores in America aren’t chronically sold out of the hit timepieces anymore. I called up nearly every MoonSwatch stockist in America (there are 16, including 4 in New York City alone). Here’s what I discovered.
You—yes, you!—can walk in and buy a MoonSwatch now, provided you live near a Swatch store
Out of the 14 locations I called, 10 were firm on the fact that they had UK luxury copy Omega MoonSwatches watches in store and ready to go. No small feat considering the winding lines that were once a mainstay outside Swatch shops.
Two Swatch shops—the ones in Miami and Orlando—told me to call back later that day. Orlando did receive a shipment while Miami didn’t pick up any of my half-dozen follow up calls. That brings the total to 11 out of 14.
You can’t just buy any MoonSwatch, though
“We have all of them in stock,” the retail associate working the Bloomington, Minnesota shop inside the Mall of America told me. “Except [Mission to] Neptune, of course.”
This was a common theme: there are no Neptunes anywhere. The dark-and-light-blue variation of the MoonSwatch is by far the most popular. This version of the cheap Omega replica watches sells for an average of $1,197 on StockX. The next closest out of the original colorways is the Mission to the Moon, which sells for an average of $414.
The other most commonly sold-out versions were the Missions to the Moon, which most closely mirrors the original top Omega Speedmaster fake watches with a black dial and bezel, and the frosty gray Mercury.
There are still lines!
The most fascinating call I had was with a retail associate in Orlando. In the morning, they told me to call back because they expected to get a shipment. When I called back in the afternoon (around 4pm EST), the woman on the phone told me the wholesale replica Omega MoonSwatches watches touched down in the store at roughly 2pm!
So you have MoonSwatches? I asked.
“Yes, we do, but…” she said before pausing. “How far are you?”
About half an hour, I lied.
“They will be gone by the time you get here, probably,” she replied.
It’s not all bad news, though. She said to try again tomorrow because shipments come in pretty consistently. However, there is “always” a line, she said.
More than a year and change after the original release, people are still consistently lining up for 1:1 2023 super clone Omega MoonSwatches watches. That’s incredible.
What’s going on in Texas?
Only two shops in the continental U.S. were fully cleared out of Swiss movements replica Omega MoonSwatches watches with no remedy in sight: the locations in Houston and Dallas. The other store that doesn’t sound like it will be able to quench your MoonSwatch thirst anytime soon? Honolulu, Hawaii.
Deliveries are constantly coming in
When I called Swatch stores, there was always a promise of a new delivery. One came in that morning! They’re expecting one soon! They might get one tomorrow! It sounds like Omega and Swatch are constantly replenishing the supplies. So even if your local Swatch shop is sold out today, it’s quite possible they won’t be tomorrow.
