The stainless steel case (42.25mm) showed a lot of resemblance with the – in 1998 – introduced Speedmaster Professional X-33, except that the unique Omega Speedmaster Rattrapante replica watch has 3 pushers instead of 4 (X-33). Of course, the X-33’s case is made of titanium. The Speedmaster Rattrapante Chronometer was quite mind blowing at the time, at least to me it was. I loved the futuristic look & feel to it, but it was by no means a cheap watch. It was available with a leather strap and a stainless steel bracelet that is identical to the regular Moonwatch bracelet.
The cool Omega Speedmaster replica watch isn’t a very pretty watch, like the X-33, but it has something nice to it with the split-second complication and the bulky X-33 type case. These watches are quite rare. The Omega replica watch should come with the black leather box that was often used for limited and special editions. There is also a silver dial version of the Speedmaster Rattrapante (3540.30) and for the Italian market there was a blue dial as well.
Whether it will become collectible is difficult to tell. The Omega Speedmaster Rattrapante best replica watch might be the same as with the Speedmaster 125 and X-33 for example. Nice watches that are being appreciated by Speedmaster collectors, but those interested in the Moonwatch only, probably will ignore it. So even though the Speedmaster 125, X-33 and this Speedmaster Rattrapante models are rarely seen in the flesh.
