Yesterday, Swatch launched the Omega version. For only 250 francs. This caused long queues in front of the shops. all over the world. Collectors want to secure a rare piece. Because: an increase in value seems foolproof.
Watch fans in major cities of the world stand in front of Swatch stores from the early hours of the morning. in France and Italy. But also in Japan and Australia. In Zurich and at the airport. They only had one goal: to get one of the omega carriers. There was never a prestigious Omega for 250 francs. No wonder: in Zurich, the coveted pieces were sold out by 11:30 am.
up to 7,790 francs
Soon, the first copies were shown on Internet portals. At amazing prices. A Swiss seller wants 7,990 francs for his new watch. Smells of heavy work. Most Italian sellers are on eBay. They also offer cheap Omega for over €1,000. At least four times more expensive than it is now to buy in the store.
Luxury watch brand Omega has teamed up with Swatch – known for cheap watches – for a collection. The focus is on the legendary “Moonwatch”. Although both brands of watches belong to the Swatch Group, they cannot be different. This combination seems to drive watch fans crazy.
