The Italian Job: Michael Caine, Michael Standing, and the best quality replica Omega Speedmaster
I came across a photograph of a lobby card from the film while browsing Getty Images. The photograph shown below is from the scene in the film where Caine utters the famous line “You’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!” to his co-star Michael Standing.
What stood out immediately to me was the recognizable copy Omega Speedmaster chronograph on Standing’s wrist. I realized that the photograph shown above was taken at a slightly different angle to the actual footage in the film, which did not allow a clear view of the watch on Standing’s wrist.
Yogi Berra and his gold bracelet fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual
When a famous person’s timepiece comes up for sale, in some cases there is no accompanying photograph showing the person wearing it, just a letter of provenance authenticating the watch.
This was the case back in 2017 when Heritage Auctions sold the Swiss made fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual with a special dial commemorating his team’s win of the 1956 World Series belonging to legendary New York Yankee Yogi Berra (1925-2015).
I found this photo from 1968 of Berra wearing the timepiece while having dinner with actress Angie Dickinson and her second husband, Burt Bacharach. You can easily see the watch’s distinctive bracelet on Berra’s wrist.
