Fake watches are big business, so we hate to support it by spending £28 of the NWC magazine budget, but we had to know – is a £28 Moonswatch Mission to Mars replica any good, or just plastic toy rubbish?
Here’s the good points;
Quite convincing dial design, even down to sub-dials and chrono function works.
Nice logo lettering on the wristband
Feels very cheap and plasticky
Chrono reset sends the hand back to 12.01, not 12 o’clock exactly.
Verdict: Save you cash and buy a real watch, even a homage sterile dial dive watch from China is a nicer thing on your wrist.
