The Omega Seamaster replica is a collection that needs no introduction anymore. One of the most long-lasting ranges of the brand (created in 1948), the name Seamaster refers to many models.
In addition to the modern 300M Diver and to the technical PO 600m, Omega copy has also a vintage-inspired model, the Omega Seamaster 300 fake with blue dial, modelled after an iconic 1957 watch. And this collection, first seen in 2014, has recently been revamped.
If the look feels familiar, most parts are new, including a slimmer and slightly more compact case, a new bezel with an aluminium insert, a larger dial that now has a very cool sandwich construction and a cleaner look, and finally a Master Chronometer movement, the calibre 8912. The steel bracelet has been reworked too, with a thinner design and a new clasp, and a vintage leather strap is also available. The 41mm Omega fake watch comes in steel with a black or blue dial, and also in a rather surprising but attractive “Bronze Gold” alloy, with dark brown dial/bezel. All the details can be found in our hands-on article here. Quick facts: 41mm diameter x 13.85mm height – stainless steel – 300m water-resistant – sandwich black of blue dial with lower plate covered in vintage Super-LumiNova – Omega calibre 8912, in-house, Master Chronometer certified, 3.5Hz, 60h power reserve – stainless steel bracelet with extendable foldover clasp with fine adjustment, or leather strap with pin buckle – ref. 126.96.36.199.01.001 or 188.8.131.52.03.001 – EUR 6,100 on strap, EUR 6,400 on steel
Military replica watches are plenty cool for their utilitarian design, hard use case and often limited production, but they’re not the only subset of horological wares deserving of historical interest.
The high-end replica Omega Suveran (“Sovereign” in Swedish) is one such watch that deserves a closer look by the collector community — and indeed, anyone with a glancing interest in the Second World War. This interesting model, produced by Omega exclusively for sale by the Swedish government, was used to partially fund the country’s economy during the war. That’s right: it’s a sort of like a horological equivalent to war bonds. Available in numerous dial configurations, the Suveran was housed in a roughly 35mm anti-magnetic stainless steel case with a screw down back, which bore either the “SUVERAN” signature in a startlingly modern typeface, or the words “ANTIMAGNETISK, VATTENTAT, STÖTSKYDDAD (“anti-magnetic, waterproof, shockproof”). Powered by the manually wound, 15-jewel Omega cal. 30T2 PC AM, a version of the vaulted 30T2 with the addition of Incabloc shock protection, it was a highly attractive, simple workhorse of a watch. Different dial designs included black, military-style faces with blocky Arabic numerals; white dials with Roman numerals and a dressier aspect; black and white “tuxedo” dials; and numerous others. (They would, of course, have featured radium on luminous models.) Most luxury Omega replica watch seemed to have featured pencil hands, though perhaps a few used leaf hands. All featured a sub-seconds display within a sub-register at 6 o’clock and shipped, most likely, on a plain leather strap. Most references have a ref. number of 2400-X (i.e. 2400-1; 2400-5, etc.) and a production date of between 1943 and 1945. While exact production quantities are unknown, production is certainly fairly limited considering the use case, which was exclusively for the Swedish government. Prices have certainly increased in the past several years with the increasing mania for both vintage and military copy watches, but the fact that you can obtain such a fascinating (and unique) bit of horological and WWII history for between $1,500 and $3,000 — that isn’t necessarily a military watches meant for soldering — is pretty darn cool, if you ask us.
If ever people needed a tack hammer to the head when it comes to the price of a watch, this is it. Seriously, the same folks behind the GameStop run-up must be behind the stainless steel case copy Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy. Now, I am not one of those haters who jump on Omega Forums to decry the latest Speedmaster LE. I find them fun, people enjoy them, and there’s a relative harmlessness to all the camaraderie that comes with owning a Speedy.
A price of 40 grand on the secondary market, though, has me thinking about pigs and hogs. You may recall that I truly enjoyed using one of these popular modern watches as a punching bag during the Speedmaster World Cup. Honestly, if this thing were made of precious metal, it would start to make more sense. If it had an upgraded movement, maybe I’d start to understand. As it stands, though, this silver dial Omega replica watch “limited” edition of 1,970 pieces just feels off and that’s before I start making cartoon jokes.
Or you could buy: Honestly, with 40 grand you could buy a lot — including a pretty sweet late model 911. If you want to stay in watches, just buy the newest burgundy bezel copy Omega Speedmaster 3861 Moonwatch. Heck, you can buy both the Hesalite and the sapphire sandwich version and still have loads of cash. Buy a different Porsche and use that Speedy to time yourself on Starbucks runs each and every morning! Actually, what I would do (and I did) is to buy the 50th Anniversary Speedmaster in Moonshine gold. When and if it all comes tumbling down, you’re left with a gorgeous watch that’s made of something with tangible value. Here’s the crazy thing: in today’s market, you’d still have enough left over to buy a new steel Moonwatch.
Any fan of 1:1 OMEGA fake dive watches knows there’s only one true King of the Deep – the Ploprof.
This fan-favorite dive watch hits all the right notes with its entirely purpose-built design featuring 1,200 meters of water resistance and a unique bezel locking mechanism to make sure nothing disrupts your dive time. The Omega Seamaster Ploprof copy with titanium case has a much, much longer story and has served as a watch of serious fascination with nearly everyone that has come across it. One such individual is our own Cole Pennington, who just last year documented the watch’s one-of-a-kind history and development over time in this in-depth report.
The latest update to the 55 mm Omega copy watch, and the model we have here today, comes fully equipped with a Master Chronometer movement inside. It’s also cased entirety out of titanium, which ensures it wears light on the wrist even if its chunky 55mm × 48mm case dimensions are intended for maximum wrist presence. The subtle grey dial, orange accents, and titanium mesh bracelet are all sure to stick in your mind until you walk away with a Ploprof in your collection. It’s priced at $13,800 and can be purchased right here.
Exactly one year ago Omega copy introduced two modern sports watches — the ichimatsu-moyo-inspired Aqua Terra and the Planet Ocean with the red lollipop central seconds hand. Both models turned out to be a remarkable success even though Tokyo 2020 has been carried over to this year. Will this Omega Seamaster replica with blue ceramic bezel be as successful as its predecessors? Let’s see what it’s got going for it…
The inspiration behind the design Just like the Aqua Terra, the design of cheap copy Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020 is inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. However, instead of creating a chequered emblem design with the Olympic Games logo, this time Omega opted for the colors. One thing’s for sure — this was the right decision to make. Firstly, you can never go wrong with blue and white. Secondly, this concept feels a lot more timeless. That’s often a concern for would-be buyers of event-themed limited editions: beyond the significance of the moment, how will the piece age? Surely a watch needs to be attractive in its own right to be desirable. Sometimes these partnerships fail to appreciate that. Omega, however, is becoming the master of striking the right balance.
A stylish statement There is a reason heritage brands like Omega have been making different variations of the same dive watches for years. Combining a sporty look with supreme performance, the Swiss movement replica Omega Seamaster 300M is stylish, timeless, and functional. The essence of this commemorative Seamaster is not only the appearance but also its usability. The stainless steel case measures 42mm. A blue ceramic bezel with a white enamel diving scale is simultaneously sufficiently sporty and smart. To keep things fresh, Omega chose the polished white ceramic dial with laser-engraved waves. To add some contrast, the Seamster wordmark is in bright red, making this interpretation even more special. The polished-brushed nine-line bracelet makes an appearance and does a nice job of letting the dial steal the show. Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 Indeed, there’s a playfulness behind this Seamaster not only visible from the front. Overlaying the scratch-resistant sapphire display window, we find the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. The NAIAD locking system guarantees water resistance down to 300m and ensures that all the case back engravings remain correctly oriented.
The best quality copy Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020 is installed with the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. This in-house movement features a Co-Axial escapement and a silicon balance spring, resistant to magnetic influences of at least 15,000 gauss. Moreover, the Calibre 8800 can generate a power reserve of 55 hours. Price, availability, and a special box The Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020 reference 5184.108.40.206.04.001 has a retail price of CHF 5,200 Swiss Francs. Buyers will receive it with a special Olympic Games presentation box, much like the other Tokyo 2020 timepieces. According to super clone Omega, the new release is already available in Japan already. It will appear in boutiques worldwide toward the end of this month.
Released just hours after Nick Jonas’ fourth solo album dropped, the music video for Spaceman shows The Voice coach wandering through a barren terrain on another planet as he tries to figure out how to get home to his wife, Priyanka Chopra who appears in hologram form.
While the Speedmaster remains fake Omega’s most successful watch, specifically since the renewal of the collection recently, the other important pillar in the collection if, of course, the Seamaster. Past years have seen the brand focusing mostly on the Diver 300M. Yet, there’s another dive watch that deserves some attention, an even more powerful model with proper diving credentials, the Planet Ocean 600m. Recently, we got our hands on a model that we consider to be sort of a hidden gem in the collection… This is the cheap fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m 220.127.116.11.01 and we give a closer look at it.
Neither the concept of an Swiss movement replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT nor this actual watch is new. In fact, the concept came on the market in 2013 and the watch we’ll be looking at today has been launched in 2016. Still, it is part of these watches that somehow didn’t get the recognition it truly deserves. This traveller’s PO 600M is a watch that has A LOT to offer, whether regarding its specifications, its actual overall execution or its look, with a monochromatic colour scheme that is something we somehow need to love here. If today the PO 600M has been recently a bit neglected, due to the launch of the updated Diver 300M collection, it remains one of the most purposeful and comprehensive collections of high-end dive replica watches around, and that since its introduction in 2005. It is also a highly powerful watch, fully equipped for deep diving and built with impressive overall quality. Multiple variations have been created, including classic time-and-date models as well as chronographs, but the GMT only came in 2013, with this model. The combination of diving and traveller’s credentials is a classic for the industry and makes for some of the most practical models you can think of.
In 2016, the Omega copy introduced a whole new collection of Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m, including revised time-and-date models with new materials, colours and mechanics – namely, Master Chronometer movements – as well as this new edition of the GMT model. And while the brand has for long focussed on contrasting bright colours for the collection, this one plays on an opposite theme, being black and white… but striking nevertheless. The fundamentals of the collection are well present here and the Planet Ocean 600m GMT remains faithful to the basics; a 43.5mm case in stainless steel, typically Seamaster twisted “lyre” lugs, combination of brushed surfaces and polished bevels on the sides, robust case with screw-down crown, helium escape valve and external bezel and, as indicated by its name, a 600m water-resistance. The luxury fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m has always been a large watch, available in various sizes. Yet, even in its smaller editions, it is a watch with a strong wrist presence. This GMT edition, measuring over 43mm across and 17mm in height, is no exception to the rule. However… It is a watch that deserves more than just a look at the specification sheet. It needs to be tried on the wrist as its conception is clever, specifically when worn on the present strap. First of all, while the thickness can’t be forgotten, the case wears smaller than expected, with a 49mm lug-to-lug dimensions – which isn’t that large for such a watch – as the case is short. In addition to that, the way the bracelet is attached to the watch and wraps the wrist reinforce this sensation of compactness. All in all, the watch is certainly large but far more comfortable than expected – and mostly, very balanced and firmly in position. The strap, with its rubber lining covered with a black alligator insert, is closed by a folding clasp and its execution is really pleasant.
Regarding the rest of the habillage, the most obvious evolution between this Omega replica for sale and a classic time-and-date model is the bezel. No more unidirectional bezel with a 60-minute scale here but a bi-directional bezel with 24 very smooth clicks and a specific 24h insert. This is the main difference with another Planet Ocean 600m GMT, the “Deep Black”, which benefits from a larger diameter and use the extra space on the dial to relocate its 24h scale, thus keeping the 60-minute scale on the bezel. 2 watches with a slightly different vocation, the present version being slightly more “travel-focused”. The ceramic insert is made of black and white ceramics, with the white area classically representing daytime while the black part is devoted, you’ve guessed it, to night hours. The overall watch feels solid as a rock and the level of precision is, as you’d expect from Omega, very high. Under the sapphire crystal, the brand’s in-house Calibre 8906 is at centre stage. The base for this movement is well-known amongst Omega’s collection, being the 89xx – used in the Globemaster, the Aqua Terra 150m, the Constellation and more… This automatic movement, more powerful than the 8500 as featuring two barrels for a 60h power reserve, benefits from the entire lineup of technologies offered by Omega – co-axial escapement, METAS tests, anti-magnetic properties, silicon parts, free-sprung balance. As the 8906, it receives an additional GMT complication, which is adjusted exactly as it should, meaning that it is the local time that is adjusted by one-hour increments (and not the 24h hand, as in ETA or Sellita movements).
The only downside of the new era of perfect fake Speedmaster is the new era of pricing. When considering your first luxury watch, the Speedmaster has long been a safe suggestion. It’s iconic, historic and, previously, very well-priced considering its prestige and performance capabilities. The 1861 models initially were lower in price, and over time crept up to meet the current standing of the marketplace.
The 2021 Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster 3861 models are effectively a thousand dollars more expensive (at least in USD) than the previous models, which is leading some to cry foul. If I am being honest though, I think the increase is quite fair, all considering. These new co-axial powered models are effectively the middle ground between the previous generation and the revived 321 model. At this time, it would seem the 3861 powered models are replacing the 1861/3 models that came before them – but at the time of writing the sapphire sandwich 1861 Speedmasters are still available for purchase through Omega’s official channels while supplies last, and there will be no shortage of availability on the pre-owned market.
When I make my case for the price increase, I explain that the superior movement technology, bracelet, and subtle aesthetic changes to the dial and case go a long way to justifying the cost. Plus, considering the mass availability of these watches, I don’t see how this hike affects buyers who want 1861-powered Speedies – they’ll still be pretty easy to track down. Considering a Rolex Daytona is twice the price of the new Speedmaster, and chronographs from Breitling, Zenith, and others hover around this price point as well, it was fairly inevitable the price would eventually rise.
To sum it all up, the new watch definitely caters to the tastes and preferences of the brand’s most devoted followers and I applaud AAA quality fake Omega for making the external incremental changes we all wanted to see while also including the latest movement technology – previously only found in a much more expensive Apollo XI Moonshine watch that was a limited edition. Like the Grand Seiko dual impulse 9SA5 making its debut in steel in the SLGH003, I believe this is a real win for most buyers.
The first watch in this list is the best quality fake Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M with a green dial. The watch was officially released in February of this year, along with a blue dial version. Seeing the press images made it look like a decent addition to the Aqua Terra line-up. But that changed when Robert-Jan and I had a chance to check it from up close at a local AD. The beautiful green dial is the perfect addition to the Aqua Terra line-up. As Robert-Jan stated in his review of the watch, this is the Aqua Terra to go for! The 41 mm Omega replica watch offers everything you would need from a modern daily wearer. At 41mm, this is a perfect fit for many wrists. The watch is powered by the great Master Chronometer certified caliber 8900. It features an independent hour hand, date indication at 6 o’clock, is anti-magnetic up to 15,000 gauss, and has a power reserve of 60 hours.
Overall this is the perfect modern daily wearer. But the true star of the show is the green dial. That deep green color works perfectly in combination with that typical teak deck motif. The moment you put it on your wrist, it feels incredibly comfortable and looks stunning.
By adding this to the collection, Swiss movement replica Omega has created a winner. And if Santa reads it, he knows the one to get is the version on the bracelet. At €5,700, it is only €300 more expensive than the version with the black leather strap. That’s a no-brainer, really, because you will find it to be one of the best daily wearers out there for that money. And on a stainless steel bracelet, it looks the part as well.
It sold out within just a few moments on that first morning of Baselworld 2015. Of the Fratelli, only RJ managed to get a hold of one, and no, it is not a safe queen nor being babied. That watch is for wearing and has even been signed by an Apollo astronaut. First of all, I am very happy that the finals consist of these two watches. They are well-deserved spots, although, from a personal standpoint, I wouldn’t have minded seeing the Speedy Tuesday “Tribute to Alaska III” or the Speedy Tuesday “Ultraman” in the finals. Anyway, it is the Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award that was introduced in 2015. I am not surprised it is the Speedmaster ending up in the finals of this Speedmaster World Cup.
Let’s not talk about the connection between Snoopy and NASA again. If you’re unfamiliar with that, click here to catch up. I am getting a little bit tired of people who complain about this beagle on the dial of a Speedmaster. They’re either trolling or they don’t know about the history between NASA and this particular watchdog. Anyway, so far these complainers have been in the minority, so I am happy that common sense prevails.
Celebration of success Sure, the Speedmaster Calibre 321 “Ed White” is an amazing piece, and I am happy to own one, but it is a fairly normal Speedmaster. So far, the Calibre 321 has been even more unobtainable than the Snoopy ever was. That may sound strange, but Omega squeezed out 1,970 of these beautiful Snoopies with hand-made case backs in roughly 12 months, whereas the non-limited edition Calibre 321 is almost harder to get than a steel Daytona. Let’s all agree both Speedmasters here are nicer than any Daytona though. While the €14,000 Speedmaster Calibre 321 is a beautiful re-creation of an existing reference from the past, the fake Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award is a watch created from an almost blank canvas. To celebrate the success of the safe return of Apollo 13 and the prestigious NASA award Omega received for its role during that mission, Omega designed an amazing tribute!
I feel lucky that I’ve met with the designer of the black bezel fake Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award and I love the exquisite details she has put into this watch. Although the dog and text are a bit gimmicky on the dial, it is good fun and a sign you shouldn’t take yourself too seriously. Serious business is the case back though, amazing craftsmanship demonstrated with a sterling silver replica of the Snoopy lapel pin on a starry sky. This dark blue sky has been created from enamel with silver powder used for the stars.
What’s not to like here? Sure, you “need” a regular Moonwatch as well. A Speedmaster Professional with Hesalite crystal or even the new Speedmaster Calibre 321 “Ed White” will fit any collection and especially for that regular Speedmaster, there’s no excuse not to buy one. But this white dialed Snoopy, is a tribute version to the best chronograph ever made in combination with its successful role during Apollo 13. What’s not to like here? This steel case replica Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award has also been the starting point for many to become interested in collecting Speedmasters and its limited editions. For me, it has been good fun ever since and I am more than proud of my modest collection of Moonwatch models. This Silver Snoopy Award takes an important spot in my collection, not in the least place because it is so different from those black dialed Moonwatch variations. I know about the high resale value of this watch, but that shouldn’t play a role in choosing this watch as a winner of the Speedmaster World Cup. It is about the design, the background story of this Swiss replica watch, and its importance for the brand and Speedmaster collection in general.
