In 1948, Omega created its first family of watches, the Replica Omega Seamaster– a collection that has gone on to become one of the cornerstones of Omega Watches, a collection comprising most of the diving instruments the brand has created so far.Omega has decided to treat us to two new watches, deeply inspired by the two first Seamaster watches.
The dial of both versions is domed and opaline white – slightly grained, with a silvery white colour. On both, we find the signature triangular polished hour indexes and Arabic numerals at each corner. On top, the hesalite glass has been replaced by a domed sapphire crystal, with the Omega Replica logo engraved in the centre. On the back, Omega chose its patented NAIAD LOCK case back, with sapphire crystal.
The second version is again an ode to one of the inaugural models, but this time it features a small seconds counter at 6 o’clock. Reference 5184.108.40.206.02.001 also has different hands and indexes – Omega Replica Watches non-luminous markers and hands, and leaf hands for the hours and minutes. It is powered by the in-house, Master-Chronometer calibre 8804 and is delivered with a brown leather strap.
On the back, calibres 8806 and 8804 share the same specifications. Both are modern self-winding movements with Fake Omega Watchesclassical specifications: co-axial escapement, METAS certification, anti-magnetic properties, silicon balance spring, Arabesque Geneva stripes decoration.
Seventy years down the line, the Omega Seamaster 1948 Replica Watches reappears to seduce a new generation of buyers with two very attractive models, one with central seconds and the other with a small seconds sub-dial. With their elegant 38mm cases, monochromatic silver dials, Spartan aesthetics and non-existent date window, the Seamaster 1948 models were definitely one of our favourites.
Launched in 1948 to coincide with Omega’s centenary, the Seamaster is Omega’s most veteran line in the current collection and the granddaddy of Omega Replica Watches powerful family of diving instruments -including the Seamaster Diver 300m Bond watch.
A SMALL CASE DOES NOT MEAN PUNY
With a diameter of 38mm, which is relatively small for today’s standards but much larger than the original, the Seamaster 1948 models are a dream come true for purists who have turned their backs on the trend for hockey puck wristwatch sizes. But do not be fooled into thinking that the AAA Replica Watchessmall diameter translates into a lightweight, delicate watch. On the contrary, the thick polished bezel, the solid straight lugs and the height of the case, endow the watch with a reassuring, substantial presence.
In all fairness, the dials are not entirely monochromatic and the minutes’ tracks, small seconds counter and inscriptions are black and there is even a touch of colour on the central seconds model. Unlike its ancestor with luminous radium dots on the hour markers, the Central Second model features touches ofOmega Seamaster Replica on the tips of the white gold hour markers and the Dauphine-style hour and minute hands that glow blue in the dark.
Both Replica Watches come with blue-grey leather straps with a vintage Omega logo on the buckle and a presentation box with an additional leather strap and a grey NATO strap.
