Replica Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Collection – some nice, colourful, entry-level sports watches inspired by the Olympic Flag and vintage stopwatches.
The Seamaster watches. Crafted in gold, they are obviously more expensive than the models reviewed here. Still on the Olympic theme but with a totally different stylistic approach is the new Seamaster Olympic Games Collection: sporty fake omega watches, colourful, slightly vintage… Perhaps not the most appealing collection at first glance, we were pleasantly surprised when we got to see the pieces on the wrist.
Based on a classic Seamaster design – with lyre lugs and a flat bezel – the watches in the Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Collection are reasonably sized with a diameter of 39.5mm and feature several interesting and unprecedented features.TheOmega Seamaster Professional Replica case is nicelyshaped and features the signature polished bevel that runs from one lug to another. The large diameter of the case back is also surprising and covers almost the entire surface of the watch.
The most surprising element of all is the design of the dial itself. It feels familiar. Omega has decided to push the Olympic theme further by using a signature design that was used on vintage sports stopwatches manufactured by Omega – at a time when electronics didn’t exist. Based on a central black area, surrounded by a highly legible minute/second track, these dials offer a great contrast to the hands.
The central part includes large Arabic numerals, as well as a date window at 6 o’clock – a feature that will once again generate debate. To each his own. On the wrist, the relatively small diameter, as well as the contrasted dial make it a compact and comfortable watch that will suit just about every wrist size. The Luxury Fake Watches perforated leather straps are supple and complement the watch.
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.
Launched in 1948, the Omega Seamaster Fake was the first proper family of watches designed by Omega.Yet, they were given greater water-resistance than their military counterparts thanks to Omega’s novel use of the O-ring gasket technology. Two versions were available: a small seconds with leaf hands and a model with central seconds and dauphine hands.
Besides the change of material for the case, the evolutions of these new platinum editions of the Omega Seamaster 1948 Replica Watches are subtle and the overall vintage-oriented design, so close to the original 1948 model, hasn’t been altered.
The cases are now crafted from 950 Platinum – meaning a much denser watch on the wrist. However, the dimensions are the same: a 38mm diameter and 11.20mm or 11.65mm in height. The Omega Replica Watches small seconds version, due to the addition of a few wheels to transfer the seconds from the centre to the 6 o’clock position, is slightly thicker.
The cases of the platinum versions retain the same finishing, with mostly polished surfaces and brushed casebands. The Omega Replicastraps are also different, and are now made of green or brown alligator skin.
