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 On top, the hesalite glass has been replaced by a domed sapphire crystal, with the Omega Replica logo engraved in the centre.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 522.214.171.124.02.001 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.
The Omega Speedmaster Apollo 8 Replica Watches is very special – visually and mechanically.For this new of the Speedmaster, Omega uses the Dark Side of the Moon concept as a base, with the larger version of the Professional Moonwatch case, measuring 44.25mm. Even if it is larger, the shape is identical to the standard Moonwatch, with its asymmetrical case, protected crown and pushers and lyre lugs. Even the surfaces are finished in the same manner, with brushed case bands and a polished bevel on the side.
The full black theme is contrasted by several touches of yellow. Starting with the perforated leather strap, with yellow rubber on the Best Omega Replica Watches inside, but also on the dial, with the three chronograph hands in varnished yellow. This colour can also be found on the bezel and on the dial, the hour markers and the “Speedmaster” logo.
The back of the watch also reveals a special treatment, with entirely blackened bridges, offering a great contrast with the nickel-coated moving parts. Unique to this Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 are the engravings applied on both sides of the movement – obtained by a laser ablation process, for a realistic rendering of the lunar surface. Just like the Moon has two faces, this watch shows two different styles.
Luxury Fake WatchesThe case back, also in black ceramic, is engraved with “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE” – words said by Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell on board the Apollo 8 mission at the start of the crew’s pioneering orbit to the dark side of the moon.
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.
