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 Replica straps are also different, and are now made of green or brown alligator skin.
