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 Watches small 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 of Omega 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.
