“Bond. James Bond”. It doesn’t get much more iconic than that. And although Rolex was there first, the Bond franchise is probably your initial thought when the classic best fake Omega Seamaster is mentioned. That’s some seriously good branding.
But the 1:1 replica Omega Seamaster is much more than simply the “Bond Watch”. Current model ranges under the larger Seamaster umbrella include the Swiss copy Omega Diver 300M, the Planet Ocean, the Aqua Terra, and miscellaneous others referred to as ‘Heritage’ models, which include such pieces as the original 300, the Railmaster, and the larger-than-life Ploprof.
And fair warning: the sheer number of choices can be overwhelming (luxury copy Omega loves their limited editions), but fear not. Although it’s impossible to mention every single Omega Seamaster replica for sale variant in this article (there are literally hundreds), I want to touch on the history of the model, its evolution, famous fans, and the ones I’d add to my watchbox.
Although Bond’s Diver 300M is probably the AAA fake Omega Seamaster most people think of, the model didn’t start out that way. In fact, you’d probably mistake the original cheap copy Omega Seamaster for a dress watch, and you’d be right. Sort of.
You see, the problem with most dress replica watches online made before the 1930s was that the slightest contact with water meant a trip to the watchmaker. See that sink in the kitchen? Don’t even look at it.
Around that same time (1932), Swiss movement fake Omega produced what they call the first commercially available water-resistant diving copy watch, the Marine, that utilised a slightly inelegant double-case design sealed with cork, but it worked. They also invented the precursor of what’s now known as a diver’s extension clasp, created to more easily adjust the strap over a bulky diving suit.
But high quality replica Omega UK recognized the advantages of a water-resistant dress watch, and in 1948, introduced the first Seamaster, designed like military fake watches online with an o-ring to seal out moisture, but in a much classier package. The benefits and wide appeal of a dress sport watch are clearly obvious, and the Seamaster really nailed the brief. And Swiss movement copy Omega recently paid tribute to the Seamaster’s origin story with a limited edition model, the 1948 Co-Axial Master Chronometer 38mm, a real looker, and a good sight more accurate and water-resistant than its great-grandfather.
Fast forward to 1957, and the introduction of the luxury fake Omega Seamaster 300, created to directly compete with other dive watches of the day, including the Submariner. Changes included a substantially larger 39mm case, long, flat lugs, and a black dial with glowing (and dangerous) radium for better visibility. The look is so classic, cheap replica Omega UK recently brought it back for their “Trilogy” reissue series, available in a boxed set along with the Railmaster and Speedmaster from the same era.
In the early 60s, the case design changed again, to the now-familiar twisted “lyre” lugs that have become an integral part of wholesale fake Omega’s design language. These versions have a strong association with the military and professional diving, and are therefore highly coveted, to the point where there are countless fakes to trip up the novice collector.
But the best Swiss replica Omega most of us think of when the Seamaster is mentioned is the top fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M, first introduced in 1993 with a high-profile series of endurance tests by noted explorers, adventurers, and athletes the world over. And in what became a defining point in the UK super clone Omega Seamaster’s history, EON Productions struck a deal to feature the new watch in the James Bond films, starting with the debut of Pierce Brosnan as 007 in 1995’s Goldeneye.
After that movie was a smash success (and with it, the now-legendary blue-dialled 300M), Omega replica Paypal UK never looked back. It’s been Q Branch’s standard issue for 007 since, with Daniel Craig’s Bond receiving some especially choice references over the years, including the big, bad copy Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M, the oh-so-tasteful 300 Co-axial Spectre model with its 12-hour bezel and black and grey-striped fabric strap, and the hard-as-nails No Time To Die titanium version with matching mesh bracelet.
