Let’s play a word association game. When you hear the name “fake Omega,” what is the first thing that pops into your head? If you’re like me, it instantly conjures up thoughts of Speedmaster chronographs and space exploration. This is no small thanks to Swiss made fake Omega’s marketing prowess and (well-deserved) pride at being on the wrists of the men who boldly went where no man had gone before.
But it is at the other pinnacle of exploration where you will find the longest-running watch in best quality replica Omega’s vast catalogue: the Seamaster. And for another of my diving trips, I took the most classic yet ultra-accomplished model underwater, the 1:1 fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M.
First released way back in 1948, the AAA fake Omega Seamaster UK was Omega’s answer to the growing demand for a tough, everyday wristwatch. Based on the success and watchmaking know-how they honed making over 110,000 timepieces for the British military during World War II, the first cheap replica Omega Seamaster was a robust, do-it-all timepiece, with even better water resistance than its military forebears, thanks to the innovation of the rubber o-ring gasket to keep the elements out.
While these watches were sturdy, waterproof and more aesthetically suited to civilian life than their military predecessors, it wasn’t until 9 years later, in 1957, that high quality replica Omega released its first proper, civilian dive watch, complete with timing bezel and 200 metres of water resistance: the Omega Seamaster 300 copy for men. That watch gained its bona fides when it was used by Jacques Cousteau and his team on the CONSHELF II underwater habitat experiments in 1963. The rest, as they say, is history.
The perfect fake Omega Seamaster line has been in constant production, in many different varieties ever since. While it is probably most well-known to non-watch people as the timepiece worn by some bloke called James Bond, beginning with his portrayal by Pierce Brosnan and continuing until present, the luxury replica Omega Seamaster can be found in every configuration you can possibly think of; quartz or mechanical, men’s or women’s, square or circular, they have made them all.
The current lineup consists of the super clone Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, which is the modern version of that original, non-diving Seamaster; the Seamaster Planet Ocean collection, which is reserved for the chunkiest and most water-resistant dive watches of the line, the recently-launched Seamaster 300, a vintage re-edition of the iconic 1957 watch, and the watch we are looking at today, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M replica for men.
The UK wholesale copy Omega Seamaster Diver 300M line was revamped in 2018, upgrading it to an in-house, Master Chronometer-certified movement, with this white colourway following a year later in 2019. A bit of a sleeper hit, it has slowly gained popularity, especially in the enthusiast community, over the past few years. We are going to put this classic Omega Seamaster replica online through its paces, with a day of sailing and a day of diving, and see if it lives up to its provenance as a watch for all activities, maritime and otherwise. But first, let’s look over the details.
