This year Omega celebrated the 70th anniversary of one of its two emblematic collections, the Seamaster. Born in 1948, made waterproof thanks to the experience acquired with military watches but in a civilian and rather elegant way, the early Omega Seamaster Replica were still gentlemen’s watches – and not the robust, professional tools that most of us know today.
These watches were valued for their precision, water-resistance and reliability in combat. The end of the war left Omega Replica with great knowledge and experience in manufacturing precise, reliable, water-resistant timepieces. The brand responded to demand for a timepiece containing the same robust technology and reliability.
Launched in 1948, the Seamaster Fake Watches 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.
AAA Omega Replica Watches presented two versions: one with small seconds and one with central seconds. Differences can be seen on the minutes track, the shape of the hands and, of course, on the movement side – a similar base but with different gear trains due to the different seconds display. Originally crafted in steel and available in 1,948 pieces each, the collection is about to receive some new flagships, with highly exclusive platinum models.
Besides the change of material for the case, the evolutions of these new platinum editions of the Omega Seamaster Functional Copy Watches are subtle and the overall vintage-oriented design, so close to the original 1948 model, hasn’t been altered.
First and foremost, 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 Best 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 straps are also different, and are now made of green or brown alligator skin.
