Hands-On with the Omega Replica Seamaster Diver 300m Watches

Most interesting was the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Chronograph Replica in titanium, tantalum and rose gold , one of the first, perhaps the second ever, wristwatch to use exotic tantalum.

Today it’s 42mm in diameter and 13.56mm high, good proportions that are large enough for a sports watch but not overly so. Unlike the original that had a dark blue dial, the new Seamaster Diver Fake Watch is more restrained, with the dial being a muted grey. Consequently, the two-tone combination doesn’t jump out quite as much as on a typical mixed metal watch.

The bulk of the Replica Watches is titanium, with the bezel and centre twin links of the bracelet in tantalum. The two metals are easier to differentiate: titanium is grey with a hint of yellow while tantalum is darker with a bluish tinge.

A hard metal with a high boiling point, tantalum’s more exotic applications include nuclear reactors and missiles. While the raw material is not expensive as gold or platinum is, tantalum is more difficult to machine, explaining why tantalum Cheap Replica Watches cost several orders of magnitude more.

The hour markers and hands are also 18k Sedna gold, while the Cheap Omega Replica dial is titanium and laser engraved with a wave pattern, a nod to the original of the 1990s, which had a stamped wave guilloche.

Unlike the ordinary versions of the Seamaster Diver, the tantalum and titanium edition has the waves in relief, standing raised and in contrast to the dark, frosted surface of the dial.

Notably, the Omega Replica Watches movement can be seen through the display back, which screws down in perfect alignment with the logo horizontal across the top. The secret is the Naiad Lock case back, which attaches to the case with a bayonet lock, rather than a conventional threaded rim.
