The Omega Seamaster Replica is no slouch in the dive watch category, even though it’s often overshadowed by the Rolex Submariner. That said, it has been the go-to watch for 007 himself , and this pop culture fame has given the piece a significant boost in mainstream popularity.
Though other Omega Seamaster Replica Watcheshave since been adopted by Bond over the years, the ‘icon reference’ is the classic and compact Seamaster Diver 300m 2531.80. This 41mm blue wave dial has evolved into different references over the years, but its basic construction has remained relatively intact.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph
When picking a Fake Omega Planet Ocean to kick this list off, going with this 45.5mm titanium-cased beast of a chronograph was an easy choice. The combination of a matte light grey dial and orange accents paired with a matching grey and orange rubber strap works exceptionally well.
At a functional level, this piece is also rock-solid, asOmega Replica was able to maintain the standard 600m of water resistance on it even though it is fitted with a chronograph complication. While it is a standard practice on most watches to never operate the chronograph features underwater, newer Omega Seamaster chronograph pushers can actually be operated at depth.
Omega Seamaster 300
We know that a black dialed version of this Seamaster 300m was featured in Spectre, but that reference is a far enough cry from this sleek 2015 release, as it features a 12-hour bezel, a different color profile, and it is crafted from different materials.
The Omega Seamaster 300 Replica is offered in a variety of metals, with this blue dial/bezel example being made in titanium and fitted with a ceramic ‘Liquidmetal’ bezel. While the style of font and use of beige-colored lume on the hands and indices give the piece a very vintage-leaning aesthetic, its automatic Caliber 8400 Co-Axial chronometer movement makes it properly modern in terms of accuracy and reliability.
On the dial of the Omega Replica watch, we find applied, trapezoidal indices for the hour markers, with small, printed marks in between each for the minutes. Toward the bottom of the face, the trapezoidal shape is also used for a beveled date window at 6 o’clock, while an applied Omega logo rests at the 12 o’clock position with “Constellation” script just below it.
At the center are two alpha-shaped hands for the hour and minute and a simple pointer for the seconds, while just below the hands’ axis are the Replica “Co-Axial Chronometer” designation for the watch’s movement and a small applied star, which is subtle nod to the watch’s galactic name.
The steel and two-tone models use the Caliber 8800, while the all-gold models opt for the Caliber 8801, the only difference being that the 8801 features a matching gold rotor compared to the steel one used on the 8800.
The latest iteration of theOmega Constellation Replica brings the series into the modern age, boasting a somewhat sportier look than that of its predecessors in the historic collection, which have more often opted towards a more delicate and formal style. Among the modern updates, we see the larger case diameter and thickness, which gives the watch a more durable look.
To place the Constellation collection further in context, the series is the brand’s second-oldest continuously produced collection, after the Seamaster which first launched in 1948, and a full five years older than the Speedmaster, which launched in 1957. While the collection both today and historically has often been overshadowed by these two iconic series and their many different iterations, theOmega Replica nonetheless still maintains an important part in the brand’s modern portfolio, balancing dressy and sporty elements for a watch that is distinctive, both for Omega and in the wider market.
The new Replica Constellation 39mm Gents’ collection looks more mature, compared to its predecessors. The diversity of dials also makes it interesting.
Omega did not just send me any Constellation 39mm, but one in 18-karat Sedna gold. This is Omega Replica own rose gold alloy and it, of course, has a softer tone to it than yellow gold. This particular Omega Constellation reference 126.96.36.199.03.001 comes on an alligator strap with 18-karat Sedna gold folding clasp.
The first because of the typical shape of the case, with its half-moons and the claws on the bezel. While the claws had the function of pressing on the crystal on the first generation, it later became merely a design feature as the bezel wasn’t covered anymore by the sapphire crystal. And it makes me think of my C-shaped Omega Constellation Fake Watch, because of the silk dial. This dial is not only available in the Sedna gold models, but also for the stainless steel and bicolor variations.
The Omega Constellation 39mm Replica Watch has little to do with these vintage models. It is a modern watch, both from a production perspective as well as from a design perspective. It features the latest generation of Omega’s in-house movements.
The very first Copy Omega Constellation Manhattan measured just 6.5mm in thick. Since then, they’ve only become thicker. The Constellation is not really considered a dress watch, so it doesn’t need to be ultra-thin, but it also shouldn’t have the thickness of a sports watch.
