The De Ville was first launched as a subset of the Seamaster line, and was later spun off into its own collection in 1967. Designed not in Omega headquarters in Bienne but in Geneva, the De Ville was meant to be an urban watch and an alternative to the brand’s sportier models. Plenty of different designs were released over the years — both Seamaster variants and stand-alone models — and as these models weren’t among the brand’s high-end offerings to begin with, you can often find great deals on them today. (Just keep in mind that any vintage watch you nab for cheap on, say, eBay, will likely need a service.)
Omega made so damn many Seamasters, in so many dial and case configurations, that you’d be hard pressed to ever chance upon the same reference twice. Most are that charming 34mm size, which, contrary to what some folks might have you believe, you can indeed “get away with.” The best part? They all have in-house Omega movements, wonderful dial designs, and they’re affordable. Like, several hundred dollars-affordable (if you’re willing to take on the cost of a possible service) or sub-$1k to $3k for a piece from a reputable dealer — even in precious metals. Just beware of redials, as there are many of those floating around the ‘net.
The new chronograph from the Bienne-based watchmaker, born for skimming through water and dominating ocean depths, blends three different materials on its case and bracelet.
The link which connects the aquatic realm to Omega dates back to the 1930s. It was, in fact, in 1932 that the Bienne-based watchmaker imagined the Omega Marine, its 1st waterproof watch tested to depths of 73 m in Lake Geneva. In 1957, it was the Seamaster 300’s turn to see the light of day, followed by the Seamaster Professional 300M in 1993 and, finally, the Seamaster Planet Ocean in 2005. No need to tell you that it’s much more than a simple connection, it’s a real love affair which pursues its route today in particular with the introduction of the waterproof fake Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph.
To create this 44 mm-diameter watch, perfect replica Omega blended three different materials: SednaTM gold – an alloy which combines around 75% of gold and 25% of copper and palladium and offers an intense, long-lasting russet hue – for the unidirectional rotating bezel, the crown and the pushers, titanium – well-known for its lightness, its soundness, its corrosion-resistance and its gray color – for the caseband, and tantalum – a heavy, biocompatible transition metal with blue glints, which the brand has used since 1993 – for the bezel base and the central links of the bracelet.
On the blue ceramic dial decorated with a laser-engraved wave pattern, the luminescent, golden sword-shaped hands display the running hours and minutes whilst the seconds tick by in one of the chamfered counters at 9 o’clock. A direct drive tipped with a dot marks the chronograph seconds and powers the totalizer at 3 o’clock which groups together the minutes and hours. The ensemble is driven by the Master Chronometer-certified Swiss movement Omega 9900 automatic caliber which delivers a power reserve of 60 hours
When No Time to Die eventually hits theaters, he will be wearing a titanium case replica Omega Seamaster 300M with an in-house-developed self-winding movement. In this article, I will show you another Omega Seamaster James Bond watch. These are all used Seamaster limited editions that commemorate one of the James Bond movies or just celebrate James Bond.
Not all limited edition watches go berserk, but still, have proper demand for them by collectors. Some of the aaa quality replica Omega Seamaster James Bond watches are a perfect example of that. Some are highly sought after and fetch amazing prices. Others, however, are still available in the used watch market for a good price.
Seamaster Planet Ocean Quantum of Solace (€4,440)
I am not per definition a fan of all Omega watches, and that includes the Planet Ocean collection. But I also know many of you do like the Planet Ocean. A rugged divers watch, with totally different looks than the 300M or 300. This black ceramic bezel copy Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean James Bond commemorates the Quantum of Solace movie. It was the 22nd Bond movie and came out in 2008. It marked Daniel Craig’s second outing as James Bond. Although probably the least exalted of the Craig era, the film is a quietly competent bridge between the rollicking reawakening of Casino Royale and the operatic majestic of Skyfall.
This Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean reference 220.127.116.11.01.001 replica has a black textured dial (with “Quantum of Solace” located below the center). The texture is reminiscent of the grip of Bond’s Walther PPK gun. At the time, Omega still used the ETA base caliber 2500 movement (with Co-Axial escapement). On the case back, there’s the 007 logo, and the unique number of the watch (5,007 pieces produced). This watch is offered from the Czech Republic and comes in “like new” condition, with all boxes and paperwork.
When Omega released the redesigned top quality copy Omega Seamaster 300M collection in 2018, fans of the brand were treated to a special model composed of three metals: tantalum, titanium and their proprietary 18K Sedna gold.
Now, two years later, the brand is adding a chronograph complication to this eye-catching tri-metal combination, but it turns out that a similar timepiece was already introduced by the brand in 1993 as the reference 2296.80, where Omega used tantalum for the first time ever in one of their timepieces. You can imagine then, how avant-garde the replica watch for its time.
The new 2020 model uses grade 2 titanium for the majority of the timepiece making the new copy watch an extremely light and wearable chronograph watch to wear. The resistance of titanium to high temperatures and corrosion also make this timepiece the ultimate sports watch for any activity on land or underwater. The distinctive blue/grey hues of tantalum offer here a subtle but enjoyable contrast to the precious 18K Sedna gold material prominently sed on the bezel of this Seamaster 300M which is also adorned with a laser-ablated diving scale. Gold is also used on the bracelet links to mark a separation between tantalum and titanium. The dial is in polished blue ceramic featuring the distinctive laser-engraved “wave” pattern, which was reintroduced with the launch of the new Seamaster collection two years ago.
All in all, this new automatic movement fake Omega Seamaster 300M Chronograph Ti/Ta/Sedna Gold is a breathtaking and proud successor to the original 1993 model and elevates the watch with contemporary updates. It’s a bold look, displaying unabashedly Omega’s expertise in working with this rare, exotic material. The watch is 44mm in size and is powered by the brand’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9900, certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). The Swiss replica Rwatch is a numbered edition and features on the side of the case an 18K Sedna gold plate engraved with each watches’ unique number.
Retailing at CHF 18,100, the Sedna gold case fake Omega Seamaster 300M Chronograph Ti/Ta/Sedna Gold will hit Omega boutiques exclusively this fall.
