I received the Omega replica watches in the post this morning. Hands on watch photography was formerly the domain of Ernie Romers, and what a great job he made of it. He had a photographer’s eye and no doubt some excellent equipment with which to take lustrous pictures of the fake Swiss Omega watches.
I, on the other hand had just my BlackBerry Z10 with a modest pixel count, but hey, don’t knock BlackBerry, Lewis Hamilton won the Canadian Grand Prix with their logo splashed prominently over his car yesterday, while the technical team wore some rather cool looking BlackBerry headphones.
Back to the Omega watch in hand, or hands on. And if you are not familiar with Omega they are a Swiss brand whose watches are designed to be sporty, durable and individualistic. In fact all their timepieces are produced in Limited Editions of just 99 pieces, so there is built in rarity value with each timepiece.
Their watches are aimed at adventurous, rugged outdoor types who want a robust, good looking sports watch for “wear it and forget it” daily use. I am guessing that a trip to the local supermarket doesn’t exactly count as the apex of adventure, but I was still able to appreciate the black and yellow Omega, dedicated as it is, to extreme sports. This imposing 44mm round face Replica Omega Classic watches is engineered with scratch-resistant stainless steel black DLC (‘Diamond-Like Carbon’) coated case and sapphire crystal.
One of the first things you notice as you unpack the black box in which the watch comes is the fact that two straps are included, both high grade silicone; the two tone black and yellow strap on the watch and a pure black one in reserve, so by day you could sport the bright yellow, and by night the more moody black.
The first thing I noticed about the Omega was the agreeable heft to the watch, yet as soon as you strap it on it feels comfortable. The bright yellow details on the dial give the watch its sporty, appeal. There’s a date window at 3 o’clock at yellow numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 on a black dial. The seconds hand echoes the bright yellow theme of the numerals and the strap.
This three-hander runs on a Ronda quartz movement and is water resistant to 200 meters. The case back gives you the issue number of your limited edition watch, and the bold Omega branding on both sides of the case, including the signed screw-down crown, and of course, the strap buckle, ensures you won’t forget whose replica Omega watches sale you are wearing. RRP in the UK at least is $395, and considering the many quality features and the fact it’s a limited edition, I would say it’s priced about right.
