In 2013, Omega Replica Seamaster unveiled an upgrade of the original Speedmaster of 1957. With its Co-Axial movement and classic design, the watch was an instant hit as it combined the best of both aesthetics and mechanics. This year, the brand has revisited the timepieces and created a new model that, while boasting several updated features, remains loyal to the style of the watch that has continued to be an icon in the industry for more than half a century.
The 41.5 mm stainless steel Speedmaster ’57 has a polished and brushed casebody that is complemented by its brushed bezel, which features the tachymeter scale that is at once associated with the chronographs in this legendary watch family. Protected by a box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is a black dial with white and beige transferred dial indications. Distinguishing this model from its 2013 counterpart are the recessed hour markers that are partially filled with “vintage“ Super-LumiNova that emits a green light.
Another design element that sets this timepiece apart from its latest predecessor but creates a tighter link to the Omega Replica Speedmaster original Speedmaster is the look of the hands. The polished facetted rhodium-plated central hour and minute hands have been created in the “Broad Arrow” style and are coated with Super-LumiNova. Alpha-shaped hands can be found in the small 60-minute and 12-hour recorder at 3 o’clock and the small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
This inspired timepiece is presented on either a brown leather strap with a polished and brushed stainless steel foldover clasp or OMEGA’s patented brushed and polished stainless steel screw-and-pin bracelet with a butterfly clasp. The Omega Replica Constellation Co-Axial calibre 9300 is visible through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback. The reliability and accuracy of this extraordinary mechanical movement is such that the Speedmaster ’57 is offered with a full four-year warranty. As with all the timepieces in the Speedmaster family, this watch is water resistant to 10 bar (100 metres / 330 feet).
With its sight set on the stars ever since it became the first Omega replica watches brand to step onto the moon, Omega continues to celebrate space exploration with the launch of the vintage-inspired Globemaster.
After resurfacing the very retro Seamaster Ploprof 1200M and celebrating the 1970 Apollo 13 mission with a Snopy Award watch, the brand is now introducing an elegant wrist replica watches that looks like it could have been picked up from the auction block. In a good way.
The 39-mm Replica Omega Globemaster harkens back to historic models by featuring the iconic pie-pan dial made famous by the Constellation models in 1952. Surrounding the dial and its central hour, minute, seconds hands, and date, is a fluted bezel. It’s a timeless design, and it looks brilliant on the wrist. But don’t be fooled. The Omega Globemaster represents the brand’s most advanced mechanical movement in its history.
In addition to having an independent lab measuring the performance of the watch in typical daily conditions (COSC), the new Omega Replica Globemaster also undergoes rigorous tests to ensure it functions properly when exposed to strong magnetic fields.
Omega’s reverence for precise performance is captured on the caseback, where an etching of an observatory cupola symbolizes Omega’s success in precision competitions from the last century, as well as its desire to reach new heights and explore uncharted territory in the field of mechanics.
The Omega Replica Globemaster is available in steel and yellow gold, as well as the brand developped Segna gold, and comes presented on a bracelet or leather strap, with prices starting around $7,700.
A few years ago, introduced a retro-styled version of its well-known Speedmaster chronograph watch, the Omega Replica Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Chronograph, named for the year of the first Speedmaster’s release and featuring that original model’s straight lugs that extend from the case and its familiar bracelet.
The 56-year-old Omega Speedmaster is known as the “moonwatch” by collectors because of its unique role as the wristwatch worn by NASA astronauts for all six lunar landings, even though the watch itself was developed more than a decade before human beings set foot on the moon. The Speedmaster ’57 adds several modern touches that distinguish it both aesthetically and technologically from its predecessor. The movement is Omega Replica Ladymatic’s co-axial Calibers 9300 (in the steel, titanium and two-tone steel/gold versions) and 9301 (in the 18k gold versions), which has a column-wheel chronograph incorporating both the 12-hour and 60-minute counter hands onto a single subdial.
This arrangement means that the chronograph hours and minutes can be read together intuitively, much like the hours and minutes on the main dial. It also allows for a modern redesign of the Speedmaster’s old tricompax dial design: there are now two subdials rather than three, with hours and minutes at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The date window occupies a window at 6 o’clock, while a center-mounted hand tallies chronograph seconds. Another hallmark of the movement’s design is that the two chronograph pushers function independently of each other, so there is not risk of inadvertently operating the chronograph mechanism. The brushed bezel displays the model’s traditional tachymeter scale. The 41.5-mm case is water-resistant to 100 meters.
Calibers 9300/9301 are also notable for their balance springs, which are etched from a wafer of non-magnetic silicon. According to Replica Omega Seamaster, these silicon balance springs help to deliver improved chronometric performance, and the company is so confident of this that it offers a full four-year warranty on each watch. The two movements, both of which boast Omega’s hallmark co-axial escapement, differ only in their level of decoration: Caliber 9301, which powers the gold models of the Speedmaster ’57, has a “luxury finish” that includes an 18k gold rotor and balance bridge.
Several variations of this vintage-styled timepiece are available, including models in both a yellow-gold or rose gold case. Each comes on either a matching bracelet or a leather strap — black for the rose-gold watch, brown for the yellow-gold, and each is offered with a black or silvery-white dial. The indices on both models are made of gold and coated with Super-LumiNova. Another version, in lightweight grade 5 titanium, has a white dial and blued hands and is available on a titanium bracelet or leather strap. There are also stainless steel Speedmaster ’57 models with a range of dial choices including black or blue PVD with rhodium-plated indices and silver-colored with gold applied indices. These models are also available on brown leather straps or steel bracelets. The bi-color steel and 18k gold versions (pictured, above and below) offer either a silvery-colored or black dial, paired with either a leather strap or a gold-and-steel two-tone bracelet.
While not as ingrained in pop culture as other Omega Replica Constellation watches like the Seamaster (now the go-to timepiece for Agent 007) or the Speedmaster (the legendary “Moonwatch”), the dressy De Ville line has nevertheless served as a stage for the introduction of some of the brand’s most important watchmaking innovations. It was in a De Ville that Omega introduced Caliber 2500 — the first movement outfitted with the co-axial escapement developed by Dr. George Daniels — in 1999. In 2007, the De Ville was the launching pad for the company’s first in-house movement, co-axial Caliber 8500/8501 — in a watch that also marked the debut of the exhibitionist Hour Vision case. More recently, Omega used the De Ville Hour Vision Annual Calendar for the debut of another technical innovation, its Si14 silicon balance spring.
The Omega De Ville Chronograph contains Omega’s Caliber 9300/9301, the chronograph version of the in-house movement that made its debut in the Hour Vision models. The movement uses a column-wheel system and is equipped with a co-axial escapement and an Si14 silicon balance spring. It has been certified as a chronometer by the Swiss testing agency COSC. So convinced is Omega Replica Classic of the reliability and stability of its movement that it delivers each watch with a four-year warranty.
This 18k rose-gold case is 42 mm in diameter and features polished and brushed finishes. The two-zone blue dial has two domed subdials: the one at 3 o’clock displays both the 60-minute and 12-hour counters for the chronograph, making it easy to read elapsed times; the one at 9 o’clock is for the running seconds. The watch has a central chronograph seconds hand and 18k-gold, diamond-polished, faceted central hour and minute hands. The applied Roman numeral indices are also gold, faceted on the sides and ends, and fully diamond-polished. brown or blue leather strap, or with a stainless steel case on a stainless steel bracelet or on a black or blue leather strap. The hour hand can be changed without affecting the minute and seconds hands, a boon for frequent travelers who traverse multiple time zones.
The movement, which is visible through the case’s sapphire exhibition back, has an 18k gold rotor and balance bridge. Other decorations on the movement include Geneva waves in Arabesque and blackened screws, barrels and balance wheel.
The rose-gold model shown here — with its blue alligator leather strap matching the dial — is also available with an opaline silver dial. There is also a model in a stainless-steel case, with a choice of blue, opaline silver or black dials, and a choice of black or blue strap or steel bracelet. These models contain Replica Omega De Ville Caliber 9300, which is identical in function to the rose-gold model’s Caliber 9301 but has a rhodium-plated rotor and balance bridge rather than gold ones. Prices are $29,000 for the rose-gold models, $8,300 for stainless steel on a leather strap, and $9,000 for stainless steel with bracelet.
Omega replica watches Swiss has been the watch of choice for James Bond since 1995, when Pierce Brosnan strapped on a Seamaster for Goldeneye. The Swiss brand has released a commemorative 007 timepiece to coincide with each subsequent film, but this year will mark a first in Omega’s partnership with the Bond franchise: for the release of this fall’s Spectre, starring Daniel Craig, Omega will release a limited-edition version of the watch actually worn by Bond in the film, an Omega Seamaster 300 on a black-and-gray NATO strap.
The Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre” Limited Edition has a 41-mm-diameter stainless-steel case with brushed and polished finishing, and a bidirectional rotating bezel made of polished black ceramic with a 12-hour scale in LiquidMetal, an innovative, proprietary alloy created by the Swatch Group, Omega’s parent company. (Liquidmetal made its debut in an Replica Omega Seamaster watch and has since been put to use by other Swatch Group brands, including Blancpain and Breguet.) The two-way rotation of the bezel allows the scale to be used to indicate a second time zone.
The black dial has recessed hour markers that are partially filled with “vintage” Super-LumiNova, which emits a blue glow in low light. In addition to the facted, rhodium-plated hour and minute hands, the dial features a “lollipop”-style hand for the central seconds.
Inside the 300-meter water-resistant case, and visible through a domed sapphire window in the screw-down back, is Omega’s Master Co-Axial Caliber 8400, an automatic, chronometer-certified movement that boasts a number of innovations that have become standard in fake Omega watches, including antimagnetic resistance to 15,000 Gauss, a silicon “Si14″balance spring, and a co-axial escapement. Decorative finishes include rhodium plating on the rotor and bridges, Geneva waves in arabesque, and a heat-blackened finish on the screws, barrels, and balance wheel. The frequency is 25,200 vph and the power reserve is 60 hours.
The five-stripe black-and-gray polyamide NATO strap features a brushed buckle and strap keepers engraved withe Omega logo and the “007” gun logo. Also distinguishing this version of the Omega Seamaster 300 as special are the engravings on the caseback, indicating “SPECTRE” “ANTI-MAGNETIC >15,000 GAUSS” and the Limited Edition series number. Only 7,007 models will be made, priced at $7,500 and available at select Omega boutiques in September.
One person who’s rather excited about the Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre” Limited Edition is James Bond himself, actor Daniel Craig, whom I found out, in my interview with Omega president Stephen Urquhart, is an avid Replica Omega Constellation watch collector. Craig recently toured Omega’s factory in Villeret, Switzerland alongside Urquhart and Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek and got a first-hand look at the process of watchmaking.
“I think what was so impressive was the fact that these replica Omega watches are made from the ground up,” Craig remarked. “You start with nothing, and then there’s suddenly a working watch. That’s the beauty of it. To see the engineering that goes into it and the legacy that goes into it, that’s what fascinated me.”
One of the few advantages of getting old is being around long enough to remember the Rolling Stones when they first impudently burst onto the scene, shocking the establishment and causing genuine outrage, parental anguish and teenage excitement in equal measure. No Swiss replica Omega watches store brand would have gone within a country mile of them in the early 60’s and the Stones wouldn’t have wanted anything to do with them either.
Today, of course, it’s all so very different. The President & CEO of Omega, Aldo Magada, attended the first stage of the latest band’s tour in San Diego on May 24, and you know you are part of the establishment when a former US President is among your greatest fans.
To celebrate their 150th anniversary (of Omega, not the Rolling Stones), the best Replica Omega Classic watchmaking brand has just launched the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to the Rolling Stones, the New Limited Edition of 1000 timepieces dedicated to the British rock legends Omega and the British rock stars have been collaborating since 2014. They also are said to share the same values: pleasure, daring and authenticity.
The El Primero Chronomaster 1969 tribute to the Rolling Stones timepiece is regarded as a real Rock ‘n’ Roll piece which picks up on the Rolling Stones’ codes; this New Omega Replica Limited Edition, a very dark, contemporary, rock-style look which is pioneering in its use of materials.
The vintage band kicked off their new 15-city North American stadium, ZIP CODE tour, in San Diego on 24 May at Petco Park. The Tour will make stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit and Buffalo, before wrapping in Quebec on 15 July at the Quebec City Summer Festival (FEQ). If you are in the area they will be worth seeing, but you really should have seen them 50 years ago.
In 1957, Omega Replica Constellation introduced its Seamaster 300 – a watch designed specifically for divers and professionals who worked underwater. The unidirectional rotating bezel and diving scale, along with the combination of a black dial, lighter indexes and large hands and numbers, made it possible for divers to read the time in a variety of light conditions whether they were on land or below the ocean’s surface.
More than half a century later, the Seamaster 300 is reintroduced in a completely upgraded and enhanced form, prepared to equip a new generation of adventurers on land and in the oceans.
The 41 mm Seamaster 300 is available in an impressive selection of metallic materials including stainless steel, 950 platinum, grade 5 titanium and 18K Sedna™ gold. Bicolour options pairing grade 5 titanium and 18K Sedna™ gold or stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold are distinguished by their timeless, understated aesthetic appeal.
OMEGA’s latest innovations in one collection
A black ceramic dial
The black ceramic dial of the Seamaster 300 features transferred dial elements that are produced using a combination of gold and palladium. The white gold colour is enhanced by a patented process that involves a high temperature treatment; the curving contour of the indexes is created by the enamel under-layer. The 18K white gold central hour, minute and seconds hands are coated with “vintage” Super-LumiNova and the hour and seconds hands emit a blue light as do the recessed hour markers. The minute hand is also coated with Super-LumiNova but emits a green light.
Smooth stainless steel with a Liquidmetal® diving scale
The stainless steel timepiece feature a sand-blasted black dial which complements the polished black ceramic bezel ring decorated with a Liquidmetal® diving scale. Recessed hour markers are coated with “vintage” Super-LumiNova which emits a blue light as do the rhodium-plated hour and seconds hands; the minute hand and the dot on the bezel are coated with Super-LumiNova that emits a green light.
Striking 18K OMEGA Sedna™ gold
One of the most brilliant wristwatches in the Seamaster 300 collection features a case and bracelet made from OMEGA’s 18K Sedna™ gold – an exclusive material that was introduced at Baselworld in 2013. Its sand-blasted black dial is adorned with facetted 18K Sedna™ gold hands and white transferred dial indications. The polished black ceramic bezel ring is enriched with an Replica Omega De Ville Ceragold™ diving scale.
Master Co-Axial calibre 8400/8401
With the Seamaster 300, OMEGA is proud to introduce two calibres in its new family of high-quality mechanical movements. The Master Co-Axial calibre 8400/8401 not only boasts the same accuracy, precision and reliability as its Co-Axial predecessors but also features our revolutionary anti-magnetic technology, which ensures that the Seamaster 300 – or any timepiece equipped with a Master Co-Axial movement – resists magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss (1.5 tesla). The officially certified chronometer is water resistant to 30 bar (300 metres / 1000 feet) and is offered with a full four-year warranty.
The caseback of each timepiece is engraved with “Si14”, “ANTI-MAGNETIC > 15’000 GAUSS” and, depending on what alloy the diving scale is made of, “Liquidmetal®” or “Omega Ceragold™”. A domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal allows an unobstructed view of the movement inside. The Master Co-Axial calibre 8400 equips the bi-colour, stainless steel and grade 5 titanium models while the Master Co-Axial calibre 8401, with its special luxury finish, powers the models crafted from 18K Sedna™ gold and 950 platinum.
Patented rack-and-pusher clasp
Bracelets of each timepiece are fashioned with Omega Replica Hour Vision patented rack-and-pusher clasp, which is adjustable to six different positions making it possible for the watch to fit over the sleeve of a diving suit. The bracelet is adjusted by releasing the clasp, pressing the “push” button and sliding the inner clasp to the desired fit.
Like its historic predecessor from 1957, the Seamaster 300 features a symmetric case and a unidirectional rotating bezel as well as a dark dial, lighter indexes and big hands and numbers for easier reading in various lighting conditions.
The Omega’s Her Time exhibition opens today at LaTriennale di Milano to celebrate the brand’s history with women through the display of more than 100 years of timepieces Omega replica watches for ladies.
Omega has a long tradition in developing women’s watches, from early Lèpine pendants to the the first models equipped with a central seconds indicator to enable nurses to time patients’ pulses, from the first tubogas bracelet in 1948 to the precious jewelry replica Omega watches from the 1960s and 70s.
Along with the Replica Omega Ladymatic watches themselves, visitors will be able to discover examples of vintage artwork and Omega advertising, all of which show women in a variety of lifestyles.
The white and gold themed exhibition space is 27 x 9 metres, with different sections dedicated to the changing periods of time.
The exhibition, inaugurated yesterday by the replica Omega watches brand‘s ambassador Nicole Kidman, is now freely open to the public until the 25th of September.
Celebrating Swiss replica OMEGA’s proud legacy and its 20 year partnership with Cindy Crawford, selected guests were welcomed to a special gala dinner in Mumbai on Thursday evening.
Hosted in the luxurious Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, the formal dinner celebrated the unveiling of the Constellation Pluma collection, an elegant wristwatch that takes its name from the LATIN word for “feather”, a theme that inspired the entire evening’s event.
Wearing the gorgeous new timepiece was OMEGA’s global ambassador Cindy Crawford, now a member of the new replica OMEGA watches family for two decades. Accompanying her was Raynald Aeschlimann, OMEGA Vice President & International Sales Director, Member of Swatch Group’s Extended Group Management Board, and the brand’s Indian ambassador, Abhishek Bachchan, looking dapper in his own stylish suit.
Commenting about her 20 years with the brand Cindy Crawford said, “OMEGA is very close to my heart. We’ve experienced some incredible moments throughout our years working together, and it’s an absolute pleasure to be back again in India to celebrate the launch of the Pluma Collection.”
Mr. Raynald Aeschlimann, OMEGA Vice President & International Sales Director, Member of Swatch Group’s Extended Group Management Board, speaking on the occasion said, “India has evolved multifold as a market for Replica Omega Classic. It’s always a pleasure to visit this country of such potential, which is noted for its vibrant youth. The Constellation Pluma is the perfect addition to the fashionable collections of these young men and women, and we’re thrilled that Cindy has joined us today to introduce the timepieces in India.”
Replica OMEGA Constellation Pluma
In astronomy, the word “constellation” refers to a group of stars. Meanwhile, in the watchmaking industry, the word is always associated with the OMEGA Constellation collection, which was introduced in 1952. The collection has always reflected precision, high technological standards and aesthetic appeal. Last year, OMEGA unveiled its collection of Constellation Pluma timepieces. These sophisticated watches take their name from the Latin word for “feather”, subtly hinting at the delicate design that accentuates its most striking element.
This year, OMEGA has released an evocative interpretation of the Constellation Pluma with a light coral-coloured dial that is reminiscent of the warm sunshine on a summer day. Similar to its sisters, this 27 mm timepiece is decorated with 11 diamond indexes in 18K gold holders and a soft-wavy pattern that flows between the iconic claws on the bezel. Its polished and facetted central hour, minute and seconds hands are crafted from 18K gold and coated with white Super-LumiNova, so the time can be read in a variety of lighting conditions. The 18K red gold bezel of this ladies’ replica Omega wristwatch is paved with 32 full-cut diamonds, adding to the overall style of this piece. This Constellation PLUMA is presented on a bracelet with brushed stainless steel links and polished 18K red gold bars. The OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520 at its heart is visible through a domed scratch-resistant caseback and the precision and reliability of this mechanical movement is such that the timepiece is offered with a full four-year warranty.

Omega Constellation Reference 2852 10SC, ca.1961
Let’s start with a couple of Constellation models you should be able to source for under a grand. Although this watch looks a bit used, worn, or perhaps even “damaged,” some might appreciate its “patina.” Although I am not too fond of dials that are scarred, this one does show that the watch has seen a bit of the world. This piece reminds me of an old, comfy-looking leather Chesterfield couch. This is an early 1960s model that has a Caliber 505 movement. These first series of Caliber 50x movements came right after their bumper movements (Caliber 354 and so on) and are considered to be solid performers. After the 50x series, Omega Replica Speedmaster came up with the 55x and 56x movements, which are improved versions. Just like all other Constellation watches of that period, this one was chronometer-rated. The dial has the “officially certified chronometer” wording and the movement has “adjusted to 5 positions and temperatures” engraved. This reference 2852 10SC Constellation has a 35-mm case diameter and has the fancy lugs and and 10-sided winding crown. The dial has quite a bit of patina, but is still very readable, with large dauphine hands. It’s not shown in the pictures, but on the caseback of this Constellation (as on all the current models, as well, I believe) is an embossing of an observatory. This particular model has a gold emblem on the back, with the Geneva observatory.
Omega Constellation ‘C’ Model reference 168.017 ca.1968
Later in the 1960s, Omega came up with a different case design for the Constellation collection. While the famous round “pie-pan” models were still available during the time, Omega also introduced the “C”-shaped model. The one I picked is Reference 168.017. It contains automatic Caliber 564, which has a quick-set feature. This model appears to be larger than the round models, mainly due to the integrated lugs, but is also just 35-mm in diameter. It certainly wears larger, though. You will also be able to find these models from a later period with a 300-Hz tuning-fork movement.
Although the case shape is a bit peculiar for today’s tastes, perhaps, the dial is something you should pay attention to. It has a very nice texture, which is a bit difficult to see in the picture, and the stick-shaped hour markers have onyx inlays. The caseback has the Geneva Observatory emblem, of course.
As you can see on the picture of the movement, the gold-copper finish is very nice to look at. If you are going to buy a vintage Omega with a similar caliber, make sure to have a peek at the movement before you buy. Some of them have green spots (moisture) or patina (also moisture) and if there are too many of these spots, I would leave the watch alone.
Omega Seamaster De Ville 166.020 ca.1968
Before the De Ville became a stand-alone collection of watches, Omega Replica Constellation used this name for some of the dress watches in its Seamaster collection. A number of these Seamaster dress watches actually are not that much different from the Constellation watches, except that the Constellation models always had chronometer-certified movements and the cases were a bit fancier.
This Seamaster De Ville also has an automatic caliber (565) and has a gold-capped case. Do not mistake this for a plaque or double; it is more like a shell of solid gold that goes over a stainless-steel case. You could say these were the two-tone watches of that era. Unfortunately, the watch in this photo does not have an original crown (it is unsigned and slightly too big) but with a bit of luck you might find either an original spare crown, or even a model with the correct crown. The stainless steel caseback has the Seamaster logo and Seahorse image embossed.
Omega Genève Chronostop ca.1970
Omega’s Genève collection is a bit odd, to be honest. It was used as a label for all different sorts of watches, from dress watches like the ones above to sporty watches such as the Genève Dynamic models of the 1970s. One of the Genève models I really like is the Chronostop watch. It was hard to find one under $1,000, as the model is relatively popular for a small-cased watch, but I managed to do so.
This particular watch’s movement is Caliber 865, based on Lemania Caliber 2225. It has a monopusher chronograph function. As you can see, the watch has only one pusher, which is used to start, pause (not stop), and reset the red seconds hand. By pushing it once, the chronograph hand starts to run. If you want to stop the time, you have to push it and keep it down. If you release the button, it will reset to zero again.
Other Omega Replica De Ville Watches that would fit the $1,000 bill include the 1970s Omega Genève Dynamic, a gold-capped Omega Seamaster Calendar with the date aperture at 6 o’clock, and a number of other Constellation and Seamaster references. One of the fun parts of the quest is the challenge of finding one that’s the right watch for you and also in good shape. Give up any hopes to find a Constellation or Seamaster in gold, or to get one with box, papers and original invoice, for this kind of money. However, if you do come across one, do not hesitate.
