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.
The Omega replica watches online is enriched this year with several new models. Focus on the version in steel featuring a blue dial.
A few months ago we introduced the Omega in gleaming rose gold presented by Carl F. Bucherer at Baselworld. Today we focus on the version in steel featuring a blue dial.
The distinctive Patravi ScubaTec diving Replica Omega Seamaster watches is attractive, robust and easy to read, both above and below the surface of the seas.
Precision and functionality are perfectly combined in the casual look of this timepiece: the CFB 1950.1 automatic movement has been integrated into a stainless steel case with a size of 44.6 mm and the accuracy of the movement is attested by a C.O.S.C. chronometer certificate. To ensure safe measurement of dive duration, the bezel of the Patravi ScubaTec can only be rotated counterclockwise, so that the diver’s safety remains guaranteed in the event of accidental manipulation. The generously designed dial of the three-hand Replica Omega Speedmaster watch assures rapid and accurate readability. Even in murky waters the diver can still read the time thanks to a special luminous coating (Super-LumiNova), which glows light blue in the dark. The black dial is well protected by a sapphire crystal almost 4 mm thick. In addition, a helium valve ensures that the gas escapes automatically without damaging the case when the diver is ascending and descending in the diving bell.
The new Omega replica watch is fitted with a black & blue rubber strap, or a stainless steel strap, equipped with a stainless steel diving lock..
Replica Omega Seamaster 300 …
In 1957 Omega launched the so called “Professional” series of watches, which encompassed the Seamaster 300, the first Speedmaster and the anti-magnetic Railmaster. Marketed as a diver´s replica Omega watches for sale professionals and amateurs the Seamster 300 fulfilled all requirements of a diving tool of the day; it passed the highest available water-resistance tests with flying colors…
The very first Seamaster 300 was highly sought after, not only for its superb water resistance, but also for its black dial, broad arrow hour hand, uni-directional diving bezel, and recessed triangular hour markers. That’s why, more than half a century after its first release, the new Seamster 300 has kept those same distinguishing features.
The new Master Co-Axial calibre 8400 not only boasts the same accuracy and reliability as its predecessors, but also features Omega´s anti-magnetic technology certified by METAS and COSC.
Omega Ceragold has been used to create the polished bezel and give the Replica Omega Seamaster watches a wonderful finish.
The case itself has been updated with unique Sedna gold, Omegas’s distinctive 18 carat rose gold alloy.
The recessed hour markers have been partially filled with “vintage” Super-LumiNova, a refined look by day, and a radiant blue glow in dark conditions.

Presented yesterday in Basel on occasion of Baselworld 2015, the Omega Globemaster is the world’s first Swiss Omega fake watches certified as a Master Chronometer passing the stringent tests that are part of the certification process announced at the end of last year by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
In order to earn the Master Chronometer distinction, the finished watches – not just the movement – are tested for their precision during and after exposure to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss, for autonomy (functioning without winding, measured in hours) and for water resistance.
The characterising design features of the new Globemaster are its dial, which is created in a style that cheap Omega replica watches collectors have long referred to as a pie-pan dial, and the fluted bezel, an element that has decorated several famous Constellation watches.
The case has a diameter of 39 mm and it is water resistant to 10 bar (100 metres / 330 feet).
The Globemaster will be available in steel with a sun-brushed blue dial, in Sedna gold (a rose gold alloy which blends gold, palladium and copper) with a silver dial and in yellow gold with a silver dial. The date aperture at 6 o’clock respects the symmetry of the dial layout.
The eight stars on the caseback of the Replica Omega Globemaster watches not only signify eight of the most important precision records that OMEGA’s movements set in the 1940s and 1950s (with the cupola depicting the observatory where the precision competitions took place), they also represent the eight tests that a watch must pass to become a Master Chronometer.
The Globemaster houses Omega’s most advanced mechanical movement ever developed with free-sprung balance, silicon balance spring, two barrels mounted in series offering a power reserve of 60 hours, bi-directional automatic winding to reduce winding time, and resistance to magnetic fields up to 15,000 Gauss. The Calibre 8901 that equips the gold version differs from the movement of the steel version (Calibre 8900) for the gold rotor and the finishes.
The Omega Globemaster will be in Omega replica watches stores in November. Prices start at Swiss Francs 6,300 for the steel version and goes up to Swiss Francs 18,000 for the gold model. A 352-piece limited edition in platinum will also be available with a price of Swiss Francs 37,000. All price mentioned are before local taxes. Bracelet option available.
The newest James Bond movie, called Spectre, will hit theaters on November 6th of this year and, as we all have expected and anticipated, Omega Replica Classic has unveiled its latest official 007 watch, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition, to coincide with the film’s release. In this article from my blog, Watch-Insider.com, I reveal more about the new timepiece.
The dial of this new Omega Seamaster watch is inspired by the coat of arms of the Bond family, and Omega Replica Constellation says that the watch itself will be limited to the odd number of 15,007 pieces. The brand didn’t arrive at this number by coincidence, however: the movement used in the modern versions of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, of which this watch is one, resists magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss. Combine that with Bond’s famous “007” numeral and the “15,007” number makes sense. You’ll find this number on the dial and also on the back of the watch, which indicates the series number and the text “15,007 Gauss.” Personally, I very much like the contrast between the yellow and the blue elements on the dial.
The Omega Seamaster Aquas Terra James Bond Limited Edition has a 41.5-mm case and is powered by Omega’s automatic Caliber 8507. In addition to its anitmagnetic properties, the version of the movement, according to Omega, boasts a newly designed winding rotor inspired by the iconic James Bond gun-barrel motif. I will update the article with a photo when Omega releases it.
So who wants to bet that the new Omega Replica Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition will end up playing a major role in James Bond’s latest adventure? Perhaps there will be a scene with a huge magnetic field, in which everything stops and is rendered useless except for Agent 007’s antimagnetic watch? Time will tell…
Omega Replica Hour Vision Watches is launching a new certification – Master Co-Axial Officially Certified – in partnership with the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology. This new standard imposes more stringent criteria than the COSC, including tough demands in terms of resistance to magnetic fields. It will be open to the entire Swiss watch industry.
It had to happen. After the initial series, in 1999, of one thousand watches equipped with the now famous co-axial escapement, developed by George Daniels; after the first in-house movement to incorporate co-axial technology, in 2007; after the Master Co-Axial movement of 2013, able to withstand magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss, Omega only had one thing left to do: launch a new certification. Stricter than COSC tests, the Master Co-Axial Officially Certified standard will make its debut in 2015, once the multinational has settled into its new building, currently under construction, at its site in Biel. Swatch Group, owner of Omega, convened a press conference in Geneva just before Christmas to paint a clearer picture of what this new certification entails.
A national body
Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek was quick to put the new scheme into perspective: “We could easily have taken a self-centred approach and simply publicised the new Omega Replica Constellation calibres,” he declared. “Instead of this, and in keeping with the group’s philosophy which has always been to defend Swiss watchmaking as a whole, and we have given ample proof of this in the past, we wanted this new certification to be open to everyone. No-one needs me to remind them how essential innovation is if our industry is to remain at the cutting edge, and on a global scale. But innovation is more than just a way of thinking. It requires investment in research and in production resources. This is also the message we need to get across.”
Needless to say, Swatch Group hasn’t contented itself with half-measures, particularly since changes made in 2013 to the statutes of Switzerland’s federal institute of metrology (METAS) allow it to collaborate on projects in the private sector. METAS, which rules on all questions concerning metrology, measuring instruments and methods, is a neutral and independent body that already works closely with the COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres). Its involvement lends the new certification important credibility and legitimacy. “I’ll say it again: we wanted this certification to be available to the entire industry,” continued Nick Hayek. “Watchmaking activity by companies in the region must be associated with Switzerland and its institutions. The partnership with METAS has a large part to play in this. Make no mistake, competition is knocking on the door, whether from Japan, India or China. They are working on the same points that are uppermost in our minds, with the aim of carving their niche in high-end mechanical watchmaking. This is one of the reasons why this standard goes further than anything we have today.”
In concrete terms, the new certification is clearly focused on the negative effects of magnetism*, currently identified as the number-one enemy of the mechanical watch within Swatch Group. “What does someone who wears a high-end mechanical watch expect?” asked Raynald Aeschlimann, member of the extended Swatch Group management board. “First and foremost he wants precision over the long term; he wants his watch to function properly in all circumstances, and to be 100% water-resistant. Now, we have observed that watches are frequently returned to after-sales service for problems caused by magnetism, and these problems are increasingly commonplace in our present-day environment. Often, customers aren’t even aware of this. They think it’s a purely mechanical defect. This new certification carries on this line of thinking.” The bar has been set at 15,000 gauss, which is the average value measured next to a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. This is infinitely greater than the current standard set by the Swiss watch industry (NIHS), which requires a watch to withstand 60 gauss in order to qualify as antimagnetic.
As the situation stands, only Replica Omega De Ville and its Master Co-Axial movement can lay claim to this new certification. Rolex and its Milgauss fall short of the mark. Hence there is little risk in the near future of empty order books for the COSC, particularly when brands such as Tissot and Mido are upping their game, now with some 100,000 COSC-certified watches. “Increased recourse to certification is in line with customer expectations,” Nick Hayek concluded. “At these price points, they know exactly what they can expect from a mechanical movement. This new standard should be seen as an additional guarantee as to the quality of the product.” A guarantee that will soon be offered, and possibly for a long time to come, by one single brand which has nonetheless succeeded in making it an official denomination.
