Omega Seamaster 300 165.024 Replica With Steel Case
Omega’s Seamaster 300 game is strong today and it was — as you can see — strong in the past as well. This is a vintage perfect fake Omega Seamaster 300 reference 165.024 and it ticks many boxes for me when it comes to vintage Seamaster watches. Although I love the very first CK2913 Seamaster 300, this 300 165.024 has a bit more body, and therefore would suit me better.
It has a 41.5mm case diameter and inside we’ll find Omega’s caliber 552 movement. I have a number of watches with this movement, and I’m always amazed how easily it runs (it starts ticking as soon as I pick up the watch), Better still, it keeps great time, even now! This cheap copy Omega Seamaster 300 165.024 dates back to 1967 and is the version without a date. It is also the reference used for the RAF in the 1960s. These watches do not come cheap, but still miles away from a 1960s Submariner. Expect to pay around €9,000 for a nice one. Omega Seamaster Baby Ploprof 166.0250 Fake With Black Dial
This waterproof copy Omega Seamaster 120M reference 166.0250 is often also referred to as Baby Ploprof. I don’t entirely get why it received this name, aside from being a smaller watch with less water resistance than the Ploprof 600M. This 166.0250 has a diameter of 40mm, and a water resistance of 120 meters, as the dial indicates. What it does have in common with the Ploprof, is the bulky case, the shark bracelet, and the shape and colors of the hands. I’m attracted by this divers watch mainly because of the case shape. It boasts super clean edges and large brushed surfaces. Inside is the caliber 1010, which is an automatic movement with 17 jewels. This reference is from the early 1970s, just like the 166.077. Also, it’s said that this vintage copy Omega diver was the first to have a sapphire crystal fitted. Prices depend on the condition of course but expect to pay around €3,500 for one on a steel shark bracelet.
We are finding young people are interested in new watches that have some sort of vintage appeal, Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann tells Moneycontrol (Image: Sedna gold case fake Omega Constellation) Akshay Sawai
Online availability and watches with history are two key drivers to attract young customers, Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann believes.
“We are finding young people are interested in new watches that have some sort of vintage appeal. We are not talking about simple reissues of classic watches: we are talking about modern watches that might reference the 1950s and 60s in their design,” Aeschlimann said in an interview in the April issue of ‘Monocle’. Man stepping on the moon was a giant leap for 1:1 quality copy Omega. It was the official watch of NASA missions, including Apollo XI, when Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins flew to the silver disc in our sky. That was 1969. Half a century later, Omega still possesses the cachet of being the first watch ever worn on the moon, of being on the hands of Armstrong and Aldrin as they registered one of mankind’s greatest achievements.
“Our new Speedmaster replica watches are inspiring for people who weren’t even born when astronauts were wearing them on the NASA moon-landing missions, but they love the story and the history and the look,” Aeschlimann said. “Luxury is about roots and DNA and young people respect this.” Coming to the present, Aeschlimann said that having a digital presence helped when the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to close their stores. “We had the difficulty of dealing with 460 shops that were closed temporarily,” he said. “But we were ready with a digital offering because we’d listened to what our customers had wanted in the past. You can’t prepare for these things overnight; you can’t just wake up in the morning and become creative or flexible – it has to be in your DNA.” Nonetheless, cheap copy Omega has invested in a flagship store in Zurich. It is a departure from luxury stores of the past, which were snobbish and where the product was in enclosures. The brand has emulated the Apple concept of letting customers touch and feel watches.
“Part of the concept was to make the watches feel available, and without cases it’s easier to imagine these watches on your wrist,” Aeschlimann said. “Two years ago, we started moving in a totally new direction with our shops, with this more transparent offering. A visit to Swiss made fake Omega shop should be like calling in on an old friend in their apartment.”
The words “Holy Grail” make me think of three things: Indiana Jones, Jay-Z, and the black dial fake Omega Speedmaster ref. 376.0822. The former pop-culture heroes may not need an introduction, but the Speedy ref. 376.0822 is a watch that doesn’t come up too often, and one man’s quest for finding one ended up with it being dubbed the “Holy Grail.” Legendary watch collector Chuck Maddox (of ChronoMaddox) was determined to add one of these to his collection in the late 1990s. This example has remained in overall excellent condition and developed a beautiful patina on the lume, giving it a great vintage aesthetic.
The things I love most about watches are all the little details and how two watches that look pretty similar can be very different. From afar, the high-end fake Omega ref. 376.0822, like we have here today, can be mistaken for any other Speedmaster Professional.
However, upon further inspection, you would notice that it’s clearly a different beast, something you don’t see very often. When looking at the watch, I immediately notice the day and date window, and the sub-register configuration is at six, nine, and 12, not three, six, nine, like the typical Speedy Pro. This one has such a good look, and all the additional functions are quite useful, like the automatic movement, 24-hour indicator at 12 o’clock, and the day and date functions.
As you might know by now, the automatic movement copy Omega Speedmaster Professional is one of my favorite watches. So this variant with an automatic movement and its additional functionality really gets me going. I love how Omega stayed true to the original Professional design with the similar bezel and lyre-lug case shape. Omega did beef up the case a little to make it slightly thicker, and it just feels so good on the wrist, especially with the ref. 1450 “Presidential” style bracelet that’s very comfortable. The steel bracelet replica Omega Speedmaster is a watch that can start and even finish off a collection, and the reference we have here is something that’d be a great addition to anyone’s stable of watches.
The best Omega replica watches from the 1950s? What does that actually mean? Every week we try to come up with a small selection of special watches for several reasons. Maybe they are the icons, maybe they are the affordable options, maybe they are technically brilliant, or maybe they look amazing. It can be anything really as long as they stand out. We’ll try and mix up things as much as possible and define an entry-point watch, my preferred choice, and we’ll close out by the icons where the money is no object.
A decade that defined Omega The 1950s was the decade that shaped Omega into the brand it has become today. Obviously, there is a great history before that. But in the 1950s, Omega copy introduced a series of new models that shaped the world of watchmaking as we know it today. As a result, it is hard to ignore the iconic Omega trilogy of the Speedmaster, Seamaster, and Railmaster for this list. But we all know there is more to the brand. Especially in the 1950s, as the trilogy was introduced in 1957. So let’s find out what some of Omega’s best watches from the 1950s are. The entry-point — white dial fake Omega Seamaster Calendar ref. 2627 Exploring the world of Omega in the 1950s leads to finding tons of different Omega Seamaster references. The Omega Seamaster was introduced in 1948 and was inspired by the watches Omega supplied the British Air Force with during World War II. The first Omega Seamaster was inspired by those watches and transformed into the perfect watch for civilians. The reason was more than logical.
During the war, the Omega’s used by the British Air Force proved to be very valuable to the British soldiers. They were reliable, water-resistant, accurate, easy to repair, and incredibly robust. It proved to be the perfect ingredients for introducing the brown leather strap copy Omega Seamaster in 1948 for consumers.
Omega released a wide array of references with different movements, dial executions, and materials in the years to follow. In the mid-1950s, we even saw Seamasters that looked almost identical to some of the Constellation models. It makes researching vintage copy Omega Seamasters and Constellations confusing at times, incredibly time-consuming but, most of all, tons of fun. If you are looking for an affordable way into the world of vintage Omega watches, the Seamaster is your way in.
My personal favorites from the 1950s are the models closest to the 1948 originals. I love the original cheap copy Omega Seamasters from 1948 (CK 2518 and CK 2577), and it’s also why I have an incredible soft spot for the 2018 Anniversary Editions. Despite the controversial case back, the increased 38mm makes it easier to wear than some of the vintage pieces that are significantly smaller.
Like you, no doubt, I’ve been wondering if $24,300 is the “right” price for a quartz movement replica watch. Not so long ago, I was reflecting on the expensive Patek Twenty~4. I found I really liked the design but I couldn’t see much value in the quartz besides its practicality. Naturally, understanding the price behind any luxury goods requires consideration of every step of production with the addition of retail margin.
Rarely does the average consumer of luxury goods appreciate the costs a company bears. Usually, people think the price-tag is all about maximizing brand profits. However, we can’t forget that watchmakers, marketing teams, sales forces have as much a right to earn a decent wage as any other specialist does. And while more and more luxury brands are getting on board in terms of transparency, luxury watch brands are still lagging behind.
Whereas the price for stainless steel, quartz Patek is high, I totally understand the value of a gold, diamond-pave timepiece. The perfect fake Omega Constellation Trésor made from Moonshine gold benefits from its alloy and gemstones. Moreover, creating this Milanese bracelet is much harder than it looks. Indeed, it is woven by machines, and then the silky-pattern is pressed on the top. Nonetheless, it is a difficult process that requires a lot of hard work and product development in order to achieve this kind of quality. You can find more details about Trésor on Omega’s website. In the meantime, let me know how much would you be prepared to spend on a quartz watch in the comments section below.
Buzz Aldrin, during his mission to the moon, astronaut Buzz Aldrin wore a quality replica Omega Speedmaster watch on his wrist, also making the watch the first to ever be worn on the moon.
The AAA perfect fake watch is now dubbed the ‘Moon Watch‘ and was worn as Aldrin made the Apollo 11 moonwalk alongside Commander Neil Armstrong in 1969 after it met the requirements held by NASA to attempt the mission.
Aldrin may have chosen his watch due to its stealthy durability which has been proved by the many adventurers that have worn it before him, including pilots and explorers.
The model chosen by Aldrin was the Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster ST105.012, which featred a 42mm case and a calibre 321 and mysteriously disappeared after he followed protocol and sent it to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington to be displayed.
It is possible that today the watch would be sold for millions at auction if it were to ever turn up.
It was tough sledding for last week’s TAG Heuer Kirium Formula 1. The neo-vintage ana-digi chronograph took a vintage Mike Tyson style beating with 73% voting this one to the scrap pile. The comments were absolutely savage and many of you recalled the days of fragrances such as Drakkar Noir and Davidoff (no, not those guys) Cool Water. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that today’s best quality fake Omega Dynamic III will fare much better. Whether it wins the Fratelli’s favor, will be up to you.
The Omega Dynamic III The Omega Dynamic series of watches have normally been reserved for downright odd watches from the brand. If you go look up the Omega fake with black dial, the original series contained an oval-shaped case that makes me think of the hallucinogenic drugs of the 1960s and ’70s. The second series erupted into the 1980s and followed the drug trade with its Acapulco gold looks and off-centered dial designs. Therefore, it was nothing short of surprising when the Dynamic III line debuted in 1997 in a very buttoned-up form.
With the copy Omega Dynamic III line, the brand set about offering watches to a younger, entry-level buyer. They also decided to look back to World War II and the watches they made for the British military. In what I can only describe as a bit of a weird move, Omega chose to debut these watches in Munich at the Inhorgenta fair. Regardless of the questionable locale, the world at large received two 38mm steel military-inspired watches available at approachable prices. One was an automatic chronograph and the other was a three-hand automatic with date.
Some specs Whether you chose an Swiss movement fake Omega Dynamic III in field watch or chronograph guise, there were similarities. As mentioned, both rang in at 38mm in diameter. You could have them on leather or bracelet and each was good down to 50 meters with their screw-down crowns. Both watches used the ETA 2892-A2 as a base, but the chronograph brought in a Dubois-Depraz module. If you’re looking at the chronograph from the side, you can see the “stacked” crown and pushers. A simple screw-in case back with the Omega logo kept things tidy. The watches all had black dials, lumed dagger hands, a yellow sweep hand, and luminous Arabic numerals. Notably, these numerals switched to Super-LumiNova around 1998, which explains the stark difference when viewing various models. Not overly popular I still recall seeing the steel braelet replica Omega Dynamic III at places like Tourneau in New York City during the late 90s. It’s hard for me to remember the prices, but I feel like the chronographs were under $2,000 and I honestly cannot recall the cost of the three-hander. People like my Dad took a look at these because of their no-nonsense looks. However, I remember him ultimately moving on to something that looked a little more serious and grown-up. These watches didn’t look overly cheap, but they certainly had emitted an air of cost-cutting. Perhaps the printed dials were the root cause. Whatever the reason, these simply didn’t sell. You can read more about them here.
As far as I can tell, Cindy Crawford was the very first modern replica watch brand ambassador. Sure, Rolex featured famous athletes and explorers in their advertisements, and occasionally a brand would land a product placement deal with a major Hollywood blockbuster. But when Crawford signed on with Omega in 1995, not only did she start a now-25-year relationship that would see her design watches, travel the globe speaking about them, and partner with Swiss movement fake Omega on philanthropic work – she also changed the watch industry forever.
So when I had the chance to sit down and chat with Crawford a few weeks ago, I had a mountain of questions about those early days. What was it like being approached by a watch company before that was de rigueur for a person of her stature? When did she take her first trip to the best quaity copy Omega manufacture, and what does she remember about seeing serious watchmaking for the first time? Which design elements of the famous Constellation actually came from her? I got answers to most of those questions, but I also got quite a few stories I hadn’t bargained for: Memories of picnics on Swiss mountaintops with none other than Jean-Claude Biver (who was in the midst of revolutionizing watch marketing as the head of Omega), that time she jokingly told Nicholas G. Hayek Sr. that she really wanted a platinum fake Omega Constellation (and, spoiler alert, he made it for her), and a whole lot more.
In addition to talking about the minutiae of watchmaking and luxury marketing, we also got into Crawford’s early days working in cornfields and aspiring to be president, why the early ’90s were the perfect time for the emergence of supermodels, and how she has turned her career into a platform for having a voice and making a difference. “I’ve always said that modeling is what I do, it’s not who I am.”
WRISTWATCHES have always been a symbol of elegance and exclusivity that lasts for generations. Watch enthusiasts and horologists alike believe that timepieces embody both technology and craftsmanship.
Some watches are equipped to read temperatures, navigate, and even measure speed. Above all, a luxury wristwatch is the ultimate statement piece that epitomises class and sophistication.
A LIFETIME OF EXCELLENCE
PERFECT OMEGA REPLICA has always been known for its commitment to excellence, which is why they were chosen by NASA to be a part of their space programme in 1965.
During the Apollo 13 space mission, the explosion of an oxygen tank forced the astronauts to conserve energy by shutting down the power supply. This meant they had to rely entirely on the BEST FAKE OMEGA Speedmaster to time a precise 14-second burn, so they could manually readjust their course.
It was after this momentous event that the Speedmaster was christened as the ‘Moonwatch’ for its noteworthy contribution in bringing the astronauts home safely.On October 5, 1970, OMEGA also received the coveted “Silver Snoopy Award” from the astronauts at NASA, an award to recognise the outstanding efforts of organisations that have assisted in space exploration efforts. Exactly 50 years later, a special timepiece has been created in honour of the occasion, the 1:1 QUALITY REPLICA OMEGA Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary.
A CELESTIAL CELEBRATION
This novel wristwatch pays homage to the Apollo 13 mission, and it comes in a stunning colour profile of astronaut blue, white and silver. The iconic Speedmaster features a caseback with an animated display that is linked to the timepiece’s internal mechanism, showcasing a departure from the usual Moonwatch aesthetic.
Against the backdrop depicting a starry night sky is a crystal sapphire etching representing the lunar surface, and a blue Earth on a disc that moves in tandem with the seconds hand on the flipside of the watch. Snoopy takes a ‘trip’ around the mysterious side of the moon when the chronograph seconds hand is in use.
EYES ON THE STARS”Eyes on the Stars”, the iconic quote, is included within the black universe background. The caseback features OMEGA’s NAIAD LOCK system which will ensure that these details stay in their correct position.
Showing OMEGA’s superb attention to detail, the watch’s blue nylon fabric strap matches the other blue elements of the watch. It even features the trajectory of the Apollo 13 mission embossed on the lining.
In a display of watchmaking skill, the Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary watch is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861.
This new model still maintains its classic steel case, but has a sprinkling of blue on its insignia markers as well as the bezel, and comes with a blue nylon strap with white contrast stitching.
However, seasoned Speedmaster collectors would be delighted to note that this timepiece comes with a Speedy Easter Egg. The tachymeter follows the classic 1960’s design, including the famous ‘Dot Over Ninety’, a common design of bezels between 1957 to 1970. Here, a white dot sits above the number ’90’ on its blue ceramic bezel ring.
The OMEGA Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary watch includes a sterling silver dial adorned with blue PVD hour markers and hands. A small surprise appears in the blue sub-dial at 9 o’clock, where Snoopy is depicted to be wearing a spacesuit, reminiscent of the Silver Snoopy Award lapel pin.
For fans of OMEGA watches and Snoopy, you can thank your lucky stars because this unique timepiece will not be a limited production and also comes with OMEGA’s full 5-year warranty.
Eager fans will receive the watch in its own Apollo 13 presentation box, with a microfibre cleaning cloth, a brochure and a magnifying glass to help you get up close to the details.

Moon-loving Omega Speedmaster replica changed the watch landscape and is today one of the unquestionable icons of watchmaking. Among its many different versions – always quite faithful to the original – I’ve selected my favorite ones.
When I was a young boy – and it was so long ago I hardly remember – contrary to George Clooney my dream was not to become an astronaut. For a lad from Poland space was a bit like a distant land from a fairytale, and Moon itself just a big, glowing bulb on the night sky. My future was to be a football player (soccer for those of you over the pond) but all it is left of that dream are my quirky legs. Passion for watchmaking came much later. Today, when I gaze at the Moon, first thing that jumps to mind is… watches. When more than half a century ago Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped out of the lunar module to make a first small step for a man and one giant leap for mankind, not only did they write our history but at the same time not least important chapter in history of watches. The best quality replica Omega Speedmaster ref. 105.012 with a manual caliber 321 inside the case was first ever watch on the surface of our natural satellite, however what’s even more important is what it meant for Omega. Without the Speedmaster and the Moon-story the Biel-based brand would be in all other place today. On the other hand Speedmaster is such a good watch design, that even without a tete-a-tete with NASA it would still be one of the best chronographs out there. Since 1957 up until this very day cheap fake Omega crated a variety of different interpretations of the iconic Speedmaster. Along faithful re-interpretations of the past and numerous jubilee editions came modern iterations of the Moonwatch, crafted from high-tech materials and equipped with contemporary, manufactured automatic movements. Vast society of Speedmaster collectors gather under the #SpeedyTueasday hashtag and collecting vintage grows by day, especially with auction market selling top vintage lots for premium money. While writing this story I have my very own Omega Speedmaster replica with steel bracelet strapped to the wrist. That one did not make it into the list, but still holds a very special, sentimental value despite me still not dreaming about flying into space and being locked in a tin-can of a space station.
