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.
