What will you get by pairing a replica diving watch with a chronograph? A practical tool watch can be used on land and sea. Meet up with Omega Seamaster Diver 300M coaxial chronograph – this all-round sport watch can be worn in and out of water.
Omega seahorse Diver 300M coaxial chronograph (number: 188.8.131.52.01.001) is a proud replica watches. The wide 44mm stainless steel case looks like even bigger than actual thanks to the screw-in timing button on the upper crown side and the protrusion of the helium escape valve (which also includes an integrated date corrector). As the name suggests, the fake watch is waterproof to a depth of 300 meters (1,000 feet).
The top of the case also features a striking polished black ceramic unidirectional bezel (marked 60 minutes) to track diving time. The sporty black dial provides a lot of information but manages to proceed in a balanced manner. In addition, three registers (30 minute recorder, 12 hour recorder and one running second hand indicator) are located at familiar 3 o ‘clock, 6 o ‘clock and 9 o ‘clock positions. More importantly, sub dial hidden at the 6 o ‘clock position is a date window.
In the center of the dial is a large hollow sword pointer with a luminous tip, and a red chronograph pointer with a luminous point. There are other red tones on the dial, including the five-minute mark on the minute track, the chronograph recorder pointer and the name “Seamaster.” To increase low light visibility, the applied hour marker is filled with lume. Dial top is a dome anti – scratch sapphire crystal, both sides have anti – reflective treatment.
Seamaster Diver 300M coaxial Calibre 3300 automatic movement below the stainless steel base cover for the chronograph Calibre 3330 – an officially certified observatory watch – provides 52 hours of power storage, including a cylinder and coaxial escapement. In addition, it is equipped with a free spring balancing device with Si14 silicon gossamer.
Calibre 3330 Calibre 3330 allows the Omega replica watches to calibrate its timing function to 1/8 second and measure its total time consumption of up to 12 hours. In addition, the date is set by pressing the corrector button at 10 o ‘clock, which is integrated into the knob of the helium discharge valve, rather than the upper chain crown.
Sometimes you must choose to wear a diving watch and chronograph. However, because Omega combines the two functions in a powerful sports watch, there is no need to use the Seamaster Diver 300M coaxial chronograph to make the choice. Seamaster Diver 300M coaxial chronograph is a very practical and attractive watch for seamless underwater diving exploration from timed events on land.
There is a distinct engraving known as the Omega Seahorse on the caseback of certain Omega watches. Have you ever wondered where this unique emblem came from? Today we will help unveil the fact. The hippocampi were sea monsters with the heads of horses and the lower bodies of fish in Greek mythology. They bear some resemblance to the seahorse creatures we know today – actually, the genus of the seahorse is Hippocampus.
It is said that Poseidon, the god of the sea drove a chariot drawn by hippocampi. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to ride a gondola through the canals of Venice in Italy, you may have noticed a pair of metal ornamental hippocampi on each side of the boat. These are meant to be a symbol of protection for the gondolas, drivers, and passengers.
In the 1950s, an engraver by the name of Jean-Pierre Borle was working at Omega. He was the craftsman behind the famed “Observatory” emblem found on the caseback of the Omega Constellation, which depicts an observatory and eight stars. The illustration stands for the location of chronometer trials and the eight stars denote the number of chronometric records that fake Omega broke in 1931.
Jean-Pierre Borle took a trip to Venice and noticed the hippocampi on the gondolas. These seahorse-like statues served as inspiration for his next engraving. In 1958, the hippocampus became the symbol of the replica Omega Seamaster as a means to signify the watch’s water resistant capabilities.
It’s interesting to note that Omega replica watches refers to this logo as a “seahorse” when it is clearly a hippocampus, complete with bridles. Early versions of the Omega Seahorse logo were etched into casebacks, which eventually evolved into a more intricate embossing of the emblem, similar to what is found on the contemporary watches that Omega sells today.
While it first made an appearance on the Seamaster, the hippocampus symbol did not remain exclusive to the Seamaster collection. Omega began using their seahorse insignia on some of their other tool watch models, such as the Railmaster and Speedmaster – also as a manes to denote their impressive water resistance. Today, you can find the Omega seahorse logo on select models, which remains an important and historic symbol of the brand.
omega seamaster and seamaster planet ocean watches are two kinds identical watch collection, both of them get a fair amount of attention for good reason. first of all, it’s a high-end sport watch and the allure of “desk diving.” when it originally released in 2005, the omega seamaster planet ocean were praised as a more durable, high-end range of divers meant to compete with timepieces such as the rolex submariner.
a curved crystal and reflective elements on the dial on purpose. the omega seamaster planet ocean is also an extremely capable professional dive watch, but is a bit cockier in its demeanor. it wants to show off a bit and demands attention. if you choose to wear an omega planet ocean exclusively while diving or during other intense activity it will complain that you two never go out for drinks anymore.
omega has also really made an omega seamaster planet ocean for everyone. it’s only truly complete on the matching metal bracelet. having said that i really so also like the strap. surely you can have the watch with both, but at this time there isn’t a quick strap changing system that some other brands such as iwc have been building into their replica watches. i only say this because in the future it would be great if omega made it more convenient to seamlessly go from a strap to a bracelet.
perhaps the biggest complaint most people have about the inexpensive replica omega seamaster planet ocean collection is the thickness of the case. if i had any complaints it would really be only that. the case isn’t inordinately thick, nor do i feel it is at all disproportionate. most of the time i even like the heft on my wrist, but having said that i find that when a sport watch has a slightly lower profile i tend to wear it just a bit more often. some people even complain about the modern rolex submariner being too thick – which i actually find quite slim for a dive watch.
it would be difficult to complain that for the most part the omega seamaster planet ocean Gmt speaks for itself. omega has rather rapidly moved upmarket over the years with their dive watches but they haven’t ignored the fact that they need to include a lot of extra value to justify their prices. with a world-class design, import Japanese movement, swiss movement, and other excellent watch parts, and killer ceramic and liquid metal bezel, there isn’t much else others offer that omega hasn’t done as well or better. it makes for a solid diver or all around daily wear. You’ll choose the particular version that is suitable for you, but please be aware that it is really hard to go wrong with an inexpensive omega seamaster planet ocean in most situations.
I guess that you already know how much I like Omega’s 2012 re-edition of the historically important watch, of course, if you are a regular reader here, a model that Walter Schirra wore in 1962 during his Sigma 7 flight. I bought one of my own just a couple of days after shared the story because I couldn’t find it in me to give it back to Omega. It quickly established itself in my collection as the go-to watch and took home the annual “Most Worn” title in 2016. At almost the halfway point in 2017, it looks like it will retain that title and the more time it spends on my wrist, the more I appreciate it. I enjoy it not just as a pure re-edition of that model, but also as a Speedmaster with all of the line’s best attributes.
It’s exactly due to these reasons that I’ve always had a bit of an uncomfortable relationship with another beloved “FOIS” edition – the “First Omega in Space” in Sedna Gold. There is no doubt that it is an amazing watch and a deluxe version of my own, but I’ve also always thought of it as a big departure from the Speedmaster and one that I wasn’t sure I felt comfortable with. Speedy enthusiasts mostly welcomed the watch when it released in 2015, and some have tried their hardest to convince me of its appeal, but for several reasons I have been unable to hear them.
To begin with, the very best and most defining attribute of the Speedmaster versus almost every other chronograph of the 1960s is its uniform black dial. The panda scheme is attractive, and the opaline dial and brown sub-dials of the Sedna Gold edition works particularly well, but it felt like Omega replica was encroaching into enemy territory – what I’ve learned since going hands on with the Sedna Gold edition is that another model set this precedent 20 years ago.
Secondly, and may be more importantly, I’ve always found that putting the Speedmaster in a precious metal was a bit of a bourgeois move. The Speedmaster was (and I consider it to still be) a cheap sports watch, and surely an everyday watch.
It’s a Speedmaster with a panda dial. What could you possibly have against it?
Right away, I was struck with how elegant the Sedna Gold FOIS is in person. It looks nothing like my watch, but it looks better as hell. One thing I’ve noticed taking photos of replica watches for several years is that the better looking the watch, the easier it is to photograph, and here the photos speak for themselves. If ever there was a looker, this watch is it.
Since they look so different, it’s easy to forget how much the two watches have in common. What has changed is rather significant though. Omega has decided to work with gold, and not just any kind, preferring a unique and property combination of gold, copper, and palladium to achieve a warm tone that lies somewhere between red and pink gold. To complement it, replica Omega has created a brown ceramic bezel, which again offers a little more difference then going with straight black ceramic. And because it is gold, one of the most unsettling features of the watch, besides its distinct look, is it heft.
It’s impossible to make a direct comparison between the original FOIS and this gold edition, but I have to say that one feature I miss in this present version is the distinction between the time-telling functions and the chronograph, which I thought was brilliantly done by using polished steel for the first, and painted batons for the second.
The most interesting stuff is that the original FOIS and the Sedna Gold edition is that while the first tries very difficult to replica the features of Walter Schirra’s, the second takes a confident step into the opposite direction. But this isn’t the replica Omega‘s first crack at a gold panda dial Speedmaster.
