Where should I start with this one? I wrote a significant article waxing lyrical about the perfect replica Omega Seamaster 2254 as my GADA watch last year and also did a YouTube video on what makes the reference great. However, it’s been a little while since all that. After making a full trip around the Sun with the luxury fake Omega SeamasterUK on my wrist, I can say that this is my ideal watch. You might compare its specs on paper to the modern Omega Seamaster 300M replica for men and conclude it’s a lesser watch.
However, I think all of its “weaknesses” are strengths in disguise. To me, modern 1:1 fake Omega Seamasters UK are a bit far removed from their tool-watch origins. The ceramic dials and bezels and a few too many polished elements give them a bit too much of a blingy look. I’ll take an anodized aluminum insert and a matte wave dial over ceramic any day.
To me, the 2254 ticks all the boxes. It has character thanks to its big bezel numerals and generously sized hour markers, including the slice of lume pizza at 12. The sword hands hark back to this super clone watch’s military predecessors from the 1960s. And finally, proportionally, it hits a sweet spot. At 41mm in diameter and just over 11mm thick, the size is what I would consider timeless. If a five-digit Rolex Submariner sets the standard, this Swiss movement replica Omega offering is not far off. And as much as the Sub is a classic, I prefer the slight oddball looks of this SMP. These include the helium escape valve and the oddly gripless scalloped bezel. When you embrace a watch not despite but because of its imperfections, you know you’ve found the one. I mentioned earlier that it’s not good to pick favorites, but this top quality fake Omega is mine, no doubt about it.
Last Tuesday (of course), perfect fake Omega UK presented its latest Speedmaster model, a watch that felt highly familiar at first sight, being an updated version of an existing model, the cheap replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8. First presented in 2018 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the mission that first observed the other side of our satellite (and also the first human spaceflight to reach the Moon…), this DSOTM Apollo 8 was characterized by its lunar texture on both sides and its bold black and yellow colour scheme. With the new copy watch, it seems that not much has changed, apart from a seconds hand shaped like Saturn V and an updated movement. But it is really that simple? Let’s dive into the details.
AN UPDATED CERAMIC CASE For 2024, cheap replica Omega updates this watch, which was one of the last models in the collection not to be equipped with a Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement, together with the 321-equipped watches (but these are not meant to change). This could have been the only update made by high quality fake Omega UK.
And if you look very briefly at the new aaa quality replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8, it seems like it. Yet, a closer inspection reveals multiple incremental updates. In fact, not only the movement is new but most of the parts of the habillage have been revised too. Case, dial, bezel, strap… Despite looking very familiar, none of these parts is identical to the initial Apollo 8 watch.
Let’s start with the case. As you might imagine, this new Speedy DSOTM retains the collection’s black ceramic construction and its large 44.25mm diameter. However, looking closely at the case, you’ll see that, in the details, the shape has been revised. In the same vein as the new Moonwatch of 2021, the case is here remodelled to come closer to the look of the reference 105.012 – the first 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster to feature an asymmetrical case and lyre-shaped lugs. Of course, we’re talking about minimal changes, but the profile is slightly different, specifically the tip of the lugs. Another difference is the thickness, which now sits at 13mm, while the previous generation was 13.80mm. The length of the case is measured at 50mm, which remains pretty compact considering the diameter of the watch.
A SLIGHTLY REVISED DIAL, WITH A ROCKET! Moving on the dial of this updated UK Swiss movement replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8, it’s about the same story as the case. At first, it looks identical but in fact, multiple details have been revised – again, we’re talking about minimal revisions. First, the texture of the dial is more detailed than before. The lunar surface is still obtained thanks to a laser ablating process but it has a higher resolution than before and more precision in the definition of the craters and reliefs. Also, the lower section of this texture is slightly darker than before, again due to the evolution in the laser ablating process on the brass base. The raised element around the dial, which includes the racing-like seconds track and the applied darkened hour markers, is identical with a fine snailed texture.
NEW STRAP, BETTER COMFORT The last update to the top quality fake Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 is the strap. Still measuring 21mm at the lugs and 18mm at the buckle, it is now entirely made of rubber, while the top layer was leather in the previous version. This black and yellow perforated strap is now closed by a folding clasp rather than an ardillon buckle, which is made of ceramized titanium with a ceramic closing mechanism.
On the wrist, despite its large dimensions, this best super clone Omega UK is comfortable and well-balanced – the 99-gram weight is surely helping here, compensating for the slightly oversized case.
We could have gone for any of the 75th Anniversary models of the luxury replica Omega Seamaster Summer Blue collection, as they all come with a gradient blue dial, but we’re focusing on the iconic Diver 300M.
From the 1:1 fake Omega Aqua Terra 150 to the Ultra-Deep 6000M, the deeper the watch can go, the darker the gradient dials get. This one sits about in the middle, and its ceramic dial with a wavey laser-engraved pattern is light blue in the middle and gets darker towards the edge. AAA quality replica Omega is paired with a two-tone blue ceramic insert and a blue rubber strap. Alternatively, it can come on the well-known steel bracelet. A special decoration on the caseback hides the Master Chronometer calibre 8800. Swiss made replica Omega UK retails for CHF 5,600 on a rubber strap or CHF 5,900 on a steel bracelet.
