You may know that I have a thing for smallish do-it-all watches. In my vintage-dealing days, I came across these perfect fake Omega 166.010 models and similar references on a regular basis. They fit the bill perfectly. They are well-built and stylistically versatile. Dear Swiss replica Omega UK, do me a favor and bring these back!
So what do we have here? The luxury replica Omega Seamaster 166.010 is an evolution of the 1958 reference CK 2975. It is a straightforward, minimalist sports watch in a muscular case measuring around 35mm in diameter. The later 166.010 adds a screw-down case back, whereas the 1:1 copy Omega CK 2975 had a snap-on back. The case is simple yet broad-shouldered, providing the watch with a sporty stance on the wrist. The 166.010 came on a supple beads-of-rice bracelet.
The dial is the star of the show. It is home to a classical configuration of black-filled faceted indices and a dauphine handset. An applied high quality fake Omega logo and intricately faceted date-aperture frame (on some) add to the sophistication. Most of these have silver sunburst dials, but you will find other colors and special finishes if you search for them.
They can be found in chronometer or non-chronometer versions. The dial will tell you which is which. Personally, I prefer the non-chronometer versions for their cleaner dials. In any case, you will find a version of the in-house 56x caliber family inside. These have a quickset date feature. The super clone Rolex Datejust would not get one until 1977. How about that for bragging rights as a potential Datejust killer?
What makes the 166.010 so good
As mentioned before, the stylistic versatility of these AAA quality replica watches is great. It is a bit of a cliché, but they pair with shorts as well as with a suit. Sure, these are technically sports watches, but they dress up effortlessly. They also allow for playing around with strap options. A black crocodile and an army-green nylon strap will both work perfectly, offering radically different looks. Of course, the original steel bracelet is at home in any situation as well.
Lex recently criticized me for entering my vintage Omega Seamaster fake for sale as a dress watch in our article on favorite dress watches. But the thing is this: the subtle sportiness of the aggressive case and top copy Omega Seamaster branding lend just the right hint of badassness to an otherwise quite-formal watch. And it is precisely that which makes it even cooler in dressier circumstances.
The beads-of-rice bracelet might scream the ’60s, but the rest of the Swiss movement replica Omega UK is quite timeless. If you ask me, there is no prettier combination than applied, faceted indices and dauphine hands. A simple, smooth bezel and sunburst dial complete a classical look that has never been in or out of vogue.
