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 Seamaster UK 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.
