We had to know this was coming right? Well, maybe yes and maybe no. Just last month I wrote about Dr. No in conjunction with the 60th Anniversary of that film’s release. I think everyone figured if there was going to be a new Seamaster, it would have happened then. Monitoring some of the forums it appeared as though fans figured the event had come and gone with no replica watch. And how wrong they were. And how awesome this is!
Having not seen this watch in person, my first thoughts are: Very very…very cool. It’s sort of exactly what we want from a release like this these days. It’s modern, robust, and stylish given the mesh bracelet. Add to that a bit of neo-vintage heritage via the original blue Bond perfect fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300m (did I mention wave dial?) and you have more than my attention.
I have covered the No Time To Die luxury replica Omega Seamaster a few times here on the site and got hands-on with it for the recent Watching Movies video. I really enjoy that watch, specifically the feel of it. Aesthetically, it’s handsome but maybe a bit too faux-vintage for my tastes with all of the faux-patina and faux-military accouterment.
This watch feels more contemporary, as if cheap super clone Omega UK found the secret sauce to bring a fan-favorite watch into modern day without making things overly modern. Now, it’s important to mention that Omega does make a current-gen high quality fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300m in blue, and that watch still goes by the nickname “Bond,” from time to time. With its ceramic bezel and wavy laser-engraved ceramic dial, it’s the epitome of the current Swiss copy Omega design thinking. It’s big, it’s heavy, and it’s shiny. It also happens to be one of the brand’s best selling pieces.
This 60th Anniversary model is not meant to replace that piece. This new Bond Swiss movement replica Omega UK is for enthusiasts, both horologically and cinematically speaking. And where I typically would shy away from an overt commemorative caseback, there’s just something so cool about the way 1:1 copy Omega is raising the stakes in this regard. The Snoopy around the Moon animation from last year was a real showstopper and I cannot wait to see this one in action too. I think it requires playing the theme song every time you look at it.
Then there’s the Canopus gold watch. Talk about unexpected! It similarly appears to be a watch that’s not overtly limited in number but rather in production. While it’s jarring to see the Swiss movement fake Omega Diver 300m executed this way, it actually looks incredible. The sporty look of the crown and HEV paired with the precious metal and diamonds is a vibe unto itself.
Overall, I really like the looks of the new steel blue mode, even as an everyday copy watch. The muted, almost navy hue of the blue looks absolutely killer here – a big departure from the glossy look of ceramic. And the wave pattern looks better than ever in this execution.
I’m certainly looking forward to hopefully seeing this best quality replica Omega UK in person in the future. If any of you get your hands on one, send wrist shots (and caseback videos) my way, I’d love to see them.
