These days luxury replica Omega’s watches have a more commemorative role to play. Each Olympics is marked with a collectable limited edition. This year it’s the UK fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Beijing 2022 Special Edition (pictured above).
But watches, or rather stopwatches, is where the association started, 90 years ago this year.
To mark the 2022 Winter Olympics, Petros Protopapas, Swiss made replica Omega’s Brand Heritage Director and the manager of the Omega Museum in Switzerland, has chosen a dozen significant timepieces that go some way to telling the story of one the most important and long-term partnerships in sport. (best 1:1 copy Omega’s Worldwide Olympic Partnership currently extends through to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.)
2008, Seamaster XVI re-edition
“The 2008 re-edition of the AAA replica Omega Seamaster XVI, released during the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing. There were just 88 released and they were only available to purchase during the Games. After the last day they were sold out. It was no good going into a top super clone Omega boutique and saying ‘I want that one!’”
2018, Seamaster Olympic Games collection
“A cheap replica Omega Seamaster collection in five colours that’s based on the 1968 ‘Space Night’ watches. I love the fact this gives you a wearable, design version of one of my absolute timekeeping favourites. If you look at the hands, the numbers, everything… it is that same copy watch uk distilled. They came as a set, but you could also buy them on their own.”
