Although the perfect replica Omega Seamaster first saw the light of day in 1948, it really became a genuine dive watch in 1957 when the brand created three professional ranges: Seamaster, Railmaster and Speedmaster. At that point it took on all the attributes of the modern diving watch, including enhanced water resistance, a rotating bezel and easy readability. However, the growing practice of saturation diving in the 1960s created the need to develop even more effective high-tech instruments. The high pressures experienced at great depths make the air toxic, so divers must breathe a mixture of helium and oxygen to reduce the danger of narcosis. As one of the smallest elements, helium runs the risk of entering a Swiss made fake watch even when water or oxygen cannot. During time spent at great depths or in a pressurised environment, the pressure inside the watch gradually equalises with the pressure in the diving suit or diving bell. As a diver ascends, the return to surface pressure may cause the super clone watch’s crystal to burst off.
A Unique Set of Characteristics
In the 1960s, luxury replica Omega UK started to work with Compagnie Maritime d’Expertise (better known as COMEX), launching a programme known as Ploprof (a contraction of plongeurs professionnels, professional divers). The name encapsulates the mission statement: creating models in collaboration with professional divers, for professional divers. Among the various solutions examined, the AAA fake Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1 gave birth to an iconic watch: the Seamaster 600 Plongeur Professionnel, first marketed in 1971. It stands out due to its imposing dimensions (55mm wide and 13.5mm thick) and a unique design structured around an asymmetrical case made from ‘Uranus’ 904L stainless steel. To prevent helium entering the copy watch, a single-piece construction was adopted. The cheap fake Omega Seamaster Ploprof was presented as being water-resistant to 600m, but has been tested at pressures exceeding 1,300m. Another distinguishing feature is its original bezel locking system. While the bezel is bidirectional, it can be rotated only by pressing on the coloured pusher at two o’clock. The crown is located at 9 o’clock and protected by an imposing crown cover. Its unique position ensures wrist movement is not impeded and prevents any inadvertent adjustment.
This iconic dive copy watch and its unashamedly vintage design made a comeback in 2009 with the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M replica for sale, followed by a new edition in 2016 featuring the same distinguishing marks, ethos and outsize dimensions as the original model, whilst delivering extreme performance and incorporating a number of technical advances.
As its name suggests, the case of the Swiss movement fake Omega Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer is water-resistant to 120 bars (1,200m), and made from grade 2 titanium to ensure it is lightweight, robust and corrosion-resistant. The bidirectional rotating bezel, still activated by a safety pusher at 2 o’clock, is now fitted with a ceramic chapter ring on which the numerals, triangle and scale have been coated with Super-LumiNova®, making them easier to read in the dark. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal has anti-glare coating on both sides.
Another major change concerns the case: single-piece construction has been dropped, and instead, a helium valve at 4 o’clock allows any build-up of this gas to be released on decompression. In addition, the caseback is now transparent, revealing the AAA quality replica Omega Co-Axial 8912 automatic calibre boasting the brand’s exclusive arabesque Côtes de Genève finish. The movement is Master Chronometer Certified by Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), and meets stringent specifications, including resistance to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 Gauss. Its balance features a silicon hairspring and oscillates at 25,200 vibrations per hour; two series-mounted barrels provide a 60-hour power reserve. The automatic winding mechanism is bidirectional.
The Swiss copy Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M comes with a ‘Sharkproof’ brushed titanium Milanese mesh bracelet, combining comfort and strength. A dual-extension system with 18 positions allowing adjustment of up to 26mm enables it to be worn over a diving suit. The Omega replica for sale UK comes in a presentation box and is accompanied by an additional black rubber strap.
