As a design trademark, twisted lugs are almost synonymous with Swiss made fake Omega’s tool or sports watches. The watch lines that initially received the treatment in the 1950s and ’60s — Seamaster, Speedmaster, and Railmaster — still utilize the design today. The Seamaster 300 (ref. ST165.024) was UK perfect replica Omega’s dive watch from the ’60s and had twisted lugs that spruced up the bulky tool case. It can still be found for sale, but decent-quality specimens easily run upwards of $5,000.
As it did in the 1960s, AAA quality replica Omega’s modern Seamaster line includes both tool replica watches for sale uk and daily, dressier watches. The Aqua Terra, Diver 300M, and Planet Ocean lines all use lyre lugs. It’s only the Heritage models that hark back to before the mid-1960s that have straight lugs. Today, the Railmaster line is nestled within the luxury fake Omega Seamaster collection, but rest assured that its watches have twisted lugs as well.
1:1 super clone Omega’s Speedmaster line obviously still employs the style. It’s such a strong element of the original Moonwatches that have sustained Omega throughout the years that it would be unthinkable for them not to have twisted lugs. As with the Seamaster line, the only Speedmaster watches without them are certain Heritage models like the FOIS (First Omega In Space) whose designs date from before the shift to twisted lugs or Heritage models that departed from the traditional Speedmaster case at some point, such as the Mark II. Even some of Swiss movement fake Omega’s futuristic watches employ the lyre lugs, like the Skywalker X-33. The Spacemaster Z-33, however, has no lugs, going the way of a no-nonsense ultimate tool. This is the case for the best copy Omega Ploprof as well, the Seamaster equivalent to the Z-33.
The lugs themselves don’t vary much from one another. The profile features the iconic straight taper down towards the strap or bracelet, leaving all the curves to the actual twist. The proportions change from watch to watch, with small ladies’ high quality fake Omega Seamaster Aqua Terras appearing to have longer, stretching lugs whereas some men’s models appear somewhat stubby as they sweep in to meet a 20mm-wide strap.
It’s with the Diver 300M line that one sees any real variation. These watches feature twisted lugs that curve out towards the bracelet or strap, adding some flair to the design and curve to the overall profile. All in all, Swiss movement fake Omega’s twisted lugs are measured exercises in design, continuing to breathe life into a concept the brand got very right in the 1960s.
