The UK Perfect Replica Omega Seamaster 300 That Redefines The Term ‘Vintage-Inspired’
Social media has had a profound effect on fake watch taste, collecting, and the entire hobby in general. Where it used to be that you would walk into a watch shop, eyeball something under the counter and buy it purely because you liked it – now there’s all manner of other external factors to consider. Will it look good in photos? Will people click the “like” button? Will I gain followers? Is it a hot watch? While I’ve done my darnedest to steer clear of this realm of horological intrigue, I’ve definitely noticed its creeping effects. And so, for this edition of A Week on the Wrist, I opted for a luxury super clone watch which seems to have been born out of these conditions.
Released in 2021, the updated perfect replica Omega Seamaster 300 represents the brand’s full lean into the vintage-inspired game. This is not the first time Omega has gone this route. We need only look at the Seamaster Railmaster, the First Omega in Space, or even the preceding Omega 300 line to see how we got here.
But those copy watches online never took the vintage ideal all the way over the goal line. The Railmaster manages to mix modern design aesthetics with vintage tones to evoke the history of a rather esoteric model range. The First Omega in Space basically recreates a historical Speedmaster model, but forgoes the use of faux-patina. The now-discontinued range of pre-2021 Omega Seamaster 300 replica watches for sale were similar to the Railmaster in their attempt to evoke the feel of original 300 divers, but also included dial text that felt entirely modern, as well as liquid metal ceramic bezels.
This new 1:1 fake Omega Seamaster 300 takes a page out of Tudor’s playbook and opts to look back in the rearview in order to move forward. The result is vintage-effect lume (known as “old radium”), matte dials, and aluminum bezels paired with an old-school-style bracelet.
New to this UK cheap copy Omega is the Panerai-style sandwich dial, which adds increased depth and visual interest. It also does away with the “showy” dial text, opting – much like the vintage Seamaster 300s of old – to feature a single line that reads, Seamaster 300 … and that’s it.
I look at this watch as the apex of vintage-inspired design as a whole. If we were building a line graph to map out the trajectory of the vintage-inspired aesthetic, the Seamaster 300 might just be the peak. It’s all downhill from here. It’s as if Swiss made replica Omega brass has been scrolling through Instagram to distill down what would make the perfect social media watch.
Is this that watch? I don’t know, but it definitely ticks the necessary boxes. Vintage charm, faux-patina, depth to the dial markers, matte textures, and it’s a steel sports watch. Clearly, high quality fake Omega is doing their grassroots research.
To my mind the newest AAA replica Omega Seamaster 300 is – well – an Instagram watch. It may not be the most legible, but it photographs well. And if it’s “likes” and “follows” you’re after – this might be your watch.
Instagram is very much the reason we are looking at this piece today. The high quality fake Omega Seamaster 300 (retail price: $6,500) may have come out in 2021, but over time, the blue dial model has developed a bit of a reputation as a hype piece. I set out to check its bona fides.
