Today, we’ve selected two watches from the new collection that, much to our surprise— the Replica Omega Seamaster 300 and the Seamaster Diver 300M.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300M
First, let me state that I have a lot of respect for the heritage-inspired Omega Seamaster 300. The contemporary 300 takes many design cues from the original Seamaster 300 ref. CK2913 from 1957.I enjoy my classics and the blend of vintage inspiration in modern watches, but the Seamaster 300 is not as funky or daring as some of the ’50s/’60s dive-watch revivals from other brands. And that’s precisely why I’d go for the neo-vintage-looking Seamaster Diver 300M.
A distinctively modern-looking diver
Creating a new aquatic watch concept 40 years after the first dive watches hit the shelves is no mean feat.Yet the Cheap Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Replica carves a niche and, with the 2018 updates, now stands proudly among the previously mentioned icons as a contemporary classic.
Some design aspects that make Diver 300M popular include the lyre lugs that gel nicely with the scalloped bezel. The curvaceous details flow into the polished ceramic bezel insert with a bold enamel (Grand Feu) diving scale. Its bezel numerals may look oversized, but this plays into the distinctive nature of the timepiece.
The wave-patterned dial is another design staple of the range, which has broadened over the years to become deep grooves laser cut into the ceramic ZrO2 dial. With the new ombré Summer Blue PVD treatment, the 75th-anniversary Diver 300M has a gradient finish to reflect its namesake 300m depth rating.
Among all the design traits, my favorite has to be the divisive skeletonized sword hands. With strips of light blue Super-LumiNova on the tips and edges, they remind me of flying kites on the beach.And going from my favorite feature to my least, there is the Seamaster Diver 300M First Copy Watches nine-row bracelet. The stainless steel bracelet is solid, and I like how the excessive ’90s design has stayed the course. But the lack of any tapering makes it an absolute brick to wear on smaller wrists.
An earlier Seamaster Diver 300M for me, please!
The bracelet includes technical features such as a comfort-adjustment mechanism and a dive-suit extension, but I can’t get it to work on my wrist. So that’s one point that I’ll give to Ben’s choice with its nicely tapering and simplified three-row Seamaster 300 bracelet. Furthermore, the current Seamaster Diver 300M’s 42mm stainless steel case is quite beefy overall, so I’d opt for a smaller ’90s reference.
The early Cheap Omega Replica are also a bit thinner, and I prefer the finer, more subtle embossed wave pattern on the dials from that era. But if I’m choosing between the new Summer Blue Diver 300M and Seamaster 300, I am still picking the more prominent, bolder, and less expensive (yet more capable) Diver 300M.
Omega Seamaster 300
The bracelet feels far more refined and classier on the 300. I also appreciate the exuberance of the Diver 300M’s bracelet, but many wearers opt to swap it for something more restrained or get the rubber strap instead. By contrast, the 300’s steel bracelet is comfortable and classic, nodding to the ’57 original. Although you don’t have the dive-suit extension on the Seamaster 300, the “push” extension adapts to wrist fluctuation.
The 300 is more subtle, I’ll grant you that, but the intricate details and Omega Replica Watches Shop DNA are all present and correct. For starters, you may not like the brushed steel slab sides of the case, but Omega worked tirelessly to squat the bezel ring down and raise the glass. This 3D layering approach gives the profile a nice snug feel for my 18cm wrists, which I can appreciate does not work for all wrist sizes. The lug polishing on top also blends into the bevels, which is another level of refinement over the Diver 300M.
A subtle refinement
My demerits of the Diver 300M relate to its shiny, slippery bezel. Seriously, even with dry fingers and guitar-sting calluses, I cannot easily turn that bezel. The scallops are not grippy enough to get traction, let alone under the waves with dive gloves. For most landlubbers, it’s probably not a factor how rotatable the bezel is.
Omega Swiss Replica Watches also uses the shiniest ceramic possible on the Diver 300M’s bezel.The Seamaster 300’s sandwich dial construction creates an excellent depth without the unnecessary texture of the Diver 300M’s wavy pattern. This simplified layout with minimal text only denoting the Omega branding and model name allows the gradated light blue/dark blue dial to shine through.
Letting the blue come through
With its seven lines of text, date window, and wavy pattern, the Diver 300M Quality Replica Watches breaks up the lovely dial color, preventing it from displaying the Summer Blue’s full potential. The 300’s symmetrical round case and conical crown silhouette may not be as recognizable as the Diver 300M, but its simple nature showcases all those glorious azzurri colors.
