Here’s why the 2008 UK top quality fake Omega Planet Ocean uk continues to be the watch I wear the most

What is it that makes a replica watch an ideal daily wearer? The requirements change from person to person without doubt, but there are a few essentials which should at least be considered – decent water resistance, legibility and reasonable accuracy. Occasionally, though, the right watch comes along and ends up stuck to your wrist whether logical or not. Though there was more heart than head involved, my 2008 Swiss movement copy Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ref. 2500.50.00 has now been my go-to watch for nearly two years running. Here’s why…

Throwing back to 11:59pm on December 31, 2019, I was sitting next to Albert Park Lake in Melbourne with my Planet Ocean NATO-strapped to my wrist. Regardless of the misplaced optimism I’d had for 2020, it was around this time my love for the watch had peaked. I’d acquired a healthy selection of straps for it, swapping them around almost every time I wore the watch, which kept it fresh and exciting. I’ve written about why I bought the watch before, at the same time as pouring out my adoration for Casino Royale, but my connection to high-end fake Omega Seamaster line goes much deeper.

I used to consider myself a one-watch person when I first found and restored my great-grandfather’s Omega Seamaster from 1958, a nice round 50 years before the Planet Ocean. But as much as I love that watch, I grew increasingly uneasy about wearing an heirloom vintage watch out and about, fearing that it would get scratched around as I work with live music in Victoria’s grungiest pubs. So, with James Bond and Chris Cornell blaring in my mind, I found a second-hand 42mm replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ref. 2500.50.00 from 2008 and bargained it down to the $3000AUD that I could afford at the time. I didn’t know too much about watches then, so I was lucky that the compact lyre-lugs enabled the relatively chunky watch to feel comfortable on my 17cm wrist.

Since then, the clone Omega Planet Ocean is the watch I reach for whenever I don’t have a particular style in mind. I take it to the office, the beach, the mountains, pubs, whatever. It just works. Though it pre-dates Omega’s in-house movement revolution, the ETA-base calibre 2500C functions beautifully and has the smoothest operating feel out of any watch I’ve ever owned. Plus, being a fan of the heritage Seamasters, I vastly prefer the sculpted Hippocampus on the caseback instead of the sapphire window.

Approaching 13 years of age, the luminous paint is still incredibly vibrant, rivalling that of my modern Seiko Turtle with the fan-favourite LumiBrite. It’s got plenty of scratches, mostly from my own use, and while the sapphire crystal isn’t damaged, the infamous exterior anti-reflective coating has taken a good beating. It’s currently running at +6 seconds per day, and may be soon due for a service, although I struggle to bear the thought of being without it for any length of time. While I do get some satisfaction from its resale value increasing from the day I bought it, this watch definitely falls into the “I’ll sell it over my dead body” category of my collection. Although my roster has expanded by a few cheap copy watches over the past 12 months, I have no doubt that this will be my most worn watch in 2021 as well.

High Quality UK Replica Omega’s America’s Cup Chronograph is a watch built for the high seas

Ahead of the 36th America’s Cup, anticipation has been building – and not just over who will claim victory. For the third time in its history, Omega replica is the official timekeeper of the world’s most prestigious sailing competition, so enthusiasts have been keen to see how the watch company will mark the start of the final race (having already announced its involvement in the event with a special America’s Cup Seamaster Planet Ocean released last year).

The resultant limited-edition aaa quality replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph is designed to work as smoothly as possible at sea. Soft-touch rubber pushers make it easier to use the watch in the thick of waves and spray and it also has a “Chrono Lock” system to batten down the chronograph function – that way knocking the watch while operating the boat doesn’t risk interfering with timekeeping.

Housed in a hard-wearing 44mm stainless-steel case, the Swiss movement Omega Seamaster copy watch continues its raison d’être into a number of nautical decorative touches, from the laser-engraved wave-patterned dial to the blue-on-white colour scheme of the bezel. There are also subtle nods to the race itself: the watch’s central seconds chronograph hand features a tiny silhouette of the America’s Cup on the counterweight and the case back is inscribed with “Auckland 2021”, the location for this year’s clash.
The cup is the oldest international sporting trophy in the world, dating back to 1851 when the Royal Yacht Squadron raced a yacht named “America” around the Isle Of White; “America” won and the cup was named after her and awarded to her owners at the New York Yacht Club (NYYC). Since then, various yacht clubs around the world have sought to wrest the cup from the previous race’s holders, although it took until 1983 for an Australian team to finally claim victory, after the dominant Americans defeated 24 challengers in a row.

The race has long attracted watchmakers. Since the 1980s, an array of brands have aligned themselves with various teams of both challengers and defenders, including Hublot, Ulysse Nardin, Panerai, Audemars Piguet and, of course, Omega clone, which has sponsored Team New Zealand for the past quarter century.

This year, the Italian team, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, will challenge Emirates Team New Zealand in Auckland in a best-of-13 series of races around a 3km course. Coincidentally, the last time the two teams met was in 2000, when Omega had its first outing as race timekeeper. The New Zealanders will be hoping for a repeat result; they won that series 5-0. But, for Omega collectors, an attractive new perfect fake Omega Seamaster will be victory enough.
