The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Limited Edition Skyfall replica is without doubt one of the best watch replicas that have ever been made. When we hear an Omega reference in pop culture there is clearly only one name that pops up in our head, and that is James Bond, the famous agent 007 and that entire franchise. The collaboration between the Swiss watch makers and the Bond movies began in 1995 when Pierce Brosnan wore an Omega watch in GoldenEye. No James Bond movies since has been without its Omega watch, and the newest installment in the series is no different with Daniel Craig sporting the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Limited Edition Skyfall.

There isn’t a better deal out there, a precise well-built watch that has the same built quality as the original at a fraction of the cost, while maintaining the unique flair that a watch made for a super spy has.

The watch that makes us think of Cinderella-like stories where the hero from humble beginnings manages to achieve an important status while remaining true to its own style. The Omega De Ville started as a simple line of blue collar watches in the 60s that were not meant for the higher class. Over the years, the same collection has become one of the most valued amongst the Omega brand as well as other big luxury manufacturers in the whole world. With such a nice story behind it, the Omega De Ville is proud to introduce new models to the collection that will have the new in-house calibre 9300 and 9301 movements.

The new models come in either 18-carat red gold or stainless steel and while the materials are very different, both versions look perfect. The red gold version is considered the top of its line and at a price of $29,000, it isn’t meant for everybody. It is important to notice that this expensive watch actually looks expensive and that it has some very interesting micro-mechanics that make it more than just a pretty face amongst its high-valued competitors.

For those that are looking for something a bit more affordable but still get the 42mm of style and class, the stainless steel version will be just perfect. This will just set you back $8,300-9,000 and it keeps the same modern lines and precise movement.

Everything from the refined design to the golden hands indicating the roman numerals represents a certain quality and luxury for which the whole collection has become known over the years, despite its humble beginnings. Depending on the version, there are three dials available; black silver and blue.

Aside from its looks, the new De Ville watches come with a tri-level co-axial escapement that is considered one of the most stable ones on the market. It offers a high performance and reliable readings for a very long time so it can easily be considered a collector’s item; especially if we are talking about the red gold version. Considered by some to be the best of it class, the new models will surely find their place in the respected collection.

Luxury watches have a certain classic style about them that makes them timeless but this doesn’t mean that new models can’t demand attention. On the contrary actually, big luxury watch manufacturers, such as Omega, have to keep up with the times and offer new versions of existing models or even come up with something from scratch. When talking about Omega watches, the Seamaster is one of the most popular and it was the choice of James Bond ever since GoldenEye.

There are now fifty years since the first James Bond movie was released and to mark this occasion, Omega introduced a true collector’s piece, an update from the original Seamaster Diver 300m that would keep up with the changing image of Agent 007 but also keep true to his unique style.

The special edition James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece is available in two sizes, for men and for women, 41mm and 36.25mm. Made out of stainless steel and with ceramic bezel rings, the watches are truly beautiful and they represent the movie legend perfectly. There are some special touches that keep remembering people why this watch is so special; for example, there are diving scales on the bezel and the number 50 is red while the others are silver. There is also the 007 pattern on the dial and the smaller version has a diamond index for the 7 mark. The back case is very interesting with the gun barrel design and the back of a bullet right in the center that has “James Bond 50 years” engraved on it.

Both versions have the same movement, the calibre 2507 self-winding with a Co-Axial escapement and are a ready to go to great depths or be fashionable for any event. There is also a helium escape valve that allows decompression when diving and, as the name implies, the watch is water resistant for up to 300 m.

The watch is only available in a limited edition, 11,007 for the 41mm version and 3,007 for the 36.25mm version so not every James Bond fan will manage to get their hands on one. The final verdict is that the anniversary update looks incredible with a lot of details that pay homage to the famous spy.

Omega is definitely a master when it comes to luxury watches and this can be seen in every model that bears the logo. This Swiss manufacturer, founded in 1848, is one of the most recognized brands in the world and besides their beautiful designs, they are also proud to have such a rich legacy that includes both NASA and James Bond, a combination not found with many brands. Being a master means always trying to reach perfection and although some say that Omega has done this and then some, we still have the pleasure of having new models to admire.

The first master we are going to talk about is the Omega Seamaster, a perfect representative of luxury and practicality. This timepiece may remind you of James Bond because it was the choice for the movie hero since GoldenEye, before that, 007 used an Omega Submariner. The Seamaster is water resistant for up to 1200 meters due to an ingenious technical feature that allows helium out to balance the pressure. Although Omega is known for making watches for professional divers, they also pay extra attention to the style and, as homage to this tradition, they announced the release of the Omega Planet Ocean. If there is one watch manufacturer that rules the sea, it has to be Omega.

The second master from Omega is the Speedmaster, the choice of NASA for their space expeditions. Being the first watch on the moon was a huge accomplishment for Omega and they earned to honor with the precision of the Speedmaster. Now, Omega gas announced a new addition to the Speedmaster collection, a limited edition Moonwatch Apollo 15 that marks 40 years since the expedition.

Although there is a lot of history in both of these watches, the status symbol that an Omega watch gives to the one that wears it is what makes people want to have one.

What’s the number one watch anybody knows when it comes to important events? It’s Omega of course, the watch that took us to the Moon and came up with new materials that revolutionized watch making.

A Swiss company watch manufacturer, Omega has been in the watch making industry since 1848. Besides being the first choice of NASA when they went to the Moon, this company has been involved in major events and major advertising campaigns. We probably all remember that Omega was the watch James Bond was wearing and it was the official watch for major sports events such as The Olympic Games and it sponsored so many good athletes.

When it comes to celebrity watches, Omega is probably one of the most popular and it has been seen on the wrists of so many respected people such as: Prince William of Weals, John F. Kennedy, George Clooney and even Mao Zedong who apparently wore an Omega watch for 31 years. It seems that Omega watches are not just time pieces and the fact that they were worn by so many influential people makes them even more prestigious.

Some of the most popular models were Omega Seamaser Quartz Professional, worn by Pierce Brosnan in James Bond and also Omega Constellation, a watch that has been for over 48 years in the Omega collection and it’s still one of the favorite ones. Let’s not forget ladies watches from the Constellation collection and the Speedmaster collection, both collection having beautiful pieces.

Omega is indeed a great company and it will remain one of the most influential watch companies in history because it managed to be a part of some of the most important events in the world. A high end company, Omega inspires elegance and class so make sure that you understand the prestige that comes with its watches.

Omega watches are mostly popular because they have been seen in major events like the Olympic Games or golf tournaments. Another important appearance of this brand in the media was probably when it was worn by James Bond in the famous movies.

But Omega Company is not just famous because they managed to have good advertisement. They are extremely famous for managing to revolutionize the watches industry with their research and new innovative methods to produce watches. They incorporated the co-axial escapement in mass produced watches, which was one of the most significant improvements in the watch industry. Another important event was the 1937 launch of the first waterproof watches, obviously an extremely important revolution in their field.

The first range of automatic watches for series production was another big event and great achievement of Omega. The first official electronic recording was also an event linked t Omega which managed to record electronically during the European Championship in 1966. Another invention was a sort of Touchpad technology that was used by swimmers who were using their fingertips pressure to activate it and this was happening in 1967, way beyond this technology was implemented in other electronic devices. Their more recent invention includes a technology called Liquidmetal a sort of metal made from a zirconium based allow combined with ceramics. This allows for better movement and longevity when it comes to watch manufacturing.

Also, let’s not forget that Omega was the first watch brand that reached the moon, which definitely gives it a spot in history. Omega watches will remain forever in our minds not just because they were there for us during important times but also because their incredible design is hard to forget. We should also ad that without Omega, a lot of watch technologies nowadays wouldn’t exist because they managed to come up with amazing ways to improve watches.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you mention replica watches?  If you are like most people these days, it’s the spam emails that fill up your junk mail folder that scream about “Rep1ica Ro1ex Watches – 39.99”, or something along similar lines. To be sure, there is an explosion of cheap replica watches rolling off the assembly lines in China and other developing Asian markets, but quality replica watches have long been available from more mature markets such as Japan and Taiwan.

Replica vs. Real Thing

Unfortunately replica watches have gotten a bad rep as the market has been flooded with cheap knockoffs being sold for literally a few dollars. The fact of the matter is that replica watches have been around for quite a while and quality replica watches from reputable manufacturers can often last as long and keep time as well as the real thing from Switzerland. Take the typical OMEGA watch for example.  A consumer would expect to pay, say, $7,000 U.S. for an OMEGA Speedmaster watch.  What you are paying for, of course, is primarily the prestige of the name, but also the intricate Swiss mechanical movement inside.  Now such movements are quite reliable, and when well cared for, can last for a lifetime.  But shock and other risk factors can cause such movements to fail.  Quality replica watches on the other hand typically employ quartz or other electronic movements, which are equally accurate, but less prone to damage.  So, you take your chances with a mechanical $7,000 genuine OMEGA watch or a rugged quality replica watch for $130.  The better choice is pretty clear.

Quality vs. Quantity

Replica watches obviously vary in quality. Most people would no sooner buy a $40 Rolex being offered online by a Chinese mass retailer than would buy a car missing an engine, but the appeal is understandable.  If you could get a Rolex or Longines or OMEGA watch – or quality replica watch that looks just like it – at a reasonable price, for the admirer of fine timepieces, that’s an attractive offer.  Unfortunately, most replica manufacturers tend to go for quantity over quality. They figure if they can sell enough of their junk, they can make up for their lack of quality.  It’s a good thing that there are still manufacturers of quality replica watches out there that take pride in the work they do and strive to satisfy the customer. These companies have every bit the pride in the work they do that the Swiss companies have at a fraction of the cost.

Pricing

Quality replica watches are typically not “cheap” in terms of either price or workmanship.  You could easily find a less expensive watch in a big box discount store, but if you are looking for a watch with the Swiss name and the associated prestige, you should expect to pay between $100 and $200 for a quality replica watch.  When looking for a retailer for your quality replica watch online, you want to look for a retailer that has contact information – meaning he or she is not hiding behind the website with no way for a customer to get in contact with them – and preferably one that accepts credit cards, on the off chance that there is a dispute.  As long as you don’t abuse it, you should be happy with your quality replica watch for many years to come.
