Just as there are replicas of everything else from military memorabilia to designer handbags, so too are there replicas of fine watches, including Omega replica watch. As anyone who knows watches knows, Omega makes some wonderful timepieces.  Along with Rolex, Breitling and Longines, they are at the pinnacle of Swiss watch making.  Unfortunately, with such celebrity comes a high price tag.  A recent search of retailers turned up prices of anywhere from just over $2,000 for a Seamaster Planet Ocean model to well over $10,000 for a Constellation Double Eagle.  Whether any watch is worth that much is best left to opinion, but suffices to say, these prices are out of the reach for all but the most well-to-do.  If you love Omega watches but the price is too steep for you, you may want to consider an Omega replica watch.

Unjustifiable Bad Rep

It seems these days that an Omega replica watch would be an easy sell.  The economy is down, people love designer goods and quality, for the most part, has never been better. Blame it on the internet, but replica watches have gotten a bad reputation, perhaps worse than any other consumer good.  Of course, people’s email boxes these days are bursting with spam, mostly from China, claiming that you can buy best quality Rolexes for $20, so it is hard to blame them for feeling that way, but it does give the manufacturers of quality replicas a bad name, and one most undeserved.  Some of the Japanese manufactures of Omega replica watch turn out particularly fine pieces that while lacking the intricate mechanical workmanship of the Swiss product, are nonetheless quite serviceable and particularly attractive.

What’s wrong with a Replica?

Good question.  Basically nothing – provided you are buying quality.  It’s funny but some people seem to think it’s fine to buy a knock-off designer shirt or a copy of some famous sculpture for their dining room or a replica football or basketball jersey featuring the name and number of their favorite player, yet these same people are turned off by the prospect of buying an Omega replica watch – no matter how much they may love the genuine article.  But just as a musician is usually fine purchasing a Gibson Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster copy from a reputable manufacturer at a fraction of what they make pay for the “real deal”, so to is the average consumer going to be fine buying an Omega replica watch from a watch manufacturer with an equally solid reputation for quality.

Pricing

Without specifying exactly which Omega replica watch you are interested in purchasing, it’s impossible to nail down a price, but you should expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $200 for a quality Omega replica watch.  Of course, you can find less expensive copies elsewhere, but the old adage about getting what you pay for holds true here. It is always a good idea to buy from a company that has been in business for a while, that tends to prove that they are reliable.  It is also a good sign if their website provides contact information and accepts credit cards – this tends to indicate they are in business for the long haul, not a fly-by-night operation.  If you follow these simple tips you should be happy with your Omega replica watch that will be sure to serve you for years to come.
