Besides the brand new Seamaster 300m dive watches, Omega has released another model to pay tribute to Seamaster collection’s 70th birthday. They are the Omega Seamaster 1948 Limited Edition, reproducing the classic original Seamaster created in 1948. The precious copy watches are limited to only 1948 pieces.
Seamaster could be regarded as one of the most popular dive watches nowadays.In fact, the collection was originally unveiled in formal watches. Firstly, let’s see what the original Seamaster look like. Featuring in 34mm case, solid convex lugs, central second hand and small second hand,it is the inspiration of the new model, getting welcomed by its great reliability and waterproofness.
This is not the first time that Omega reproduces the original Seamaster. In 2012, the limited edition Omega Seamaster London Olympic Games have been released, which were designed with silvered ivory dials, sub-dial at 6 o’clock and the black leather strap. The model was equipped with Omega Calibre 2202 co-axial movement.
Six years later, Omega has reproduced both the two models of original Omega Seamaster which are of different layout of dials. One is designed with central second hand and the other one is with a sub-dial at 6 o’clock which is indeed the one I introduce today. 38mm Omega Seamaster imitation are designed in simplicity, which can be figured out from the compact silvered dial, the simple hour markers and track which is exactly the same with the original ones.
Equipped with Calibre 8804, which has been certificated by METAS Master Chronometer, resistance to magnetic field up to 15,000 guass, Omega fake with silvered ivory dial is able to provide a power reserve of 60 hours. Fixed by the unique improved “Naiad” system, the caseback has been ensured security. The caseback is laser engraved and lacquered by hand with a Chris-Craft boat and Gloster Meteor aircraft, paying tribute to many aviators and mariners.
