Way back in 1957, Omega introduced the original Seamaster 300. This was one of the first real dive watches, designed for people who spend a lot of time underwater. After nearly 65 years, it remains one of the most popular dive watches on the market, and it’s inspired other Omega lines.
But dive watches have changed a lot since the 1950s, and modern customers expect different performance and features. The latest and greatest Omega Seamaster 300 Replica Watches UK from the Heritage line marries this modern functionality with old-school, vintage appeal.
Among other upgrades, you’ll find a chronometer-grade movement, which makes the Seamaster 300 more accurate than many popular dive watches. Even so, you’ll still enjoy the same basic design, including the original blue and black dials.
A Throwback ‘50s Dial
The dial is not a single back plate, but a combination of two, also called a sandwich dial. The first board is completely coated with blue Super LumiNova paint. On the Omega 1:1 replica watches other hand, the top plate is black, but it has cutouts for Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. These numbers are located closer to the center of the dial, with additional triangular cutouts on the outside of the five-minute mark.
The hour hand adopts a short arrow-shaped design, and the tip emits blue light to match the markings on the dial. The minute hand is slightly longer and thinner with green highlights to make it popular. At the same time, the second hand is a copy of the original seahorse. It is mostly very fine, like a needle, but with a dot on the tip with a blue lumen finish.
A Rugged Stainless Steel Case
The stainless steel case of the Cheap Omega Replica Seamaster 300 is polished and high-glossed, with a total width of 41 mm and a lug width of 21 mm. It has a scratch-resistant surface, but it is smoother and lighter than ceramic. This is a return to the Seahorse Diver 300M 007 version, but it is a welcome touch. The numbers are coral, and the luminous finish glows blue in the dark. The dot at 12 o’clock was changed to glow green to improve readability.
The single crown has a flared design, and the tip is wider than the bottom. It uses a screw-in design to prevent accidentally being pulled out, and the knurling provides a firm grip. This, together with the knurling on the bezel, represents the only non-smooth part of the design. The domed sapphire crystal makes the watch slightly thicker than the original thickness, 13.85 mm.
Like other products in the Omega Replica Watches series, the case is waterproof to 300 meters. This makes it a true diving watch, capable of reaching any depth beyond the submersible.
Omega 8912 Movement
The beating heart of the new Seamaster 300 is the Omega 8912 movement. The diameter of the movement is 29 mm, so it is narrower than you might expect from the case. But size is not everything, and the movement does perform very well. It provides a 60-hour power reserve and beats at a frequency of 25,200 beats per hour. At the same time, the current coaxial escapement provides excellent precision for many automatic movements.
2 Types of Straps
Omega Seamaster 300 first copy watches comes with two different types of straps, depending on the style of dial you buy. My black version comes with a brown calfskin strap. It has a smooth finish, ridges on both edges, and stitches near the lugs are reinforced. The clasp is a simple stainless steel buckle, but effective enough, the low-key design will not distract the dial’s attention.
On the other hand, the blue model is equipped with a three-ring stainless steel bracelet. The Omega grade replica watches links are nice and tight, and won’t pinch you like other bracelets. The chain links also have different widths, tapering from the 21 mm to 16 mm buckle at the lug. Instead of using a polished center link and a brushed outer link, the opposite pattern is used, using a brushed center link and a polished link on the outside.
