The biggest is the Speedmaster name, it’s a Omega Replica Speedmaster CK2998 – the watch that went to the moon – and that will never get worn out. Second, despite the many iterations the look hews closely enough to the original to be recognisable. And of course it helps that they are generally affordable, relatively speaking.
While the CK2998 remake has all the key details of the original, the blue and silver colour scheme is new, and handsome. The look is that of a new Omega Replica Watches with a hint of vintage, rather than trying too hard to mimic the original.
Notably the new CK2998 has a more nuanced finish than the original, a common feature of modern remakes given better manufacturing technology. The Omega Replica minute track on the outermost edge of the dial, for instance, is finished with a fine concentric guilloche that’s invisible except up close.
The steel case is 39.7 mm in diameter with straight lugs and a 19 mm-wide strap, just like the original. But it has the precise finish that’s distinct to modern watches, with brushed flanks and polished top surfaces. The case back, on the High Quality Omega Replica Watches other hand, is a modern addition, embossed with a hobnail finish and a relief Speedmaster seahorse logo.
Underneath the case back is the Swiss Quality Cheap Omega Fakes calibre 1861, the hand-wound movement that’s found in the basic Moonwatch models.
Replica Watches Omega made a splash with the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon three years ago, a variant of the Moon Watch made entirely of black ceramic. Now offered in white and all the colours in between, the ceramic case of the Speedmaster was merely the start.
Available in four variants – with the top the line being the black ceramic and 18k Sedna red gold – the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black Copy Watches features all of Omega’s latest case technology. The 45.5mm ceramic case has a black ceramic metal insert with markings in Liquidmetal, a specialised amorphous metal alloy. On the red and blue versions of the Deep Black, the bezel also has coloured rubber inlays to mark the first 15 minutes.
Another difference between the versions is the Omega Replica Watches case finish: the red and blue have brushed case surfaces, while the black and gold models are polished.
The dial is black ceramic, mirror polished on the black and gold versions, but matte on the blue and red models. But regardless of the variant, the Omega Replica hands and hour markers are 18k white gold. The second time zone hand is tipped with an orange arrow, with the 24-hour second time zone scale on the inner flange of the dial.
The case back is also ceramic, and unusually for the material, the back screws in the case. Thanks to what Omega Replica Watches terms Naiad Lock, the back sits perfectly aligned with the case.
The strap is rubber, moulded to resemble fabric on the front, and attached to a black ceramic coating folding clasp.
