The first watch on the list is an oddball watch that I have loved ever since it came out in 2003. The 1:1 fake Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Apnea ref. 2595.30.00 is a tribute to the legendary French freediver Jacques Mayol, also known as “Dolphin Man.” Mayol and super clone Omega UK had a long-lasting partnership that resulted in a series of Seamaster 120M watches in the 1980s.
I picked the 37mm “Maxi” version of that series for the best replica Omega watches from the 1980s. What is so special about this Seamaster Apnea from 2003 is that Mayol helped develop the watch. Unfortunately, he never got to see the fruits of his labor, as he passed away in 2001. It turned the Swiss copy watch into a tribute to Mayol when it came out two years after.
The 41.5mm stainless steel Omega Seamaster replica for men is characterized by its Seamaster presence but completely out-of-the-ordinary dial design and complication. The case is chunky at 16.5mm thick and has a 49mm lug-to-lug and a 22mm lug width. The Swiss made fake watches came with either a black dial or a silver dial. Usually, I would pick a black dial, but for this watch specifically, the only way to go is the silver, slightly textured dial. It’s easier on the eye in combination with the red accents. Additionally, the dial features applied hour markers, compared to printed markers on the regular models.
The AAA fake Omega Seamaster Apnea also came with the choice of a rubber strap or a toned-down version of what many consider the era’s “Speedmaster bracelet”. This bracelet was different from the fancier bracelet found on models like the Brosnan Bond-era Seamasters, but Swiss movement fake Omega did use it on several Seamaster models. While the Seamaster Apnea does looks good on different straps, the modern styling of the case in combination with the bracelet is stunning.
A freediver complication
As the Omega Seamaster Apnea fake for sale was part of the Seamaster Chronograph range, it features a chronograph function that is operated with the pushers as usual. It features a unidirectional diving bezel and model-unique hands, as you can see. Despite their look, they are not screw-down pushers, so you have instant access to the chronograph function. So what is this freediving complication that luxury replica Omega and Mayol worked on? As you can see, the dial has seven apertures that turn from silver to red if the chronograph is running. After every minute, one of the apertures turns red, and after a total of seven minutes, they start to change back to silver. So it creates a timer that indicates 14 minutes on the dial, the time of a dive that only the best freedivers can pull off.
To realize this complication, perfect replica Omega UK created the automatic caliber 3601. It was based on an ETA 2892-A2 that Omega heavily modified. The movement operates at 28,800vph and has 39 jewels with a 44-hour power reserve. Top Swiss fake Omega placed the specially developed chronograph module on top of the movement to equip it with the freediving complication.
The added module is the reason for the thicker case. Overall, the cheap fake Omega Seamaster Apnea is a fascinating watch both technically and aesthetically. I love the looks of this high quality copy Omega and would gladly add one to my collection at some point. Finding one is not tough, although there are never many on offer. Expect to see prices between €2,5K and €3K for one, which is not a lot of money for such a special piece commemorating such a special human being.
