As always, I’m sure this will stir up some controversy, so let me have it in the comments section. Feel free to bring in comparisons with the best quality replica watches Bond wore before Craig’s steely-eyed tenure, but for the sake of clarity, I’m going to leave them out of this list (almost as if they didn’t exist in this 007 universe… Almost…).
Fake Omega Seamaster 300M Co-Axial Chronometer 41mm, reference 2220.80.00
Omega Seamaster 2220.80.00 fake for men gets a lot of screen time during one of the most memorable scenes of Daniel Craig’s debut. In Casio Royale, facing off against Mads Mikkelson’s Le Chiffre and quietly spurred on to victory by Eva Green’s unforgettable Vesper Lynd (don’t believe me? Ask Bond), the Swiss made replica Omega UK plays its own starring role. While most watch nerds wouldn’t have thought to pair a big stainless steel Omega dive watch with black tie attire, Craig somehow pulls it off.
The watch lands on this list because of its size. The 41mm Omega Seamaster copy for men was replaced by a slightly bigger brother in 2018. Honestly, the new model is superior in almost every way, but if the size had stayed at 41mm, or even shrunk to 40, I think it might have been an even bigger success. This aaa quality fake Omega is decidedly old school, but it stirs a real nostalgia in me that I can’t deny.
Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial 42mm, reference 184.108.40.206.01.004
Many would argue Skyfall is the best movie of Craig’s five-film run. I actually have it third on the list (despite feeling it gets better every time I watch it), and it fares similarly in the watch stakes. The UK Omega Seamaster replica watches Paypal beat the Planet Ocean entrants from Casino Royale and Quantum hands down for one very simple reason: the movement.
Both the 45.5mm Casino Royale Planet Ocean and the 42mm super clone Omega Planet Ocean Quantum of Solace was powered by the less-often-seen-these-days caliber 2500. Caliber 2500 was a modified ETA movement and is famous for being the most ubiquitous Co-Axial caliber of its day. It was, however, always a work in progress and top Swiss fake Omega came up with four separate iterations of George Daniels’s co-axial mechanism (known as 2500A, 2500B, 2500C, and, you guessed it, 2500D).
The A and B weren’t very good at all, to be honest, and were quickly replaced by the C, which spent the longest uninterrupted run as the go-to co-axial caliber before the radically different D movement (that I think looks badass thanks to a totally redesigned escape wheel) trumped it.
Soon, though, caliber 8500 was introduced. This was designed to be perfect fake Omega’s first purpose-built co-axial caliber and it bested its predecessor in every way. It heralded a new dawn for cheap copy Omega’s in-house movement production and defined an aesthetic that everyone now expects from the brand.
