Best Quality Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre” Replica Watches With Blue Dials

A short recap, Bond
Yet before we get into our main topic, it’s been a while since our last Sunday Morning Showdown. The fake Omega Speedmaster World Cup has occupied this space, and we are glad to see many readers lend their vote to their Speedy of choice. We hope you agreed with the eventual winner, the Speedmaster Calibre 321. Try and cast your mind back to the last two Showdowns, and it’s not looking too good for Ben. Jorg’s Breguet Type XXI took a marginal win over the Blancpain Air Command at 51%. But the Tudor Chrono S&G slaughtered the new 2020 Breitling Chronomat with 58% playing 42%. That is Ben’s actual Frecce Tricolori you just slandered.
No Time To Spectre
Like the grainy black and white opening to Casino Royale (2006), Ben is battered and bruised and lying on the bathroom floor. Even so, he still musters the energy to rise, take aim, and let the music play. Jorg, on the other hand, is practicing his evil laugh, stroking a Persian cat, and waiting for the plucky Brit to miss the target once again. But today’s showdown might just be a fair fight as Jorg and Ben are dueling with Omega watches that feature prominently in the two most recent Daniel Craig spy thrillers. In his arsenal, Jorg has the yet unseen No Time To Die (2021) Omega Seamaster Diver 300M in titanium. Ben thinks he has a straight shot with the heritage-infused best quality replica Omega Seamaster 300 last seen in Spectre (2015).

Grab a martini, cock your Walther PPK, and watch the Showdown unfold. If you think the Bond puns stop here, think again, agent.

Spectre (2015) Fake Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial Chronometer With NATO Strap
Omega has featured prominently in Bond movies since the Brosnan-era. Adorning Bond’s wrist has been the Seamaster Diver 300M, the Planet Ocean, and Aqua Terra. In 2015, the 24th EON Productions Bond film, Spectre, went a different direction. The then newly reintroduced Seamaster 300 took styling cues from the very first Seamaster 300 ref. CK2913 from 1957. The 300 wasn’t the first Seamaster but instead the inaugural model in the range purpose-built for diving. Dubbing it the “300” was a bold statement as Omega could only rate it to 200 meters. But that was the limitation of the testing equipment rather than the potential performance. When the producers were looking for 007’s next wrist gadget, the Master Co-Axial Chronometer Seamaster 300 made perfect sense.
But the prop department didn’t simply take an existing Seamaster as it was shown in the Omega catalog. For the first time, Omega designed this watch specifically for the silver screen. Omega Seamaster 300 ref. replica kept the ceramic bezel, but the Liquidmetal™ numerals use a 12-hour scale rather than the traditional 60-minute dive graduations. By turning the bi-directional bezel, the 00 Agent can track the additional time-zone of his elusive target. It also starts to deviate quite a lot from the CK2913 by not having the 12 that usually accompanies the 3, 6, and 9 on the dial. The Omega logo is much larger and occupies this space, seemingly to showcase greater emphasis on the branding to cinema-goers. Lastly, what differentiates this “Spectre” edition from the regular timepiece is the lollipop tip of the central seconds hand.

My Favorite Fake Omega Speedmaster is a 1992 Reference 3590.50 With Black Dial

After graduating from college, I took a sales job for an internet software company. I stopped driving my 1965 MGB to the office. I didn’t sell the old British roadster but my daily driver was now a BMW. The lucrative nature of my job allowed me to indulge in more tasteful clothes, as did my desire to put an appropriate timepiece on my wrist. I remembered having read a piece in a magazine about how a gentleman should dress. The most memorable point was that a gentleman does not wear a plastic watch with a suit. And then I remembered Jimmy’s luxury fake Omega Speedmaster.

In 1992, with some of the proceeds from my next commission check, I drove to a local Omega dealer and bought a Omega Speedmaster ref.3590.50 replica with black bezel on the spot. I did no research, knew nothing about the version, its movement, or anything about the watch other than the fact that it was a derivation of the first and only watch suitable for manned space flight.

Nearly 30 years of ownership
For almost two decades it was the only watch I wore, and I wore it daily. As an avid collector of vintage motorcycles and cars, I didn’t have the energy (or disposable income) to build a watch collection and thus didn’t pay much attention to them. My wife gave me a Pepsi GMT Master-II, and I acquired a Heuer Carrera Panamericana Edition, but my watch collection remained small, and always anchored by the best quality copy Omega Speedmaster 3590.50.

After years of wearing it with the original stainless bracelet, I decided to wear it on a black leather strap made by Hirsch. The watch was serviced several times over the decades, but a few years back it stopped working. The local Omega dealer sent it to the Omega Service Center in Southern California with the verdict that in addition to a few internal failures, the case was corroded and would need to be replaced.

Servicing and replacement parts
I was certainly not willing to accept the dealer’s offer of a trade on a new Swiss made fake Omega Speedmaster. As such, I decided to go ahead with the full service. I requested that the original case be returned to me. However, I was disappointed when in addition to the case and case back coming back, so too did the hands and crown! I’m still not an expert watch observer/collector, but I know originality matters, and I love patina. The watch has changed a lot in the nearly 30 years that I’ve owned it, but then so have I, and regardless of the fact that it’s got some new parts, it still has the same heart and soul and remains my favorite watch in my collection.

I’ve added a few more watches to my collection. A Chopard Mille Miglia GMT/Chrono and a couple of Hamilton khaki models have joined the stable. But one thing remains constant. I still find myself coming home to the one that fits me like an old pair of boots. That’s my cheap fake Speedmaster 3590.50. And oh yeah, I still have my Gruen Curvex.
