First produced in 1970 and later relaunched in 2009, the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer replica watches– as it is today called – is one of the world’s most unique and, yes, iconic dive watches. It quite remains the Quasimodo character today, even among professional dive watches, which admittedly have a tendency of getting rather lairy-looking from time to time. But there is charm – and a lot of it – to go with the Ploprof and its, well, “developed taste” looks. This new model for 2016 – originally debuted in 2015 in different colors – is lighter, more rugged, and more refined than the Ploprof ever has been; so let’s see how it faired over an extended period of wear.
Here’s a contradiction. One would think that the luxury watch industry – with its self-imposed-luxurious price levels, exquisite movement decorations and delicate case finishing – has in every practical way detached itself from the original notion and practicality of its historical products, the very products it has taken as inspiration and elevated to those aforementioned levels of quality, refinement, and (un-)affordability.
Yet,Omega cheap fake watches UK lovers around the world (including the one typing this) will forever love a strong connection between modern and historical pieces, and drift towards luxury watches that imply (or, in the case of the Ploprof: scream) “Purpose Built” at them. There is this almost intangible longing for a luxury product that says it can go deeper, faster, harder while being lighter, more robust and reliable than it ever was – even if their true purpose in life is to perform desk diving missions (a most descriptive term for their true use), and, sadly, in some cases to impress yahoos… All that enjoy utmost priority to actual technicalities like smartly releasing helium atoms through levels of decompression from deep-dive military tasks.
So, what’s a 55 by 48 millimeter wide replica Omega watches UK, super weird, form follow function shaped, titanium and ZrO2 ceramic encased, 1.2 kilometer water resistant, anti-magnetic watch with a price tag above $13,000 doing in 2016? What it is doing is ticking all those boxes I mentioned: it mixes luxury levels of refinement with purpose-built looks. This doesn’t mean that it’s for everyone – how could it possibly be, when it’s so over the top? But new models added every year to the Ploprof collection prove that, thankfully, there is demand for this kind of stuff.
It was at BaselWorld 2014 that Omega debuted the new Omega speedmaster X-33 series replica watches UK, which we referred to as “the real heir to the cult favorite Omega X-33 aviation/aerospace watch of the 1990s.” Now, as a new-for-2015 version we have the Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition, which adds what first appears to be a stunning color combination that links this space-age watch to an interesting project called Solar Impulse.
We were excited to go hands-on with the new X-33 in 2014, a version with a case and bracelet in grade 2 titanium and a color scheme that overall appeared to be mono-chromatic – save for a splash of red on the seconds hand. With the Solar Impulse limited edition the X-33 receives a much more colorful outfit and one that, with its deep blues and vibrant greens, is admittedly more linked to planet Earth than the cold nothingness of outer space.
While the 45 millimeter wide case fake Omega watches are still crafted from grade 2 titanium, new is the beautiful blue of the ceramic bezel, the green and blue rings on the periphery of the dial, as well as the green seconds hand. The reason for this Earth-themed color selection is that with this limited edition, Omega connects the X-33 with the Solar Impulse project, which they have been a part of since its earliest phases back in 2006.
The aim of this project is to create an airplane that is powered only by solar energy and is capable of flying around the globe, as Swiss Omega replica watches online put it: “making a bold statement about viable alternatives to non-renewable energy.” In March 2015, the around-the-world Solar Impulse flight will take off from Abu Dhabi and over five months the pilots will stop in Asia, North America and Southern Europe, flying day and night, to complete the first solar-powered circumnavigation of the world.
Omega has been on a roll over the last few years as the storied Swiss watch maker continues to produce both crowd-pleasing new designs and also “collector bait” timepieces which find happy homes on the wrists of hardcore watch enthusiasts. What is Omega’s secret? That is a tough question to answer as I’m still investigating the story, but it seems to be a combination of putting a lot of resources simultaneously into marketing as well as product development (most brands are good at only one or the other). A close inspection of a watch like the just-announced 2016 Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar replica watches UKreveals a few of Omega’s top fluencies.
It was only about a year ago that we introduced the standard Omega Globemaster collection. The 39mm-wide watch debuted in a range of materials including, steel, 18k yellow gold, 18k Sedna (rose) gold, and platinum along with the cryptic slogan “The World’s First Master Chronometer.”
What is a “Omega fake Master Chronometer series copy watches UK?” That is a good question. Of course, the Globemaster is the first of its kind, as it is a name that Omega just came up with to refer to their most advanced movements which have been certified using their most advanced techniques. “Master Chronometer” watches are those which have been METAS certified under a new set of standards developed by an arm of the Swiss government and Omega. The certification is easily one of the most rigorous for Swiss watch movements, as it exceeds COSC Chronometer standards in addition to testing for intense anti-magnetic properties, as well as testing the movements cased up inside of the watches – versus only outside prior to being “cased.”
By 2017, Omega should have about a dozen or so of its in-house made movements Omega replica watches being certified in its expanding METAS testing department which exists in-house at the Omega facility in Bienne, Switzerland. The Globemaster with its caliber 8900 movement was the first to be METAS certified, and that continues with the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar and its in-house-made caliber 8922 automatic Co-Axial movement.
Omega has been in bed with the Olympics committee for a long time, being the “official time keeper” for most of the events. What this basically means is that Omega gets to put their name on the clocks and such that time events. But it is possible that Omega replica watches UK is actually making some of these time keepers, most of which are digital these days and rely on sensors, rather than human hands for operation.
Having said that, the opportunity for Omega to release special Olympics event watches is too tempting to resist, and this time around, they have something really special. Despite the thick layer of controversy which exists atop this year’s Summer Olympics, Omega is able to provide a truly charming timepiece in commemoration of the event. Surely to become a collectors item as the watch so gracefully combines the five ring Olympian logo with chronograph functionality that the Omega Speedmaster is know for. Of course, not settling there, Omega had to fill each ring with a different function. So what did they do to fill the extra two dials, as a standard chronograph only has three? Well they turned one of them into a day of the week indicator, and another into a seven day counter. Meaning this chronograph now measures up to seven days. Pretty nifty. The middle ring that is the day of the week counter used a broad “T” shaped hand to make use of the limited area to display the day of the week.
Styling is conservative, but nice. This is not a “modern” timepiece, but a mere tasteful alteration on a classic theme. Red trim lines the watch, along with the Omega logo, and some of the numbers. A color often used when attempting to represent speed. The case is gold, contrasting well again the gold case and black leather strap. A steel version and metal bracelet are available and the gold versions come in rose or yellow gold. Inside is Omega Caliber 3888 automatic movement fake watches, of course with a co-axial escapement. Power reserve is an impressive 52 hours.
The best part? No cheesy lettering or logos on the face of the Omega high quality copy watch. The only indicator that this watch represents a tribute to the Olympics is the design of the subdials in the interlocked five ring pattern. Otherwise the watch is understated and tasteful. I personally am not a fan of watch that has too much logo work or unnecessary writing on the face. Leave that type of thing for an engraving on the caseback, if at all. People who wear this watch are going to do so for more than just the Olympics. Let it be a perfect daily wear watch, with a subtle reminder of its purpose. That is the best way to go, and Omega thankfully retained that logic here.
