The Luxury AAA Fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition Watches UK Pops Up On My Radar Screen

The hype is real. Although it’s a mini hype because the craziness is limited to Fratello HQ, it is still very real. Morgan recently bought one, Nacho can’t stop wearing his, and that led to RJ wearing his more and more often. And if that weren’t enough, all the team members started studying the collection to pick their favorite iterations. The object of our obsession is the 2024 1:1 replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M watches, and the one that caught and held my attention was the Nekton Edition on a black rubber strap (ref. 210.32.42.20.01.002). That’s the one with the titanium bezel instead of a ceramic one. After receiving it at HQ and strapping it on, I began to understand why this is the “SMP” for me.

Not long after joining Fratello in 2021, I wrote about an early 2000s watch that caught my eye on Zeitauktion. It was the China cheap fake Omega Seamaster Professional Automatic Chronometer 300M Diver watches (ref. 2652.50.91), a midsize watch in white gold. That 36.25 × 11.5mm watch mixes tool-watch qualities, such as its ability to dive deep, with a moderately sized case in precious metal. It’s a pre-METAS, pre-Co-Axial model powered by the 23-jewel, rhodium-plated caliber 1120. That’s an ETA-based, COSC-certified automatic chronometer movement with a 44-hour power reserve. So, the top Omega copy watches is a precise and elegant timing instrument with one aesthetic feature that speaks to me — a “bare” bezel. A non-ceramic bezel with indications in relief also appears on the Seamaster Professional 300M Nekton Edition, which sparked my interest.

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition pops up

The Nekton, a watch that debuted in 2020, was the final push that got me on the “SMP” bandwagon, even though “Professional” is no longer part of the official name, and we should use “SMD” to be factually accurate. Anyway…

“Naked” bezels… What can I say? I have a thing for them. Ceramic bezels are not for me, and colored ceramic bezels in particular do not get my blood pumping. I have a love for metal bezels with contrasting markings, just like the one on my Speedmaster as well as the Rolex Explorer II and the Grand Seiko “Mist Flake” that I’ve been eyeing for some time now. I also like those with markings engraved in relief. The most famous example of such a bezel is the platinum one on the Rolex Yacht-Master. And what about a bezel that has both color and relief, like that of the Yacht-Master 42 in RLX Titanium? Well, that’s an exceptional combination of a sober, matte color and three-dimensionality that’s just sensational. But let me get back to the Seamaster Diver 300M, high quality Omega replica watches that I never liked all that much. But why?

Know when to stop

The Seamaster Diver 300M is a watch that has a lot going on. Some brands stop designing when 90% of the work is done. With some Omega creations, I get the feeling that the design process only stops after 110% of the job is completed. In other words, some Swiss movements Omega super clone watches look overdesigned in my eyes. The current models, with their ceramic bezel inserts showing white enamel diving scales and their glossy ceramic dials with laser-engraved waves, are very “in your face.”

There is also the very large, distinct skeleton handset and applied, rhodium-plated indexes filled with Super-LumiNova. And that’s just the dial. The visual spectacle doesn’t stop there. Who could miss the conical helium escape valve sticking out of the case? And if you opt for a bracelet over a rubber strap, you get a bold, non-tapering one with both polished and brushed surfaces. Everything is fighting for attention. I didn’t even mention the date at 6 o’clock.

Full disclosure

There’s just a lot going for a 42mm watch. This makes it look bigger than it actually is. It looks more like a 43.5mm watch, a size that perfect Omega replica watches also has in its catalog. But although it looks big, the smallest of modern SMP models wears just fine. The 42 × 49.9 × 13.7mm case, which weighs 115 grams, sits quite nicely on my 18cm wrist. Having said that, Nacho’s GADA watch, the SMP 300M ref. 2254.50.00, with its 41 × 47 × 12mm case, is even better on the wrist. The 1.7mm difference in thickness is notable and important when it comes to how the watch feels. And I mean this not in a strictly physical sense but, rather, more in the emotional sense. A 41mm watch that’s only 12mm thick feels more luxurious and sophisticated than a 42mm evolutionary version of it that’s almost 2mm thicker.

The Nekton is different

So why do I find myself developing a strong interest in the Nekton? It’s not the story of the best UK fake Omega watches, although you can’t have anything against a not-for-profit research foundation committed to the protection and management of the world’s oceans. The case back, showing a medallion with a Nekton submarine, is also pretty cool. I won’t complain that it covers the nicely decorated Master Chronometer caliber 8806 inside. Instead, I will just enjoy this movement’s accuracy and 55-hour power reserve.

My interest in the Nekton is because of its matte ceramic dial with subtle, polished waves in relief, the absence of a date (although I am certainly not a member of the “Date Police”), and the unidirectional Grade 5 titanium bezel with a laser-ablated diving scale. And the case-hugging black rubber strap with a no-nonsense, polished/brushed pin buckle is also part of the appeal. By the way, the little detail of a rubber pin inside the second keeper to keep it in position on the strap is both very neat and practical.

The Nekton Edition is a bit of a mix between the unobtainable wholesale replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M watches that King Frederik X of Denmark wears — a fully brushed, no-date, matte-dial tool watch with the insignia of the Frømandskorpset on the back — and the titanium “No Time To Die” 007 Edition (ref. 210.90.42.20.01.001). The Nekton name also has a nice ring to it, I think — a bit Transformer-ish, don’t you agree? These factors combine to create a timepiece hovering between fantastic fiction and instrumental reality.

Two issues with the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition

There are just two issues that I have with the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition. First, there’s the price. The Nekton on a rubber strap will set you back €7,500. That’s €1,300 more than a standard Seamaster Diver 300M with either a black, white, blue, gray, or green dial. That’s quite the markup for a titanium bezel instead of a ceramic one and a decorated case back instead of a transparent one.

The other issue I have is a minor visual one — the all-red seconds hand. I would have preferred the subtler red-tipped seconds hand of the standard model. But I guess since the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton is a special edition, the Omega replica watches for sale needed a special seconds hand. However, I do think that the all-red seconds hand proves my point that over-designing is a real thing at Omega. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments, and also feel free to share your favorite Seamaster Professional/Diver 300M. Did I hear anyone say “Great White,” or was that just the voice inside my head?

Why Ed White Wore Two Perfect Swiss Replica Omega Speedmaster Watches UK During His Spacewalk

You’re probably familiar with astronaut Ed White, who performed NASA’s first spacewalk in 1965 as part of the Gemini IV mission. In the pictures of that spacewalk, you can see him wearing two best UK Omega replica watches.

Unfortunately, Ed White died in a fatal accident with Apollo 1. His name will live forever, though, as the first NASA astronaut to “walk” in space. As a member of the Apollo 1 crew, White should have launched into space once more on February 21st, 1967. However, during a test on January 27th, he and fellow crew members Grissom and Chaffee all died in a horrible fire in the command module.

Speedmaster collectors often mention Ed White’s name when talking about the Speedmaster ref. 105.003. This is the Speedmaster model that Ed White wore during his Gemini IV flight and spacewalk, and it was also on his wrist during that fatal accident. A few questions arise when seeing Ed White wearing two Speedmasters over his spacesuit. Why did he wear two cheap 1:1 Omega fake watches, which specific watches did he wear, and where are they now?

Speedmaster “Ed White” 105.003

With the help of Omega and the brand’s access to the NASA archives, we’ll try to answer those questions. Although people have made many assumptions on this topic, it is good to have our research fact-checked by Omega (and, through Omega, by NASA).

The Speedmaster ref. 105.003 was the watch that NASA tested and qualified for all manned space missions in 1965. NASA initially received three of these watches for testing. After the qualification, Omega sent another batch of 24 high quality replica Omega Speedmaster 105.003 watches. Later on, NASA also ordered the Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012 and 145.012 references for use during the Apollo missions. The 105.003, however, was still in use at the same time as the 105.012 and 145.012. Consequently, all three references saw action until the end of the Apollo missions.

Speedmaster 105.003-63

Omega confirmed that both AAA online Omega copy watches on astronaut Ed White’s wrist during the Gemini IV mission are Speedmaster 105.003-63 references. One of them was Ed White’s training watch, and, according to NASA’s former engineer James H. Ragan, “It was one of the first Speedmasters to be delivered after the tests performed by NASA.” The training watch was later sold by Ed White’s son to a collector in Japan. The late Chuck Maddox wrote about this on his website.

We know that the other 105.003-63 watch was destroyed in the tragic Apollo 1 fire. That top Omega replica watches had NASA’s internal serial number S/N 5 and reference code CF5503 engraved on the left side of the case. On the case back, it was engraved with SEB1210039-001.

NASA engravings

With the 105.012 and 145.012 references, the NASA number changed from -001 to -002, and the CF5503 coding was shelved. Interestingly, the CF5503 engraving was originally meant for Gemini missions. The SEB1210039-001/002 engraving was for Apollo missions. The luxury Omega super clone watches used for Gemini, which only had CF5503 originally, later got an additional SEB1210039-001 engraving. These codes were internal references or product numbers for identification. Every piece of equipment NASA used was labeled and categorized similarly.

Omega serial numbers

That answers the question of what happened to these two Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster 105.003-63 watches. Unfortunately, that means it is difficult to find out the exact Omega serial numbers of these watches. We do, however, know roughly where those serial numbers would have fallen. From the archives, we can tell that the serial numbers would have started with 20,252,6xx. The last two digits seem likely to remain unknown.

The other astronaut on Gemini IV was the command pilot James A. McDivitt, who would go on to become the commander of Apollo 9. McDivitt also wore a Speedmaster during the Gemini IV mission. It was a ref. 105.003-63 with NASA’s S/N 4, CF5503, and SEB1210039-001 engraved. This Omega fake watches for men is now part of the Smithsonian’s collection in the USA. The Omega serial number of this watch is also in the 20,252,6xx range. Interestingly, astronaut Frank Borman also used this particular watch during Gemini VII.

Why Ed White wore two watches

According to NASA’s former engineer James H. Ragan, astronauts kept track of not only the mission time but also their home (Houston) time. The same applied to Ed White during his 23-minute spacewalk in 1965. Swiss movements replica Omega Speedmaster 105.003-63 watches indicated the mission time of Gemini IV, while the other one indicated Houston time.

According to space-watch buff Philip Corneille, founder of Moon Watch Universe, both Gemini IV astronauts James McDivitt and Ed White wore two Omega Speedmaster chronographs. It was the first mission with two control centers, Launch Control Florida and Mission Control Texas.
