Speaking of future classics, here is a watch that needs no introduction. We fly now, rather appropriately, over to London, where this perfect fake Omega Seamaster 300M (ref. 2531.80.00) is currently on offer. Introduced back in 1993, the cheap replica Omega Seamaster 300M became quite the iconic watch, likely due to the spot it proudly took on the wrist of everyone’s favorite fictional man of HMSS, James Bond.
Though Pierce Brosnan’s first outing as Bond in 1995’s GoldenEye saw him wear the earlier quartz luxury super clone Omega UK (ref. 2541.80), he later opted for the automatic model we see here today. It took to the silver screen in 1997 for Tomorrow Never Dies. Rather fitting is also the fact that 2022 marks the 60th anniversary of James Bond’s cinematic debut in 1962. Back then, it was the late Scottish actor Sean Connery who played the character with a best super clone Rolex Submariner 6538 on his wrist.
I have quite a soft spot for these wave-dialed, aluminum-bezeled 1:1 fake Omega Seamasters. Not only is the 41mm size perfect, but they are also significantly less shiny and “luxurious” feeling than the current Omega Seamaster Diver 300M replica watches online. The spirit of a tool-watch diver lives on in these models, much like in the pre-ceramic five-digit Submariners. And though my heart lies with the 2254.50 model, the classic blue 2531.80 is one worth getting your hands on today, especially seeing as how prices do nothing but climb. You may have seen these for sale in decent condition for just under/over €2,000, but that’s a thing of the past. This particular super clone watch, which is freshly serviced and comes with its original box and papers, will set you back £3,050 (currently, about €3,500). The Swiss movement fake Omega UK is available now from the well-known pre-owned retailer Xupes.
