James Bond - the watch of the future "Ref."


The Omega Seamaster is a staple in the collections of both Omega and James Bond enthusiasts. Famous for its rugged, no nonsense, handle anything design; it is a very fitting watch for a world class spy who will run it through its paces, as I’m sure many of you have seen on the big screen.

This new omega Seamaster is an updated version of what we have already seen and may just be the perfect watch for the James Bond of the future. 

Its case is crafted from black polished ceramic, as well as grade 5 titanium and sapphire crystals on both sides. This culmination of materials means it is extremely scratch resistant and will always look good enough for a surprise black tie event. It comes on a black rubber strap that will not only feel comfortable in all conditions and environments but also reduces the weight over the regular steel Seamaster so that while engaged in combat, it doesn’t alter your performance. 

Omega has fitted this watch with their Co-Axial 8806 movement which is not only chronometer certified but comes with a 55 hour power reserve so that you never have to worry about missing the deadline for whatever impending nuclear threat you may face. 

RRP $12,375.00
Yours for only $3,800
If only pigs could fly!

Unfortunately this "watch listed here"  is about as real as James Bond himself. Yes it is a 100% outright fake and not for sale. From the watch, down to the instruction booklet. 

The watch was brought in for educational purposes by a watch collector who bought it online from an overseas seller. It is one of the best Omega replicas we have ever seen. While we didn't have the original watch in stock, we did have the Omega box and same year instruction manual to compare, which are literally identical and only has one small detail that gives it away. Printed on the same paper, with the same number of pages, in the same font - Quite frankly if we didn’t have the original booklet from the same issue year it would be almost impossible to figure out what makes the fake booklet fake. 

What is the one detail you may ask? - The only difference we could notice is the original booklet is 20mm thick and the fake one is 22mm. That is the difference in paper thickness between over 475 pages. Judging by the cover, you won’t be able to tell the difference. 

So what’s the bottom line? The best place to buy an Omega is at the Omega boutique. The second best place is from a dealer you can trust blindly. 

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
