Kicking off Baselworld 2018 with a classic”Bang!” Omega breaks out its foundation cap with two new limited edition versions. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Omega’s launch of this Seamaster, Omega drops the Omega speedmaster swiss replica watches Seamaster 1948 Limited Edition — a Small Seconds model, along with a Central Seconds model. Supposedly inspired by the British Ministry of Defense’s petition to get a a military spec-ed watch that’s also suited for civilian lifestyle, Omega set out to create the Seamaster collection in 1948. Though the visuals of both of these watches are heavily inspired by the age, the watches use the Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8804 and 8806 in-house movements — giving the post-war look some contemporary courage.
I am eager to see Omega speedmaster moonwatch imitation watch introducing some smaller, dressier Seamaster watches that are attainable for a standard purchaser. The Seamaster Edizione Venezia in steel proved to be a good beginning, though widely inaccessible because it was only marketed in Venice, and the Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Gold Collection was an encouraging step in the ideal way, but being only in precious metals and carrying a price tag of almost $20,000 garnered the placement of the collection into a more affluent marketplace. We’ve seen a massive push of classic inspired (or”Re-Issued”) modern watches from Omega speedmaster swiss replica (particularly in the last few years) and it appears that it’s been a powerful move — particularly as it’s been done well.
Utilizing new motions for the Seamaster 1948 Limited Edition will work well for Omega speedmaster reduced clone . It is going to provide buyers with the stability of Omega’s modern motion quality without losing the charm of strapping something on their wrist which feels like it’s from the’40s. I personally have discovered Omega’s lack of clean steel apparel watches frustrating at times and I’ve often wondered why Omega speedmaster ultraman replica hasn’t re-issued or re-vamped their classic Seamaster to get a contemporary market. A quick scroll through eBay yields a flood of vintage Seamasters that are rarely left unsold and barely matched in Omega’s current steel catalogue.
Overall the watches look great. If I had to select one, the blank nature of this Central Seconds grabs my eye, and I believe it’d look great with a suit — though I’d likely swap the blue-grey strap out for something more subtle. Each watch will be presented in a unique collector’s leather box with a neat magnet add to maintain the watch vertical, but readily accessible without fiddling with the fitting. Each model is limited to 1,948 pieces, a clear number, and will likely carry a price tag of approximately $6,000 but we will update you when we hear directly from the brand.
