The Olympic Games Omega Seamaster with a Black Enamel Dial

I was greatly shocked by the Omega Seamaster somewhere. This version of the Seamaster Olympic Games is a standard sized watch, executed in a completely superlative way that is at once typical in its looks and utmost modern in its technology. 
Before completely addicted in this model, it’s crucial to know that it comes as kind of the cherry on top of an already great collection of pieces that the replica Omega launched during the lead-up to the Winter Olympic Games, hosted at Pyeongchang, South Korea, back in February. First we were shown a quintet of sporty models that recalled the colors of the five Olympic rings. These were all steel and featured black and white dials with Arabic numerals and luminous hands.
The watch we have in front of us is basically one f those dressier versions of the Seamaster Olympic Games, just on steroids. The case is still a reasonable size at 39.5mm across and 11.98mm thick, but it’s rendered in solid 950 platinum rather than gold or steel. When you pick it up off a tray, there’s no question this is platinum – the replica watch has some serious heft. The sides and fronts of the lugs are brushed, while the bezel and facets on the lugs are polished, so you get a good bit of contrast too.
Since I’m always in love with platinum, I’m absolutely crazy about black enamel. The hard-fired black enamel dial on this watch is easily one of the best I’ve seen on a modern watch, full stop. Like, ever. The black is rich and glossy, looking almost wet as it catches the light, and the silvery white logos and minute markers can look either like they’re fading into the background or jumping out at you, depending on the angle. Applied at the hours are traditional, arrow-shaped markers made of 18k white gold, and they help show off the dial’s domed shape too.
While so far everything feels pretty old-school about this watch, the movement is state-of-the-art: the in-house Omega caliber 8807. This movement is automatic, utilizes a co-axial escapement, and is a METAS-certified Master Chronometer. It also runs at 3.5 Hz, in 35 jewels, and is resistant to up to 15,000 gauss of magnetism. And as one last technical flourish, the balance is free sprung too. The finishing is exactly what you’d expect on one of Omega’s movement. It’s thorough, but not over-the-top.
I’m normally someone firmly confirmed in the “make the movement fit the case” camp, but I’m willing to make an exception here. The sapphire caseback does fill the rear of the watch and you’ll notice that the space between the movement and the case’s edges is engraved with “Official Timkeeper” and the names of all the Olympic host cities where Omega had this role. It is, of course, made of platinum too, and it seems to make sense in a watch like this.
Putting this watch on my wrist was absolutely an outstanding of Baselworld 2018. Of course, these are not quite replica watches dimensions, but it’s an easy to wear, moderate size that I think many people would really enjoy.

Two Special Replica Watches at the 35th America’s Cup

The America’s Cup is one of the oldest international sporting events with the “Auld Mug” as the trophy ewer is known, first having been prized by the Royal Yacht Squadron to the yacht America in 1851. The arcane nature of the rules as well as the very high costs of participation have kept it from wider public appreciation but within the yachting community there is no competition more keenly replica watches.
In what was widely seen as a major upset this year the challenger won, with ETNZ taking the Auld Mug in triumph back to Auckland. It remains to be seen whether New Zealand can retain the Cup as long as the record holder: the New York Yacht Club successfully defended the Cup for a jaw-dropping 132 years.
For decades dominated by single-hull 12 meter yachts, the 35th America’s Cup this year had competitors sailing hydrofoiling multihull boats with underwater wings, that have sails 77 feet high, an onboard crew of 6, and which can hit speeds of up to 50 miles an hour. The win by ETNZ didn’t just ensure that traveling to the next America’s Cup will be dramatically more expensive for anyone in the Western Hemisphere who wants to watch; it also comes at a watershed moment for the Cup.
Best Replica Omega Planet Ocean “Deep Black” GMT
The Omega Planet Ocean “Deep Black” GMT replica watch is a quite big watch at 45.50mm x 17.38mm, with a water resistance of 600 meters. It’s a combination of many of Omega’s most cutting edge features in a dive watch – LiquidMetal numbers on the zirconium dioxide ceramic bezel, a helium escape valve, zirconium dioxide case and caseback and inside of course, one of the industry’s most technicall advanced mechanical movements. omega
The ETZN branding is confined to the Team’s logo on the caseback and the general color scheme of the watch. One feature worth pointing out is that the bezel has a ten minute countdown scale on it, which facilitates using the Deep Black as a regatta timer in any race with a ten minute countdown before the start.
Top Quality Omega replica X-33 Regatta
The other watch introduced at the 35th America’s Cup is the X-33 Regatta. This is a regatta specific version of Omega’s most practical and capable modern aerospace watch, the X-33. This version is slightly different from the pilot/astronaut version of the X-33 in that it doesn’t have the 999 day mission timer function; On the contrary, there is a regatta function dedicated to the 4th pusher which will count down a chosen interval before the start, and which will then count up for a total elapsed time for the race. In addition the LGB (logbook) function allows the recording of time between up to 10 buoys in up to 2 races total.
As with the Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ branding, it is a limited edition of 2,017 pieces worldwide; the movement is a high precision TCXO (temperature compensated quartz oscillator) caliber 5620, with nine jewels (in the mechanical train for the analogue hands) with a 24 month battery life. X-33s are notable for the loudness of their alarms; they were specifically designed to allow alarms to be audible even in a noisy cockpit and there are apertures in the caseback to allow the egress of sound. However due in part to these apertures water resistance is only 30 meters; perhaps slightly problematic for a fake watch intended to be used in an aquatic environment, but probably adequate as long as you are not in a yacht race and find yourself sinking to a depth of 30 meters.
