2016 Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black Collection

This past summer, Omega expanded its range of Master Chronometer-certified Planet Ocean watches, which debuted at Baselworld 2016, with four new black-ceramic-cased models called Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black. This new collection will be among Omega’s highlights at the upcoming UkOmegaReplica New York event on October 14-15.

The Deep Black collection adds touches of color and gold to a one-piece 45.5-mm case of black zirconium oxide ceramic (ZrO2 technically, referred to as ceramic) complemented with similarly black ceramic bezels and dials. Omega has devised a ceramic case for this collection that has been tested for water resistance to 600 meters, or about 2,000 feet, which the firm claims is the first ceramic watch case tested to reach such depths.

The Planet Ocean Deep Black models differ by accent color (red, blue, black, or gold) and one features its bezel, crowns, hands and indices forged from Omega’s own 18k Sedna gold (above). All also boast a new GMT ring that has been fixed to the dial, while each model’s diving scale is built directly into the ceramic bezel using markers and numerals made with Liquidmetal (a substance used in other Omega models and by other brands throughout the Swatch Group) or Ceragold, a proprietary Omega gold-ceramic alloy.

Omega injects red or blue vulcanized rubber directly into the bezels of two models to colorfully mark the 15-minute dive-time indication, as well as to match the hands and the 12, 6, and 9 indication colors on those models. (You’ll find similar color accents on the steel Planet Ocean replica watches that debuted at Baselworld.) Rubber-injected “He” marks the Helium valve on the red and blue models, while the symbol is in Liquidmetal on the black model.

Two Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black models — the Black and the Sedna gold versions — feature ceramic cases and dials polished for a glossy effect. The blue- and red-accented versions feature cases and dials that are matte finished, which Omega says offers better visibility underwater. For the gold model, Omega uses its 18k Sedna gold to accent the hands and indices; the three other Deep Black dials feature hands and indices of 18k white gold. All are coated in white Super-LumiNova that emits green and blue colors (as seen below).

Each of these new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black watches is fitted with Omega’s Master Chronometer Caliber 8906, which boasts resistance to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss–a key feature of Omega’s Master Chronometer certification.

You’ll recall that Omega announced the Master Chronometer certification in 2015, explaining that each Master Chronometer watch will be certified as having passed eight tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). The tests are said to replicate or exceed real-life wearing conditions highlighted by the enhanced resistance to magnetic fields. This standard, first offered with the new Omega Globemaster late last year, is meant to verify the watch’s precision and performance and is added to the COSC certification Omega already extends to these replica watches. Omega also adds a four-year warranty to this expanded certification.

A look at the caseback of these new Deep Black models reveals more than a clear view of that Caliber 8906, which features a silicon balance spring, Omega’s proprietary Co-Axial escapement and a 60-hour power reserve. Developing a new ceramic case for dive models necessitated new technology, specifically a patented ceramic Naiad Lock, to ensure a water-resistant caseback for a material rarely used to case dive watches. With the caseback thus locked tight, Omega added another aesthetic touch to the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black design by orienting the caseback so that the engraved wording always sits perfectly in position, with “Deep Black” at the top of the caseback and “Planet Ocean” below.

Three of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black watches come on a black rubber strap that looks like a fabric strap. Each offers contrasting stitching (red, blue, or white). A wave pattern can be found on the underside. On the Sedna gold model, the strap is water-resistant leather with the same anti-bacterial rubber underside. The fold-over clasp is made from ceramized titanium, while the clasp cover is made in ceramic with two types of finishing. All straps are treated with an anti-bacterial coating.

How To Spot A Replica Omega Wristwatch

Omega, which was founded in 1848, is one of the world’s oldest, most highly respected, and popular watch manufacturers, so it should come as no surprise that the brand is frequently the target of counterfeiters.

Knock-off reproductions vary in quality and detail with some so close in design to the original watch that the case back must be removed and the movement examined in order to verify the watch’s authenticity.

If you are considering purchasing an Omega, here is some advice to help spot a possible counterfeit.

Multiple design elements in one

Combining multiple design elements into one is the biggest red flag to look for when identifying a replica watch.

Many counterfeits draw design elements from different Omega lines, resulting in a watch that has the features of two or more distinct Omega models. If the watch superficially appears to be a Speedmaster, but says Seamaster on the dial and has the case back of a Constellation, then the watch is probably a Replica.

One major exception to this rule is constituted by some vintage examples of Omega’s De Ville model.

The Omega De Ville Tresor from 2014: a pure, modern De Ville design

Prior to becoming its own, unique model in Omega’s lineup, the De Ville was released as a variant in the Seamaster model range. As a result, some of the earlier versions have both names printed on the dial.

Check for misspellings and poorly executed printing/engraving

Given that Omega makes some of the finest timepieces in the world, you can rest assured that the firm does not produce watches with misspellings on the dial, case, or movement.

Additionally, any printing on the dial or engravings on the case/case back should be near perfect in execution on an authentic Omega.

If the lines are messy or crooked, then you are likely dealing with a replica watch.

Check the functions of the watch

Many counterfeiters do not bother to take the time to fully replicate all of the functions of the original watch.

Examples of this may include a Speedmaster with non-functioning subdials or helium gas escape valves that are misplaced or do not unscrew.

If an Omega without a date display or any other complication has multiple crown positions, then it is likely a sign that the movement inside was not originally intended for that watch.

Look for the serial number

Omega watches are engraved with a seven- or eight-digit serial number that is entirely unique to that specific watch.

Vintage watches frequently have the serial number engraved on the inside of the case back, while contemporary Omega models often have it engraved on the outside of the case (more often than not on the bottom of one of the lugs).

Even when a serial number is present, it is worth running the number through a quick Internet search. Many counterfeit Omega models use the same serial number for multiple watches, so if the serial number comes up for anything other than the exact watch that you are holding, then it is likely a replica.

Examine the movement

If uncertainty remains, open the watch and examine its movement or take it to a watchmaker and have him or her do this.

Omega engraves its movements, and the majority of its vintage models feature movements that are plated in copper. All Omega movements – new and old alike – are remarkably well finished and possess a certain level of refinement and detail that will not be found on counterfeit timepieces.

While this checklist is a great way to help you spot many Replica Omega watches, there will still be some counterfeits that are such faithful reproductions that you should have them examined by a professional before purchasing.

Anytime you purchase a watch, it is important to do your research. And, as always, you must trust the seller.
