The popular Speedmaster is one of the most famous blacks and white dial fake watches ever made – just like most versions of the Rolex Submariner. Omega has an interesting tradition of black and white watches, including those that are entirely black or white, as well as some that mix the two. This particular iteration of the modern Omega Seamaster 300M is a great example of Omega mixing the two, giving it a very handsome “cookies and cream” aesthetic – that is, with a nice splash of red.
Back in 2019, OMEGA debuted this updated Seamaster 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer. The new generation model builds on the classic Omega launched in 1993 as a “non-submariner clone” alternative luxury sports watch. The latest generation of the Seamaster 300M has a slightly larger case and a METAS-certified mechanical movement with OMEGA’s own 8800 automatic Co-Axial escapement. This 4 Hz movement has a 55-hour power reserve and is more or less immune to magnetic interference thanks to the use of non-magnetic components in the regulating system, such as non-ferrous and silicon parts.
Although OMEGA has made many fake Rolex watches, each one has a very different personality, as well as a different case style. What evokes the Seamaster 300M is its unique dial style, the iconic position of the manual helium drain at 10 o’clock, and the elegant curves on the case. In fact, I sometimes think the current Seamaster 300M looks better on a rubber strap than a matching steel one – because you can see the shape of the case better when it’s paired with the strap.
Traditionally, the problem with white dial sports watches has been poor readability due to the low contrast hands. Here, fake OMEGA has not only applied the markers with the hands, but they have black edges (and white interiors), which helps them jump out from the dial. This also looks particularly nice because the base dial is white zirconium dioxide ceramic.
Aside from the fact that the Seamaster 300M is designed to look like a serious diver’s tool, what I like most about this high-end timepiece line is that it doesn’t look like anything else on the market. One of the main reasons consumers are willing to spend on luxury items is to identify value. In other words, they like the idea that other people can identify our products. That is on their wrist – something you can easily experience with a Seamaster 300M.
