Low August 2020, Omega has updated an Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton watch. Some watch brands never release collaborations or limited edition watches, but Omega is an exception to the rule. Because Omega is a Swiss watch brand that is always keen on releasing various collaborations or limited edition watches. The common ones are the James Bond dive watch and the Moon watch. The watch featured in this article celebrates Omega’s partnership with the nonprofit research foundation Nekton.
Nekton is a not-for-profit research foundation that is a leader in the UK. The non-profit association believes in the vital importance of marine conservation and has created the First Descent project in 2019. With the support of Omega, the “First Descent” project will continue in 2020. Nekton’s employees are doing their part to protect the Indian Ocean’s marine ecosystem. In addition, the goal is to have 30% of the project completed by 2030. Limited edition or collaborative knock off watches will not only generate higher earnings for Omega, but will also add more options for customers. Either way, Omega is promoting charity and other worthy causes.
The case dimensions of the knock off Omega Seamaster 300M Nekton watches are the same as the other divers in the collection, with a diameter of 42mm and a height of 13.5mm. And this case is still made of stainless steel. The case still has a signature helium vent valve at 10 o’clock and a traditional harp lugs at 3 o’clock. What makes it different is the bezel. This time, instead of a white gold bezel, Omega has opted for a grade 5 titanium bezel. Grade 5 titanium has the advantage of being tarnish and corrosion resistant. The frosted bezel uses laser-etched numerals.
The dial of the Omega Seamaster 300M Nekton copy watches is also distinctive. Omega Nekton watches eschew polished dials in favor of smooth, matte finishes. However, the dial still has the famous wave-shaped relief inside and is made of ZrO2. The lollipop seconds hand corresponds to the “Seamaster” at 12 o’clock, both in red. There is no date window in the dial, but this is an attractive detail. Most people will choose to confirm the date on their iPhone. The sapphire crystal caseback that protects the dial is also anti-reflective.
Movement And Straps
The Omega Seamaster 300M Nekton AAA watches are powered by the NO.8806 movement. Not only does it boast accuracy beyond COSC certification, it is also anti-magnetic with 15,000 gauss. So not only does this movement offer high performance, it also has a luxurious look. The solid stainless steel caseback has spreading Geneva waves, and in the middle is the submersible called Seamaster 2. For the strap, you have a choice between stainless steel (126.96.36.199.01.002) and rubber (188.8.131.52.01.002). The famous 9-row bracelet is a sporty take on a dive watch. But many people prefer the black rubber strap because it echoes the dial and has a sportier feel.
Omega has always played an important role in the long history of the sea. Sailing yachtsman Sir. Peter Blake is Omega’s celebrity ambassador. The celebrity was dedicated to the cause of marine conservation, but unfortunately he passed away unexpectedly in 2002. The captain named his watch the Seamaster. In tribute to the great man, Nekton has named a deep-diving submersible the Seamaster 2.
All in all, the fake Omega Seamaster 300M Nekton Special Edition watch has a distinctive style. Omega is to be commended for its support and assistance in protecting the ocean. If you own this watch, you are also contributing to the cause of ocean conservation.
