You probably all know about the Replica Omega Seamaster 300 SPECTRE, a watch that we loved at first sight here, for many reasons. First of all, it is a faithful but also modern re-edition of one of Omega’s greatest watches, the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial. The design of the Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial is clearly inspired by its classical predecessor (with its straight lugs, its triangular indexes slightly recessed in the dial, the bezel with a black insert). The parentage between these two, even if separated of 57 years, is hard to debate.
There’s not much to criticize about the Omega Replica Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial Chronometer. It’s a superb watch, with its classical-inspired case and dial. It is fully reminiscent of the 1957 Omega Seamaster 300 ref. CK2913, as it shows the identical hands, dial, indexes and case that has the identical overall feeling and design. It is also an intelligent piece of engineering, with its fully antimagnetic Master Co-Axial Chronometer movement. The strap fitted on the Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial Chronometer is natural light brown calf leather with ecru stitching. It comes on a folding clasp. This combination, that perfectly matches the color of indexes filed with faux-patina Super-Luminova, gives an even more classical look and dressier feel to a watch replica that used to be quite sporty. Last but not least, its price its totally justified and even lower than the competition (The Sub, without naming it…). In comparison to my other watches, it is light and sits flatly around the wrist which makes me extremely comfortable to put on. Nevertheless, if a complaint has to be made toward this watch, it concerns its bracelet. Not that the quality is bad, but most collectors are not so found of the polished central link – even if faithful to the classical watch, this polished surface is a scratch-magnet (except on the titanium edition).

Prices will start from 5.100 Euros for the stainless steel edition (reminder: the stainless edition on bracelet is priced at 5.200 Euros).It seems that Omega Replica watches have listened that, not by brushing the whole bracelet but in fact now featuring a leather strap that, admittedly, emphasizes the classical feeling.
The Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial is definitely one of the best modern dive watches – and a very good looking one too. For 2015, it puts on some new shoes and shows now a leather strap. Overall, the Omega Seamaster 300 is clearly a very nice watch, both technically and visually – for all the specifications and the details, you can take a look at our extensive review.
