In Ian Fleming’s novels, Bond wore a Rolex. In the first movies, that translated into a Submariner (in the novels it isn’t). Over the years, 007 wore a plethora of UK super clone watches from all sorts of brands. However, since 1995 James Bond has been wearing Omega watches. Where the cars changed from BMW to Ford Focus, to Aston Martin (again), his choice for watches remained the same. Sponsored or not, the Swiss made fake Omega has been on the wrist of James Bond since 1995’s GoldenEye.
Super Clone Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 2531.80
At first with the reference 2541.80, and later on with the 2531.80. The difference between these luxury fake Omega Seamaster 300M references is the movement. The Seamaster Diver 300M 2541.80 as featured in GoldenEye had a quartz movement, and in the next Bond movie (Tomorrow Never Dies) with Pierce Brosnan as 007, it was the automatic reference 2531.80.
Using the quartz movement in GoldenEye had probably to do with the friendlier price point of that watch at the time. Those years before 1995 weren’t the easiest for AAA quality super clone Omega, and I can imagine that positioning such a watch was not an easy task. Quartz made this watch perhaps a bit more accessible for a larger audience. In the next movies, The World is Not Enough (1999) & Die Another Day (2002), the wholesale replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 2531.80 could also be seen on the wrist of her Majesty’s secret agent.
The entry watch to collecting for many people
This watch, and also the later UK fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M for men reference 2220.80.00 in Casino Royale (2006), have often been watches that got people into collecting watches. According to boutiques and authorized dealers that I’ve spoken to, there are people coming into their shops asking for the best quality super clone Omega that James Bond wears. So contrary to what some of you (and that included me as well for a long time) believe, using the right ambassadors does help brands to sell watches. The luxury copy Omega Seamaster Diver 300M, with blue dial, has been linked to James Bond since 1995 and it was one of those watches readily and widely available. Even during and after the release of these Bond movies.
A no-nonsense diving Omega super clone for men, with a caliber 1120 automatic movement (later replaced by the Co-Axial escapement caliber 2500), and also available with a quartz movement. It has an aluminum diving scale bezel, steel bracelet (rubber strap optional), and the famous He-valve. The latter is still today, many years later, often a topic of discussion amongst watch enthusiasts. In Casino Royale, we also saw Daniel Craig wearing the top fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean. A watch he wore till Skyfall (2012), to be replaced by the Seamaster 300 “Spectre” in 2015. When Omega upgraded the Omega Seamaster 300M super clone site 2021 in 2018, I expected Bond to go back to the 300M model for sure.
The special UK Omega super clone watches Paypal limited editions in steel, gold, and platinum, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” confirmed my expectations. But, little did I know that it would be a very special best 1:1 replica Omega in titanium, with a 42mm case and a broad arrow printed on the tropical dial. And, one of its key features, with a titanium mesh bracelet.
