Interview with The Classic Fake Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph Watch

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph replica wristwatch sports a more subdued, traditional design with only three sub-dials. As you can see on the photos below, there is a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, a 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock and a 12-hour totalizer at 6 o’clock.

Looking way more serene than the aforementioned model, the new timekeeper is also a lot more versatile capable of being worn not only with jeans and polo shirts, but also with an expensive formal suit if you are more into that James Bond, Agent 007 kind of style.

While not as extravagant, the new design is not only easier to read, but also allows the Swiss watchmaker to save a penny or two using a simpler movement.

The small date aperture can be found on its usual place between 4 and 5 o’clock.

In this particular case, the movement in question is the Omega Co-Axial Caliber 3313.

 

Being officially certified by COSC as a chronometer, the movement is quite accurate (for a mechanical watch) and will offer you a decent power reserve of 52 hours.

Based on the Piguet 1285 automatic movement, the cal. 33xx was known for its not-so-perfect performance (mainly due to the inadequate shock protection system, so the problem was the most evident when it came to sporty Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra copy watch.)

However, if you plan to use it as an “office watch” substituting it on weekends for something more elegant (or, conversely, something cheaper and more rugged,) you should bear in mind that between Friday 6PM and Monday 7AM lie whole 63 hours, so you will still have to either reset the watch each Monday or to get yourself a watch-winder.

However, by now the problem seems to be fixed and you will most likely enjoy your watch without any real problems, given that the timepiece is properly serviced and is not over-abused.

Presented on a thick stainless steel bracelet, the watch features a domed, double-antireflective sapphire crystal on its front and a solid screw-down case back with a stamped London Olympic Games 2012 logo.

As the other members of the current Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph family the new Aqua Terra London 44 is presented in a somewhat bulky, massive-looking case 44 millimeters in diameter.

It is really a shame that they didn’t equip the steel Omega replica watch with a display back, since their calibers are always a pleasure to look at.
