Have you ever wondered what it’s like to wear dive Swiss made replica watches rated to roughly 10 times the operational maximum depth of a Seawolf-Class submarine? Even if you haven’t, Omega’s got you covered.
Last week we introduced the brand’s latest flagship dive watch, the 1:1 US fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep watches – a production dive watch that’s offered in steel or titanium, and that’s rated for an unbelievable water-resistance of 6,000 meters (nearly 20,000 feet!).
The specs and images left me with many questions. How does it really wear? Who did Omega make this watch for? Where does it stand in the marketplace for maximum-depth dive high quality replica watches? To answer these questions, I went hands-on at a recent unveiling of Omega’s 2022 novelties in Miami, spending time with both the titanium and the steel Ultra Deeps. Let’s start with the titanium version.
The Ultra Deep Titanium
The Ultra Deep Titanium is the halo dive watch for the collection, a commercial representation of the original concept model that Omega strapped to Victor Vescovo’s submarine Limiting Factor in 2019 for a record-setting dive to 10,925 meters. That model measured a truly colossal 55 x 28mm.
For these production Ultra Deeps, Omega set a goal of 6,000M. This allowed designers to shrink the cheap copy watches down to a more realistic 45.5 x 18.12mm. With a lug to lug length of 56mm, the Ultra Deep Titanium is still no small watch, and given that its “Manta Lugs” require NATO-style straps, the watch sits a little higher on your wrist than even the thickness would suggest. Then again, if you’re in the market for a 6,000M dive watch, not only do you probably not care – you also don’t exactly have much in the way of other options.
The Ultra Deep’s asymmetrical case is made of sandblasted grade 5 titanium and the same material is also used for the closed two-piece caseback, crown, and unidirectional bezel. The bezel insert is brushed black ceramic with a luminous pip (common to Omega’s divers but also required for the Ultra Deeps ISO 6425 compliance). Also seen on the steel versions, the Ultra Deep Titanium uses a very high-quality Edge-Defined Film-Fed Growth (EFG) sapphire crystal.
EFG is a special process that ensures a crystal that has none of the imperfections that would cause it to shatter under the sorts of pressure that the Ultra Deep was designed to withstand. The crystal has AR coating on both sides and also uses a unique shape to further aid in pressure resistance and in ensuring that the Ultra Deep can be used in saturation diving without the need for a helium escape valve.
In-person, the Ultra Deep Titanium is even better looking than I expected. Despite its grey-on-grey tonality, the brushed bezel finish really looks incredible over the sandblasted case and the matte titanium dial. As with the case and bezel, the dial makes the most of the applied markers, the wonderful brushed finishing on the hands, the rich blue accents, and the lack of a date display. If you have the wrist for it, the Ultra Deep Titanium is a great-looking dive Swiss movements replica watches.
From the bezel to the included NATO, all of the touchpoints have a feel befitting a watch at this price point (~$12,000). The bezel is lighter than I expected but with a positive and clicky action that ensures precision. The NATO is made from 100% recycled material (largely fishing nets) and the strap’s hardware is also grade 5 titanium.
On the wrist, the only surprise is how the titanium communicates lightness while your eyes take in the full bulk of the Ultra Deep (which only weighs 123 g). With a T-shirt (or with your sleeve out of the way) I found the Ultra Deep to be too large for my 7-inch wrist, but not at all uncomfortable. Yes, it sits high, but the Manta Lugs keep the case from feeling unbalanced or wobbly. Another nice touch – again, if you have the wrist for it – is how the case flanks scallop in toward the caseback. This helps the Ultra Deep avoid feeling slab-sided, or as though it would inhibit a full range of motion on your wrist (something to consider when trying on larger best fake watches).
In the right setting – miles away from any door jambs or fitted cuffs – I could absolutely wear this watch and, though it may take some recalibrating I believe I could get used to the size, as 45.5mm is very big but not insanely so.
The Ultra Deep O-Megasteel
Moving on to the other Ultra Deeps, we find three colorways of a watch that’s similar to the titanium but not the same. The asymmetrical case has been swapped for something closer to others found in the Planet Ocean range, with crown guards and traditional lugs. Width and thickness are the same, but the O-megasteel models are somewhat shorter lug to lug, measuring 51.95mm.
As I covered in the original story about these top replica watches, the steel versions do not use traditional 316L steel, but rather a new and proprietary steel alloy that Omega calls O-megasteel. Unlike titanium, normal watch steels cannot handle the pressure of 6,000M so Omega developed a specialized steel that is considerably harder and yet more elastic than the common options. The result is a material that can take the pressure, fight off a scratch better than 316L, and carries a whiter and shinier coloring that looks a bit more like white gold than it does conventional steel.
The three colorways span a blue-to-black dial with a polished black ceramic bezel insert, a grey-to-black dial with orange accents and an orange bezel insert, and a white dial with blue accents and a blue bezel. Of the three, I much prefer the white/blue version, especially given how similar the blue gradient dial is to that of a Rolex Deepsea.
Where the titanium Ultra Deep has this wonderful interplay of matte and semi-matte surfaces, the O-megasteel versions are much shinier. The bezels are polished, the cases have brushed and polished elements with a large polished bevel on the case side, and if you opt for the bracelet it has polished accents as well. Where the titanium felt toolish and closely tied to the original concept, the steel versions are more in the vibe of a conventional luxury dive Omega super clone watches for sale.
You can pick between a bold and colorful rubber strap or a full O-megasteel bracelet. The models played with were unsized, so I can’t really comment on how the bracelet would feel when sized, but the general execution is that of any of the Planet Ocean bracelets. Nicely made, pretty chunky, and a good match for a larger dive watch. While certainly the heaviest way to option the Ultra Deep, it is nice to see that Omega replica watches wholesale online has included a push-button extension on the inside of the bracelet’s fold-over clasp.
The rubber straps are nicely molded for comfort and suit the watch nicely, but I find the band of coloring to be a bit too much for my taste – a Planet Ocean-style rubber in black or blue would make for an excellent third option down the road. That said, Omega did a nice job with this design as the strap manages the Ultra Deep’s weight without needing to be too tight on your wrist. For those looking to shave a few grams, there is a delta of almost 100g between the two mounts, with the rubber tipping the scales at 170g and the full steel pairing coming in at 256.5 g.
The full O-Megasteel options are an almost literal flex, but I found myself quickly preferring the matte bulkiness of the titanium over the hulked-up Planet Ocean vibes of the steel.
All Together Now
All versions of the Ultra Deep use the same movement that was in the original concept model, 1:1 Swiss Omega fake watches’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8912. An automatic movement with no-date, the 8912 ticks at 3.5 Hz, has a power reserve of 60 hours, and benefits from all of the tech we’ve come to expect from a top-spec Omega, including 15,000 gauss anti-magnetism, an Si14 balance spring, two series-mounted barrels, and the ever-handy jump-set hour hand (I love this feature).
Pricing starts at $11,200 on a rubber strap, $11,600 for the bracelet, or $12,300 for the Ultra Deep Titanium. With a Rolex Deepsea currently listed at $13,850, I think the Ultra Deep line is priced into the right spot in the market, though if you’re really in it to get the deepest diving watch, the Deepsea doesn’t come close to challenging 6,000 meters. If I was in this market, I’d spend the extra cash on the titanium.
In a more broad consideration of 2022 replica watches that I think could share similar audiences (though nothing similar in terms of raw capability or price) fans of big dive watches likely already know a handful of the standouts at any price. At the more accessible end, one might consider the Victorinox INOX Pro Diver in titanium ($850, good to 200M), or the 1000M-capable Sinn U1 ($2510, ). Breitling has several large dive fake watches paypal, including the 48mm Superocean Automatic 48 ($5400, with 300M water resistance) or the 3000 meter-capable Avenger 45 Seawolf ($4150). Panerai is in the mix too (though they don’t really move the needle in terms of water resistance) with the 47mm steel Submersible ($9200, 300M) or the more tech-forward 47mm Submersible Carbotech ($19,400, also 300M). And let’s not forget Seiko with the 1000M and 8L35-equipped SBDX038 Tuna (around $3300).
The point is, there are big burly fun-loving dive replica watches for men at just about every price. While the Ultra Deep’s record-setting depth is not exactly a practical feature, it does present a considerable draw in the world of dive watch enthusiasts. From now on, if you want to go really deep, you’re diving right past the Deepsea and continuing for another 2,100 meters until you find the Ultra Deep pinging on your sonar. As an impressive technical showcase for a multi-talented brand like Omega, the Ultra Deep blows everything else out of the water.
