Omega Seamaster Homage Watch Alternatives – The Closest Look A Likes

The Omega Seamaster is one of the most popular and desired luxury watches in the world. If you’ve seen the latest James Bond films, you’ve probably noticed the enigmatic protagonist wearing the Seamaster all the time.

The Seamaster collection originated back in the 1940s as part of Omega’s celebration of its 100th anniversary. After Yves Le Prieur, the father of modern diving, used an Omega watch on his diving tours, people saw Omega watches as reliable devices that can function even under extreme water pressure. Aside from this, Omega was already popular back then since they were chosen as the official timekeeper for the 1948 London Olympics.

Aside from its quality, the history behind the watch and its popularity for being used in a well-loved movie series are some of the reasons why the Omega Seamaster is priced so high. Don’t fret as there are affordable alternatives you can buy so you can still feel like James Bond when wearing them.
