New vintage Seamaster 300m case?

Recommended Posts

It's not the old Vietnamese/Yuki case, but it's an improvement over the previous "Vintage SM300" from the cartel.  The separation between the bezel edge and the thinner lugs is good, as is the white-painted sweep hand.  However, the overly-simple shape of the lugs is very different from the gen in profile, and I doubt whether you can fit any genuine Omega pieces onto this rep. 

 

That said, the original cartel rep was pretty convincing when viewed head-on, and this one is even moreso.  Not a "super-rep", but reasonably good!  I'd like to see what good modders could do to the mid-case.

The gen NOS cases are getting extremely expensive now , seeing prices around £800 GBP :shock:  Interested in these rep cases, anybody get more feedback let us know. Rovin, where did you get the gen case? Did you do a full build?

Sorry, been away!

Yes, did a full gen parts bin build up. Was about a year ago, and whole thing cost $1,700, with movt service and replacement crown and tube. The Cousins supplied case CT had the crown sticking out too far and I stripped the thread on it when trying to get it closer to the case....

Details!!!!!

 

 

Potentially one could add the beveled shape to the lugs and side profile. Is this a screw-down crown?

I talked to Ken at Rafflestime, he has these cases and says the dial size is 31+mm. the real dial is smaller around 28mm

I think the bezel is way better but the insert is a dead giveaway. but getting better.
