Buying a Replica SM300M

Recommended Posts

I decided not to shell out $3200 for a gen pre-2018 model with the date at 3:00.

 

In your experience, which Factory produces the best Omega Professional Seamaster 300 replica (OM, VS, etc.).

 

I’m looking at the model with the black dial and black ceramic bezel.

Look at the trusted dealers websites and then ask specific questions. The ‘best’ for one is not the ‘best’ for another person.

There are several versions of the PO Chrono. I’d choose one with an A7750 movement.

I agree with Kernow but once you have the watch start looking for a Gen ETA Movement to install, costs a bit more than servicing the asian movement but if you plan on using the chronograph function its the way to go

The QA/QC isn’t that good with all of the so called “factories” popping up.
I received a SMP Diver 300, 2018 version, and I’m experiencing 2 problems already after 2 weeks of having it.

1. The slots in some of the bracelet screws are too shallow for the screw driver to properly seat. I have to order a set of extractors to get them out.

2. Really important. After pulling the crown out to sync the time, the quick set date wheel turns when pushing the crown in to lock it down in the case.

I mentioned both issues to the TD and haven’t received a response yet after 2 days which is unusual for this TD; he usually responds quickly.
