I prefer casual timepieces, but since I have these and many readers have asked me what to get between the Omega Deville replica and the Globemaster, here’s a comparison of the two.I have few dress watches and two of them are Omega.
The Globemaster is a bit newer and it was launched at Baselworld, in 2015. It has a vintage inspired design, similar to the one of the Constellation. Just like the De Ville, the Globemaster Co-Axial combines superior technical aspects with a simple, dressy design.The Omega De Ville collection of watches was launched in 1967 and it’s a mix between the technical abilities Omega watches are known for and a simple and contemporary design. Even if these Omega replica watches are both dress watches, they are still quite different. Let’s see which one is the best Omega replica.
The Omega Deville Replica
The old De Ville collection was revamped and it resulted in some new, amazing models. This Omega Deville replica looks really good. I said it when I first reviewed it and I can say it again now. The simple, unmarked chronograph at 3 and 9 o’clock makes the dial look balanced and it also gives it a more casual look. Also, the date window located at 6 o’clock and the De Ville markings look like the one on the original. The case and bezel are plated with rose gold and it really gives it a nice finish. It gives it a nice shine and a luxury feel. The dial is covered with a scratch-proof crystal.
The back case of this De Ville is see through and it gives the whole design a nice touch. The leather strap and the Omega engraved folding clasp look good too. This is an Omega Deville quartz replica, meaning that it’s powered by automatic movements. The seconds hand has a good sweeping motion, but it could be improved.
This replica is a good copy and it copies all the details you can find on the authentic watch. Overall, I am pleased with its quality. It’s a nice casual watch that can be worn at dressier events and that’s why I like it. It’s not as thin as the Globemaster. Plus, the rose gold and blue combination looks good on any kind of watch.
The Omega Replica Globemaster
The Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer’s design was inspired by the one of the Constellation watches, from the 1960s. That is why it has a vintage feel. It features a pie-pan dial which is an interesting, vintage detail. The case is mostly brushed, but it also has some polished elements. The fluted bezel is also a particular feature. Besides this, the dial looks clean and symmetrical. The numerals are stylised lines and you can also find a date section on the dial. Apart from this and the writing that comes in three fonts, there aren’t other elements, so it makes it look clean and sleek. This replica looks pretty accurate, apart from the closing detail. The original one has a clasp.
Regarding its movements, this is an automatic Omega Japanese replica. It has good sweepings hands and there isn’t a big difference between this one and the De Ville.
The designs of these two Omega replica watches are quite different. One is more casual but it still works with dressier outfits, while the other one is more elegant. If my decision would be based solely on the design, I would choose the De Ville Omega because I like more the casual looking timepieces. The Globemaster Co-Axial is still a good looking watch, but I don’t wear a dress watch that often. As for their accuracy when it comes to copying the details found on the original models, they are both pretty precise and look like the authentic watches. The movements aren’t that different. They are both automatic Japanese watches and keep good time.
