In keeping with the cool and funky sub-dials I’ve spoken about so far, I’d be remiss not to include the Swiss fake Omega Speedmaster ST2 Ultraman on this list. I am sure many of you reading this will be able to appreciate the coolness of “the” sub-dial on this best copy watch. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well, you are in for a treat.
In standard lighting, the AAA replica Omega Speedmaster ST2 Ultraman is a superb-looking watch. You have the classic Speedmaster Professional layout with flashes of red to add highlights to the overall aesthetic. The sub-dials are sunken slightly, adding a bit of depth to the dial.
However, turn off the lights, and that’s when the going seconds sub-dial at nine o’clock comes into its own. As soon as it goes dark, the sub-dial reveals a lumed silhouette of 1:1 fake Omega Ultraman’s head! Is it whimsical? Yes. Does it add anything functional? Not really. Is it super cool? Hell yes, it is!
You don’t see this type of sub-dial decoration too often. On our recent trip, Rob and I were discussing fantasy watch designs of the Swiss made fake Omega, and we both mentioned this technique of luming a logo/pattern onto an otherwise innocuous sub-dial. We both said we wanted to see more of this, as it’s just terrific fun. Granted, it wouldn’t be appropriate for all high quality replica watches UK, but for those where it would be? Do it!
