Omega showcases its engineering prowess with its four sapphire lateral openings on the side of its latest creation, the Hour Vision. Harry Tan gives us his take on this future classic.
The release of the highly anticipated Replica Omega Hour Vision was a pleasure. Pictured here is the dual tone dial pink gold version. Its innovative new element – the sapphire glass walled case – can be seen clearly when the watch is held up close to the eye.
Apart from this new design detail, the watch is a well made classic three-hand watch. Its open exhibition back shows off a movement that is better finished than the regular lines from Omega. This is evidence that Omega is making a serious effort to break into the higher end of the luxury Omega replica watches market.
Fortunately, the well finished movement more than made up for the fact that the glass walled case doesn’t give a clear view of the details. Nevertheless, this new glass walled case is an innovative design detail. The dual tone dial on the pink gold is distinctive and its quality is clearly discernible. The SS model can almost be mistaken as a remake of an old model but for the glass walled case. On the wrist, both fake Omega watches felt like old friends to me.
One can understand why Omega replica has plans to make this watch the premium model of their collection.
