In a way, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Replica in the photo looked very familiar…yet also very different. I scrolled back up to the picture and took a second look. And then it struck me: the guy had swapped the bezel on his Seamaster 300M, exchanging its original black one for a blue one — and it looked fantastic!
Swapping a black bezel for a blue one on an Omega Seamaster Diver 300M
Let’s take a closer look at that Seamaster 300M first. I am really likes black-dialed watches, so i has a lot of those in the collection, including this AAA Omega Replica. But i was thinking about spicing it up a little bit for the summer months. He remembered a Seiko 5 mod that he used to have, which had a black dial and a blue bezel. I liked that combination very much and thought it could work nicely for the Seamaster 300M as well, so i searched for an original blue bezel and changed it out. Luckily, it worked just as great as it had for that Seiko 5.

The next example is also an Omega Seamaster 300M Super Clone, but this time, it’s the older Professional reference 2254.50.Apart from the fact that I think it’s a very good-looking combination, he also says the new bezel is much easier to turn than the original SMP bezel. It’s funny how much the character of a watch can change by “simply” swapping the bezel.

Another example of a Luxury Perfect Omega Replica Watches bezel swap is this highly modded Speedmaster reference 3570.50. This one was also modded by Shane — yes, the very same guy, who has a super cool album of his modded watches here. Anyway, just like him, I’m also very fond of the asymmetrical looks of the Speedmaster Pulsations bezel insert. There’s something about the combination of the big text on the left, the numerals on the right, and the open space in between that really speaks to me. And the good thing is that it’s not even that hard to change out those inserts, so if you feel like swapping it, you can quickly do it yourself.
What I love about Shane’s Omega copies cheap ebay story is how he says that he rediscovered the joy of watch collecting through his modding projects. He now better understands how the smallest adjustments can make a big difference, and he appreciates his watches more now than before, even the ones he didn’t mod. I can very well imagine that this happens after you start fiddling with your watches a bit more. However, I’m still a bit hesitant about starting to modify mine.
