The hippocampus, the Chinese name of the Omega Seamaster, is known to all Chinese under the sky. It’s not just Seamaster’s tricky interpreting, but rather the Seamaster’s Seahorse logo. Good translations seem to be handy, but they are very satisfying. Just like the seamlessness of the sky, the so-called Cinda is also the case – the hippocampus is an example.
Omega’s exports fell from 23.9 million watches in 1937 to 11.8 million in 1944, but if the replica watches Omega did not receive a large order for military watches, the situation could be even worse. After the Second World War, the sales of Omega watches quickly caught up with the pre-war figures, reaching 18 million by the end of 1945.
Celebrating the company’s centenary celebration in 1948, Omega management decided to invest 20 million Swiss francs to build a new factory to increase its production capacity and begin to shift its focus to a booming “professional” market. Fake watches Omega Omega based on the experience of the British military to do waterproof watches during World War II, want to use rubber to produce waterproof ring, instead of the common lead ring, shellac, grease. The final series called “Seamaster Hippocampus” was born. The Ref. CK 2518 small three-pin Chronometer Observatory version and the Ref. CK 2577 Big Three-Piece Edition were introduced, and the water-resistant depth reached 60 meters.
During the visit to Venice, the designer JEAN-PIERRE BORLE discovered the seahorse decoration on the side of the gondola boat and made the pattern a symbol of the hippocampus series. Because the early stage of the hippocampus series was aimed at waterproof design, the target customers were people who were biased towards sports, rural areas and outdoor, so they won the reputation of “professional”. In 1957, Omega introduced the Speedmaster and the Railmaster, which are also known as “professional” special watches, so the hippocampus logo is not limited to the Seamaster series.
In 2012, the London Olympics was held soon. In order to commemorate the birth of the Seamaster series in the year, it was originally derived from the experience of making waterproof watches for the British army during World War II. Therefore, Omega launched the fake watch Ref. CK 2518 Replica with Ref.2202. The movement, certified by the COSC Observatory, is limited to 1948 pieces.
