SB, I have no idea about this factory, the full name of SB is “So Boring”, why they use such a weird name? Most people said that SB is also the previous VS, both are the same one factory, most watch dealers have also admitted this. I have a doubt about this, first, why does VS change to use another name ? Second, even VS has decided to use another name, why they choose a name? SB, it is not like a name from a big factory. For security name, I do not think there is a need for VS to change a name, because they did not do this when they started to make Rolex two years ago, yes, before the raid, VS has already made Rolex replicas, I know this, so perhaps you will say that VS has decided to use another name recently when they considered to recover the production of their Panerai and Omega watches. This needs further review to see if the new Panerai or Omega replica watches coming out from VS will be under the name of “SB”.
The new Omega watch published by SB is from Planet Ocean 45.5mm collection, it is a Ultra Deep model, the real watch is 6000m water resistant, yes, a ultra deep water resistance, few watches can achieve such an impressive depth. The watch is very big and thick, it even looks stronger and robust than the Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA of Rolex, maybe it will become the favorite diver’s watch for some people who only love big guys like this. I thought the factory will sell the replica watch at a high price, but SB positioned the watch at a very good price point.
The replica watch has a so big case and is also measured to be very thick, which is up to 18mm, the watch is fully made with solid 316L stainless steel, so it is not only big but also feels heavy on hand, do not try if you want to buy just because it looks good. The black bezel insert is ceramic made and is also wider than the ceramic bezel on other Planet Ocean models. Checking from the side, the lugs look obviously robust, the case is delicately brushed with a high glossy Omega logo on the brushed crown, the sapphire crystal is a little high above the bezel, not too high. The screw-down solid case back has a big hippocampus engraving.
The dial is blue, but not pure blue, it is gradient blue, the color looks darker on the edge of the dial, while more blue on the center of the dial. The water resistant depth is printed on the dial in white, it is “6000m/20000ft”, absolutely the replica can not dive that deep, the factory claims it is 30m waterproof. Hour markers and hour hand will emit a blue lume light in dark conditions, while the minute hand will emit a green lume light. The dial on the replica keeps a very close color to that of genuine.
The replica is equipped with a clone 8912 movement, according to the movement decription about this watch on most trusted dealers’ website, I believe that this replica watch is made by VS factory. Once there is time and chance to open the case back, I will show you the movement inside. At last, I want to tell you that the gray Daytona below will be available soon from Clean factory, its dial lume looks perfect.
