If you are looking to learn how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches, then you are for sure in the right place.

Only by reading this Omega Planet Ocean real vs fake guide, you are going to easily know how to differentiate between the authentic item vs the fake Omega Planet Ocean watches.

We are going to sort out the information in our fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean guide by individual steps, so that no information will get mixed.

Along with every step of the guide on how to authenticate Omega Planet Ocean watches, we are going to attach fake vs authentic Omega Planet Ocean images.

These images will help you easily determine which watch is the real one and which one is the counterfeit.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches is to look at the dial of the watch and all elements present there, as no replica Planet Ocean Omega watch has these elements properly detailed, while the authentic Omega watches always have their dials and elements consistent, without any flaw.

How to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches

Step 1: Fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean dial text and details

Just as we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the text on the dial as the most reliable way on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches.

First of all, most of the fake watches have their numbers or other elements improperly positioned on the dial, as the numbers are commonly not parallel on the fake items.

In the fake vs real Omega Placent Ocean image above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its numbers composing the “12” hour marker not parallel.

On the other hand, the replica Omega Planet Ocean watch does not have its numbers any close to being perfectly parallel as the legit item’s numbers, as the fake item has its numbers crooked.

At the same time, you can notice how the fake Omega Planet Ocean watch has its numbers looking too bright, and while looking at the genuine watch, it is noticeable how its numbers have a darker shade.

Now, let’s also have a look at another fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean image with a different fake watch example from the one shown above.

In most cases, the counterfeit Planet Ocean Omegas will have their inscription at the wrong thickness and kerning between the characters, but most importantly, the fake watches never have the correct colour for their text.

fake vs real omega plent ocean

In the image with the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean watches above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its numbers improperly coloured.

That is because the fake watch has the orange color shade looking too saturated and too hued, while the authentic characters look lighter.

In fact, the main flaw with the fake watch’s orange colour is that its letters are really concentrated, while the genuine Omega Planet Ocean watch has its colours looking washed, rather than the darker look of the fake orange.

The critical flaw on the fake watch is at the “Seamaster” text, where you can see how the fake Omega Planet Ocean watch has its text coloured in a color that is closer to red than orange, unlike the orange color present in the hour markers, or the bezel – for the model that has the orange bezel.

Please be aware that some models also come with the “Seamaster” text in white color, like in the image above – this doesn’t mean that the watch is not authentic, however if the text is colored in orange, keep an eye on its shade and if it’s obviously lighter (or darker), it can be a red flag.

Step 2: Real vs fake Omega Planet Ocean anti-reflective coating

Proceeding to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches, we are now going to look at the fake vs real Planet Ocean Omega watches for their anti-reflective coating.

When we say “anti-reflective coating”, we are talking about how light reflects on the dial’s window.

In fact, the authentic Omega Planet Ocean watches should reflect no light on top of their dial, as what is below that window should always be easily readable.

This is mainly because of the anti-reflective coating – a chemical treatment applied by the authentic manufacturer on the watch’s crystal.

Some of the replicas have this treatment applied too, but not to that same extent, neither to the same quality.

In the image with the authentic vs fake Omega Planet Ocean watches above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its anti-reflective either missing or not being present as much as the authentic watch’s coating.

That is because the fake watch has its dial reflecting a lot of light on top of its window, whereas the authentic watch, being also placed in the light, has its elements properly legible.

In fact, the authentic Omega Planet Ocean watch has its dial’s details easily observable, without any hassle of reading what’s on the dial.

Step 3: Check the engravings on the back of your Omega Planet Ocean watch

Going to the third method on how to authenticate Omega Planet Ocean watches, we are now going to flip the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean watches upside down, and we will have a look at the inscriptions there.

Keep in mind that the information at this step only applies to the gold authentic Omega Planet Ocean watches, as this inscription is tied to the watch made out of gold material.

There is also a known fact that a batch of stainless steel replica Omega Planet Ocean watches were available on the market with the wrong inscription.

With this being said, let’s have a quick look at the reference authentic vs replica Omega Planet Ocean image linked below.

real vs fake omega planet ocean

In the image with the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean watches above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its “Au750” inscription present. This happens even though the watch is made of stainless steel.

That “Au750” inscription present on the authentic Omega Planet Ocean watch means that the watch is made out of gold. This aspect can also be seen with the naked eye, however, because of the yellow gold present.

If that was not clear, let’s have a look at a more detailed fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean image below.

Once again, in the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean image above, you can see how the fake watch has the inscription which should not be there.

“So, what do you mean by all of this?”, you may be asking… Well, what we mean is that the “Au750” inscription must only be present on the authentic watches made out of gold, and can be present on the replica watches which are not made out of gold – another possible red flag.

Now that you know what to look for on the rear side of the Omega Planet Ocean watch, let’s see what’s next at the fourth step of the guide on how to authenticate Omega Planet Ocean watches.

Step 4: Analyze the pearl on your Omega Planet Ocean watch

Going to the fourth method on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches, we will have a look at the pearl at the top of the bezel.

In most cases, the counterfeit Omega brand watches have this pearl improperly positioned.

omega planet ocean authentic vs fake

In the image with the authentic vs replica Omega Planet Ocean watches above, we have shown you how the fake watch indeed has its pearl misplaced.

That is because the fake watch’s pearl is placed too much to the bottom left side of the triangle, whereas on the authentic watch, the pearl is perfectly centred.

In fact, looking at the authentic Omega Planet Ocean watch’s pearl, you can see how this little pearl is perfectly having the same distance from the left and to the right sides of the triangle.

Furthermore, also always keep an eye on the depth at which the pearl is mounted inside the metallic circle.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.

The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity, but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Inspect the engravings on the bezel of your Omega Planet Ocean

Since at the previous step on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches we were looking at the bezel of the two watches, we are now going to remain in the same area, but this time we are going to analyze the inscriptions present on the bezel.

Bear in mind that an authentic Omega Planet Ocean watch should rarely and hardly fade out its inscriptions on the bezel.

omega planet ocean authentic vs replica

We’ve mentioned that because, as you can see in the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean image above, the fake watch has its engravings really faded out.

That is because the fake watch does not have its inscriptions as visible as they should be, and that’s most likely due to wear as much as it might be due to the quality of the engravings.

On the genuine Omega Planet Ocean watch, things go differently, as the inscriptions at which we’ve pointed out are perfectly visible, without any fading out, even though the watch is not new and has already been worn for a larger period of time.

Remember that any cracking on these inscriptions may also indicate that you’re looking at a counterfeit Omega Planet Ocean watch.

Step 6: Verify the (orange) shade of the bezel on your Omega Planet Ocean

For the next step of the guide on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches, we are going to talk about the color shade of the watches that have the orange bezel, as these are really one of the most popular colors for this watch.

First of all, let’s have a look at the reference genuine vs fake Omega Planet Ocean watch image linked below.

how to spot fake omega planet ocean

As you can see ion the image with the real vs replica Omega Planet Ocean watches above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its bezel with the wrong shades of orange.

Going more into detail, on the ring side of the fake watch, you can see how the bezel is too light, and on the left side of the bezel, you can notice how the orange colour is too dark.

This matter can be subject to the source of light and reflections in the room or environment, however, it is well known that top-quality replicas available on the market have this flaw easily visible with the naked eye.

On the other hand, the authentic Omega Planet Ocean watch has its shade of orange the same all around the bezel and 100% consistent with the same orange color available on elements present on the dial.

Step 7: Check the date window on your Omega Planet Ocean watch

Moving on to the seventh method on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches, we are now going to look at the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean watches for their date wheel.

fake vs authentic planet ocean seamaster

In the image with the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean watches above, you can see how the authentic watch has the two of its rectangles around the date wheel looking deep, as there are two visible rectangles. In other words, those look like they are in two separate layers.

On the other hand, the replica Omega watch has its date wheel presenting only one rectangle, whereas on the authentic watch, there are two rectangles.

Step 8: Brief the end links on your Omega Planet Ocean item

As for the eighth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Omega Planet Ocean watches, we are now going to look at the fake vs real Planet Ocean Omega watches for their end links.

These end links are actually the links at the end of the bracelet, that connect directly with the watch’s case.

omega planet ocean seamaster real vs fakfe

In the image with the fake vs real Omega Planet Ocean watch image above, we have pointed out how the fake watch has its end links angled horizontally, somehow bended on the interior of the bracelet.

Looking at the genuine watch, you can notice how its end links are placed almost vertically and parallel, because those are rigid and not as flexible as on the replica Omega Planet Ocean watches.

How can I spot fake Omega Planet Ocean in 60 seconds?

The 8 detailed steps outlined above for the real vs fake Omega Planet Ocean watch might not be so practical when you are in a hurry or when you want to buy the item online.

That is why we have compiled this quick 60 seconds solution to legit checking your Omega Planet Ocean watch. Below are the top 8 indicators that can help you determine if you have a fake or real Omega Planet Ocean watch.

  1. Inspect all the elements present on the dial of your watch. Mostly, the fake watches don’t have different inconsistencies and might not have the “Seamaster” text printed in the right shade of orange
  2. Brief the anti-reflective coating on your watch’s crystal. The genuine watches should hardly reflect any light, while most of the fake ones easily reflect light
  3. Have a look at back of your watch. Only the authentic gold watches should have the “Au750” inscriptions, and not the watches that are not made out of gold
  4. Check the pearl on the bezel of your watch. The replica items commonly have their pearl not perfectly centered inside the rectangle

  7. Examine the date window on your watch. The fake watches commonly have only one rectangle, and two squares around the date wheel’s text
  8. Authenticate the end links on your watch. Mostly, the fake watches have their end links’ too flexible and able to point to the inside of the bracelet
