The Price of Omega Watches in South Africa

Omega is one of the most well-known luxury watches in the world, from its long legacy in the James Bond film franchise to its history of succeeding in the highest parts of space to the deepest parts of the ocean. If you love Omega watches as much as we do, keep reading to find out how much they cost in South Africa and where to get them. 


Omega Constellation- R181 000

Co-Axial Master Chronometer

No, it’s not rose-gold, this alloy is actually called Sedna gold. This metal has been trademarked by Omega and is eponymous of an orbiting planetoid that has been described as one of the “reddest in the solar system”. Aesthetically, this 18k hardware complements the steel strap.

A brand new constellation may cost you around R181 000 in 2022. However, it comes with the promise of longevity; its case, dial, crystal and strap is made from the highest quality materials which offer high resistance to fading or lacklustre over time. 

Omega Speedmaster - R133 000

Moonwatch Professional Co-Axial Master Chronometer

If you’re only going to have one Omega watch in your luxury watch collection, it has to be this one. Besides the fact that the Speedmaster has been a part of all 6 moon landings, its design is based on the fourth generation of Speedmasters. What’s more, the fourth generation was worn by American astronaut, Buzz Aldrin. Yes, the watch he took to the moon!

This specific type of Omega Speedmaster may cost you around R133 000. However, you will most certainly find this piece on the pre-owned market for a much better price.


Omega Seamaster - R95 000

Diver 300m Co-Axial Master Chronometer

You may recognise this watch worn by Pierce Brosnan in the James Bond: GoldenEye film. In fact, before the 1995 movie, James Bond would exclusively wear luxury Rolex watches, but the costume design team thought it was more realistic that the character wears a timepiece that the British Royal Navy would wear. Thus, the quartz Seamaster 300. The James Bond film franchise never went back since the current 007, Daniel Craig, continues to wear the Omega Seamaster to date. 


For the Diver 300m Co-Axial Master Chronometer, you can expect to pay around R95 000 for a brand new piece. For the quality and functionality this timepiece provides, it’s surprisingly well worth the price. 

Omega Seamaster - R211 000

PloProf 1200m Co-Axial Master Chronometer

The Seamaster PloProf is becoming increasingly popular, partly because of its unique shape, but also because of its great specs.

In the early 1970s, the Plongeur Professionnel, or ‘professional diver’ in French, was intended to serve technical diving. However, rather than fitting the watches with HEVs to deal with the helium issue, Omega constructed the Ploprof in such a way that helium molecules could not penetrate the watch casing. Although modern editions such as this Ploprof 1200m is fitted with HEVs, it still holds their distinctive shape. 

This watch is an all-rounder; wear it to drive, deep-dive or simply as an everyday watch. This is partly why it costs around R211 000 for a brand new PloProf, depending on the metal option and version you choose. 

Where To Find Authentic & Affordable Omega Watches

These days, many luxury watch collectors and newbie watch appreciators are opting for pre-owned luxury watches rather than brand new ones. Pre-owned markets open you up to a world of rare and limited edition watches that are no longer available in-store. It also saves you a couple of grands so that you can buy more luxury watches. Because luxury watch manufacturers like Omega, Rolex, Cartier and Longines use the highest grade metals along with master craftsmanship skills, luxury watches hold their value well and can last for lifetimes (yes, plural).
