Description:

 

From one of the most highly sought-after producers of high-end wristwatches this is the iconic Omega Seamaster. First released in the 1940s, the line has gone on to exponential success internationally. While its sister watch the Speedmaster is known for the first walk on the moon, the Seamaster is widely recognized as the “James Bond” watch, being one of the more popular variants his character has worn on screen. While the Bond character often wore the sporty variations, Omega also produced dress watches under the Seamaster line, of which category this watch would fall under. This exact model is catalogued in the official Omega archives and can be viewed online by following the link below:

Manufactured in Switzerland by Omega SA in 1976 this watch comes in a 38.5mm gold plated case with a mechanical automatic Omega movement. The watch shows Hours, Minutes, Seconds ( with smooth sweeping second hand ) as well as the Day and Date. The watch features an all gold tone aesthetic with black accents. The case has a geometric design with hooded lugs and both polished and brushed surfaces. Around the dial is racing style/train track style minute counter including 5 dashes in between each second. The applied Omega logo is present in gold located below the 12 o’clock indice and below that in black ink is the brand name “OMEGA” and the word “AUTOMATIC”. Beneath the center column of the hands is the model name “Seamaster” and at the base of the dial the words “- SWISS MADE – “, again in black ink. The hours are denoted by gold batons with black top surfaces which matches the hour and minute hands done in the same fashion. While the second hand is all gold. The Day and Date aperture is found at 3 o’clock and displays the read out in black overtop a white background and surrounded by a gold frame. The watch features a domed acrylic crystal and a beautiful subtle polished gold bezel. The screw in caseback of the watch features the iconic and much sought after vintage Seamaster emblem. The watch has and 18mm lug width and was originally sold on a leather strap, however some models did come with a steel bracelet.

 

This particular model is in fantastic condition for its age. It features much of the original brushed and polished surfaces and appears to have been thoughtfully cared for during its 48 years of age. The gold plating is in very good condition save for a few evenly worn spots located at the edge of the outer lugs on the four corners of the case. There are no overtly noticeable scratches to the case and the dial is in good condition for its age. The case appears to never have been polished. The caseback is in equally fine condition with no overtly noticeable defects. The crown of the watch does appear to be a replacement. However, we have an authentic vintage gold Omega crown and winding stem we can include with purchase if the buyer would like to have this swapped in on their own. The watch runs and keeps very precise timing as Omega is known for, and all functions such as day, date, and time work as expected. The watch winds smoothly by hand with satisfying clicks and also keeps wound sufficiently via its self-winding mechanism. That said, this is a vintage item, and its performance should be taken into consideration with its age. The watch is not waterproof.

 

 

 

Also included is a velvet pouch for storage as well as a polishing cloth – both new and unused items.

 

As the watch sold here is a vintage item, it does not come with the original packaging or paperwork.
