1956 Omega Vintage (Seamaster) Mens Automatic, Waterproof Tropical Dial Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. PG02

Today's offering showcases this classic original mid-century mens Omega tropical dial. In basic constitution it is a Seamaster, though not so named, sharing the same Caliber 490 movement and waterproof calatrava case as certain watches in that line.

The waterproof stainless steel case is in excellent condition . The toned luminous matches the wonderful original "tropical" dial - the silver has warmed to a sepia tone, giving the watch a true vintage look. The well-made movement is clean and keeping time.

We have equipped the watch with a crocodile band and brand new Omega buckle making it ready for immediate use.

Included with the purchase is a 90-day international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

Celebrating humanity's supreme achievements and performances, from man's landing on the moon to the Olympic competitions, Omega watches have been prized for generations by those seeking the most precise timepieces in the world. Since its creation in 1848 by Louis Brandt, Omega has relentlessly pursued watchmaking perfection, earning worldwide honors and fame.

Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els and anyone desiring to wear a watch of excellence, Omega timepieces rank with Rolex and other of the world's top Swiss firms.
