1978 Omega Seamaster Vintage Mens TV Watch, Automatic, Day Date - Stainless Steel


Item No. 6067

Today's offering showcases this very pleasing vintage day date Omega TV shaped Seamaster. It is fully Omega down to the hands and crown, and presents in gorgeous restored condition.

Here are some of its features:

  • Pioneering "double quick-set" day and date features - Omega created the calibers 1020 and the higher jeweled 1022 movements with a double quick-set capability for convenient setting of the day and date. Though many connoisseurs associate the idea of the double quick-set watch with Rolex, which first offered the President model with this "new" feature in late 1990, Omega was a pioneer of the technology in large scale production watches, evidenced by this example made over a decade before.
  • TV style retro case
  • Faster beat (28,800 bph) balance system for greater accuracy

It has been meticulously restored. The case presents in mint condition. The dial is a perfect refinishing - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. And the bracelet presents as just short of mint.

A Master Watchmaker has just freshly serviced the movement, which is very clean.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.

A three decade old Omega that looks almost like new on the wrist!
