Today's offering showcases this elegant mens Omega Seamaster Classic Accuset watch. This uncommon model was made for only a fairly brief time beginning in 1981.
The striking brown vignette dial with gilt printing is a perfect refinishing and the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. It has a great tone changing quality to it - depending on the light it can appear quite dark or quite light.
Note that it come out looking much brighter in the photos than it does in person.
The movement is its original Omega caliber 1337 quartz mechanism with quick-setting date. The hours are quick-setting for easy changing of the time zone and date, while the minutes and seconds hands are set by an "Accuset" push button set into the case designed for precision time setting.
But what is most striking about the watch is its incredible condition! It is in true expertly restored condition. It is fully Omega down to the hands and crown and presents on the wrist as as mint.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
A gorgeously restored three and a half decade old Omega that presents on the wrist almost like new!
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and Prince William, and one graced the wrist of President John F. Kennedy. Omega has been the official timekeeper for 21 Olympic Games and is the official chronometer of NASA.
Omega is perhaps best known by watch connoisseurs for its Seamaster line of dive watches. Introduced in 1948, they have been were embraced by water sports enthusiasts and marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
