1950 Omega Vintage (Seamaster) Mens Automatic, Waterproof "Hammer Rotor" Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. PG03

Today's offering showcases a vintage mens Omega Ref. 2576-10. Though this reference watch was normally badged and sold by Omega as part of their Seamaster line this example was not. (We have sold several Seamaster-signed  ref. 2576-14 that are identical to this watch. The only difference is the Seamaster signature).

The rugged, stainless steel case is near mint plus. The desirable "Explorer style" silver dial with Arabic numerals for the primary hours is original, also in excellent condition. It has a slight tropical tone, having warmed to a light sepia giving the watch a true vintage look.

And the classic "hammer rotor" Omega movement is clean and keeping time, serviced previously a number of years ago by one of our watchmakers.

We have also equipped the watch with a new crocodile strap and new Omega buckle making ready for immediate enjoyment.

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

Omega Seamaster:
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.

Omega is perhaps best known by watch connoisseurs for its Seamaster line of watches. When they were first introduced in 1948 they quickly became a favorite of water sports enthusiasts and combine a striking look with a high performance movement.
