1960's Omega Vintage Mens Seamaster Cosmic Retro Watch, Date, Auto - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5180

Omega is often known by watch lovers for its Seamaster line of recreational water-sports watches. Combining a striking look with a high performance movement, they've received a strong following since vintage times.

The vintage Seamaster showcased in today's offering is a truly wonderful example of this phenomenon. It has been restored so that it presents as very high condition levels and looks nearly like new on the wrist.

It features a striking retro design and is powered by a very well-regarded 560 series quick-setting automatic movement. The case is an unusual and uncommon Cosmic design with lugs that are facets of the case. It's a cool look.

It is fully Omega down to the signed crown. The monococque - or one-piece - case, which achieved high water resistance ratings by not having a separate case back, is in beautiful condition as is the original Omega bracelet. The dial has been expertly refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye - and the movement is running true.

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.
