Today's offering showcases this classic full size Seamaster 30 in beautifully restored condition. Not only is the case larger than those on all of the "dress Seamasters" - this one measures 35mm without the crown, in between the size of the Rolex Date and Datejust - so is its manually wound movement.
Although Omega powered the majority of their Seamasters with automatic movements, this Seamasters uses a mechanism from their robust 30 T2 based series.
The famous 30 T2 movement gained a reputation for reliability and accurate timekeeping serving the critical timing needs of the world's Armed Forces during World War II. As time progressed Omega added upgrades to the movement such as shock protection and extra jewels - as is the case with the Cal. 286 mechanism found in this watch.
This Seamaster 30 presents in beautiful restored condition - it presents very nicely on the wrist. It shows signs of previous polishing and a few remnants of wear from before the restoration on the edge of the bezel and inside of the lugs. It is fully Omega down to the hands and signed crown. The dial has been expertly refinished and most of the printing could pass as Omega factory done even under light magnification.
The original handwound movement has just been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmake. It is near pristine and running very true.
For the finishing touch we have installed a new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.
Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, and Ernie Els, Omega timepieces rank with those of Rolex and other of the world's fine Swiss firms.
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 often marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
