1967 Omega Seamaster Vintage Mens Automatic Caliber 552 Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5985

Today's offering showcases this classic and pleasing original steel Omega Seamaster. It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, and signed winding crown.

Powering the watch is Omega's top tier caliber 552 with 24 jewels (seven more than in many similar Omega's), one of the last superior 500's series movements used before Omega began trying to reduce their costs. Omega's 500 series was one of the finest mass produced automatics from the era, and watches that feature these are excellent buys today because of their quality and relative ease and reasonable cost for servicing.

It is a company presentation watch factory emblazoned by Omega with the Price logo on the base back.

Its classic silver dial is original and mint. Its case presents very nicely. And its high-grade movement with fine swan's neck regulation is keeping time.

Its movement has been freshly cleaned and oiled. It is near pristine. For the finishing touch we installed a new Teju 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 its performance.

Note: We have a second identical example if you would like a pair.

Omega Seamaster:
When the Seamaster was first introduced in the 1948 they were embraced by water sports enthusiasts. They marry a strikinglook with a high performance movement.

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.
