Today's offering showcases this classic and meticulously restored c. 1977 Omega Seamaster. Built for only a short time this uncommon Seamaster has a classic and elegant look to it, rather than the more retro vibe of most quartz Seamasters from the era.
It is full size measuring approximately 36mm in diameter without the crown by 42mm long, the same size as a Rolex Datejust.
It has its original higher-quality than most early Omega Swiss quartz movement with quick-setting hour for easy changing of the time zone and date.
It has 100% original parts down to even the original red Omega waterproofing seal! It has just finished a true expertly done restoration - it presents as a 9.7 or 9.8 out of 10. The photos couldn't do it justice!
The case presents as gorgeous mint. The matte black has just been painstakingly restored - the printing could pass as Omega factory done even under magnification.
As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and installed a new battery.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap with Omega style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
A classic Seamaster that presents like new on the wrist!
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, 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 embraced by water sports enthusiasts and marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
