Today's offering showcases this classic original mens Omega Seamaster with early day date quartz movement. This uncommon model has a classic yet elegant retro look to it.

We are pleased to offer it in gorgeous fully original condition. It is 100% original down to the signed Omega crystal and even the waterproofing seal! It presents as a 9.2 out of 10.

Its movement is an Omega caliber 1345 quartz mechanism with quick-setting hour for easy changing of the time zone and date with original Omega "Accuset" push button crown for precision setting of the minutes and seconds.

Its case presents as mint. Its untouched original dial is better than near mint with only slight aging. Its movement is functioning very well.

Our Master Watchmaker has just installed a new battery and performed any needed servicing on the watch.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Omega Seamaster:
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.
