1978 Omega Seamaster Vintage Mens Bracelet Watch, Automatic, Day Date - 18K Gold Plated & Stainless Steel


Item No. 5456

Today's offering showcases this beautiful vintage Omega Seamaster day date. The head is 100% original and in beautiful mint condition. The previously installed band appears to be aftermarket done in an Omega style. Please inquire if you would like a leather band installed.

Here are some of its features:

 * Pioneering "double quick-set" day and date features - Omega created the caliber 1020 and higher jeweled 1022 movement like this one with a double quick-set capability for convenient setting of the day and date.Though many connoisseurs associate the idea of the double quick-set watch with Rolex, which first offered the President model with this "new" feature in late 1990, Omega was a pioneer of the technology in large scale production watches, evidenced by this example made about a decade before.
* Full size retro case - Its diameter is 35mm, one millimeter smaller than a Rolex Datejust
* Luxurious gold dial - The beautiful original dial is original and mint
* Faster beat (28,800 bph) balance system for greater accuracy

The head is 100% Omega down to the original signed crystal and waterproofing gasket! The band is the only part that has previously been replaced.

It has recently received a servicing. Photos of the inside available upon request.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
