1978 Omega Seamaster Vintage Mens Quartz Day Date Watch with Bracelet - Stainless Steel


Item No. 6926

Today's offering showcases this classic mens Omega Seamaster. This uncommon model has a classic retro look to it.

With a diameter just over 35mm without the crown, it is virtually the same size as Rolex Datejust.

Powering the watch is its original Omega caliber 1345 quartz mechanism with quick-setting hour for easy changing of the time zone or date. It also has a corrector pin for quick-setting the date once the day has been set. One of Omega's Accuset movements, it has a button in the crown for precision electronic setting of the minutes and seconds.

But what is most striking about the watch is its incredible condition. It is fully Omega down to the crystal and waterproofing gasket! It has just finished a true expertly done cosmetic restoration - it presents as gorgeous condition.

Its case is mint. And its dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

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.

A painstakingly restored four decade old Omega that presents like new on the wrist!

Omega Seamaster:

Kennedy. Omega has been the official timekeeper for 21 Olympic Games and is the official chronometer of NASA.
