1979 Omega Vintage Seamaster Mens Watch, Automatic, Date - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5543

Today's offering showcases this handsome later model vintage Seamaster that presents beautifully. Built at a time when the quartz revolution was taking hold and Omega was cutting costs, this watch with automatic Cal. 1010 movement with quick-setting date carried on the mechanical tradition of the Seamaster.

Note that the lugs appear to have been previously customed added to the case.

The dial has been truly expertly restored - the printing could pass as Omega factory done. The watch presents in gorgeous condition - about a 9.5 out of 10. It is fully Omega down to the hands, crown, and even signed crystal and waterproofing seal.

Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the automatic Omega movement, and it is keeping very accurate time.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a new timing certificate.

Omega Seamaster:
Worn on the wrists of celebrities Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, and Ernie Els, Omega timepieces rank with Rolex and other of the world's best Swiss firms.
