Today's offering showcases this gorgeously restored Omega Seamaster from c. 1979.
It is a later model vintage Seamaster. 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. It is the finer higher jeweled version of the 101x series, with twenty-three jewels.
It is fully Omega down to the original hands, signed winding crown, and even its original Omega waterproofing seal!
It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. Our photos couldn't do it justice!
Its case presents as mint. Its original dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has disassembled it down to its last screw and overhauled it. Although the date does not perfectly align in the window, it does align more closely to the center than the photos seem to suggest.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
A four decade old Omega that presents like new!
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.
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.
