Today's offering showcases this classic mens Omega Seamaster. This uncommon model was only produced from 1980 to 1983 and has a classic retro yet elegant look to it.
The dial has been meticulously custom refinished to a gorgeous burnt sienna / brown copper tone - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. It is fully Omega and presents as a 9.7 out of 10.
Its movement is an Omega caliber 1342 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.
But what is most striking about the watch is its incredible condition! It is in true expertly restored condition. It is 100% Omega down to the waterproofing seal.
The dial looks just a hair more brown in the photos than it does in person. It has a beautiful brown copper tone - just a hair more red/copper tone. We worked hard to insure that the photos look as close as possible to how it presents in person, and it is very close.
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.
Photos of the inside available upon request.
An almost four dcade old Omega that presents beautifully on the wrist!
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and 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 were embraced by water sports enthusiasts and marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
