Today's offering showcases this classic mens Omega Seamaster. Built for only a short time beginning in 1977, this uncommon watch has a classic retro yet elegant look to it. Its case is wonderfully curved, and its champagne dial gives it a luxurious feel. It has the look of a solid gold Omega for a fraction of the price.
The photos don't begin to do it justice!
It is full size measuring 35.5mm in diameter without the crown, about the same size as a Rolex Datejust.
Powering the watch is its original Omega caliber 1342 quartz movement with quick-setting hour for convenient changing of the time zone and date.
But what is most striking about the watch is its gorgeous original condition...it is 100% Omega down to its original signed crystal and even its original Omega waterproofing seal!
Its 18K gold plated case is in just short of mint condition. It has hairline slivers of gold wear on the underside edge of the lugs that are difficult to see with the naked eye. The photos make them much more pronounced. It is very clean even in the "engine bay" hidden underneath the back. Its case back bears an original Japanese inscription which we chose to leave intact. On the wrist it presents as mint.
Its original and untouched dial is mint with mint luminous.
A Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and installed a new battery. 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 and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

An four decade old original Omega that looks nearly like new on the wrist!
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.
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.
