The vintage Omega watch featured in today's offering is a prime example of one of the company's later vintage retro day date Seamaster watches with mechanical movement. As a Seamaster, it's a watch that has both elegant sport capabilities.
Here are some of its features:
- Pioneering so-called "double quick-set" day and date features - This is an early double quick-setting day date Omega watch. Omega created the 1020 and 1022 series movement with a double quick-set capability for convenient setting of the day and date. Though many connoisseurs associate the idea of the double quick-set watch with Rolex, which first offered the President model with this "new" feature in late 1990, Omega's 1020 series mechanisms were a pioneer of the technology in large scale production watches.
- Caliber 1020 movement. Fast beat (28,800 bph) balance system for greater accuracy.
- Seamaster model often sold through Tiffany & Co. Quite of few examples of this model, which was created by the Norman Morris Agency is New York, that were in solid gold were branded and sold through Tiffany & Co.
- Fully Omega and in presents in beautiful original condition. It is 100% Omega down to its dial, hands, signed winding crown, and even original Omega crystal and waterproofing seal!
Our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement.
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 attesting to its performance.
