Today's offering showcases this elegant mens Omega Seamaster Brest. This slightly uncommon model was only produced for a few years beginning in 1982 and has a classic look to it.
The strong black dial with gilt printing is a perfect refinishing and the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye. The movement is its original Omega caliber 1430 quartz mechanism with quick-setting date.
But what is most striking about the watch is its incredible condition! It is in true expertly restored condition. It is fully Omega down to the hands, crown and presents on the wrist as as mint.
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.
A gorgeously restored three and a half decade old Omega that presents on the wrist almost like new!
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.
