Today's offering showcases this rare and classically cool retro mens Omega Seamaster Calypso. Unless you're a true ardent fan of 80's quartz era Seamasters you probably haven't yet heard of the Calypso...very few of them were made.
Its case is ultra thin with an elapsed time rotating bezel and screwed down crown. Its dial has a pleasing black divers style design. Powering it is its original Omega caliber 1432 quartz mechanism with quick-setting date.
It presents in true expertly sympathetically restored condition. Before fading to a more tropical blue, the insert would originally have been a strong black.
The dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has installed a new battery and performed any needed servicing.
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.
A gorgeously restored three and a half decade old Omega!
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.
