c. 1961 Omega Seamaster Vintage Mens Handwound Watch with Date - Stainless Steel


Item No. 8844

Today's offering showcases this cool and uncommon vintage Seamaster mens watch. Unlike most Seamasters from the era which were automatic, this reference was powered by Omega's uncommon caliber 610 handwound movement. The thinner movement allows for a thinner case than with automatic Seamasters.

It measures at approximately 34mm in diameter without the crown, the size of a Rolex Date watch and two millimeters smaller than a Rolex Datejust.

It has a monocoque - or one piece - case which insured water resistance and slim, elegant profile. The case when new achieved high water resistance ratings by not having a separate case back.

It has all of its original parts. It has just finished a true expertly done restoration and presents in gorgeous condition.

Its case presents as beautiful mint. And its dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

A Master Watchmaker has overhauled the uncommon movement which was originally adjusted to two positions. It is keeping very accurate time.

For the finishing touch a new calfskin leather strap and aftermarket Omega style buckle has been installed making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.

The Seamaster:
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 often marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
