This Watch

We have here a beautiful Omega Seamaster from 1964.  The original, satin silver dial is complete with the date window at 3 o'clock.  We love the clean lines of the baton markers and baton hands and the dial is simply signed 'Omega, Automatic,' with the famous Omega logo at 12 o'clock and 'Seamaster' at 6.  Nothing screams 'classic dress watch' like a 1960s Omega and this elegant model is one of our favourite of Omega's 1960s designs.  
The 34.5mm, stainless steel, unpolished screw-back case is complete with the Seamaster hippocampus on the case back.  Inside is the automatic, Omega caliber 562, fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired the watch on a brown leather strap but it looks good on anything.

Extra Points 

Founded by Louis Brandt in 1848, Omega started out as La Generale Watch Co., an unassuming, but international business. It wasn't until 1885, when the company had been taken over by Louis' sons, that the first mass-produced caliber, the Labrador, was released. By 1903, the company had renamed itself Omega and only two years later were they the official timekeepers at many sporting events across Switzerland. Omega stepped onto an international stage in 1932 as the official timekeepers at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the first of over 20 Olympic Games. Omega were one of the 12 companies, now known as the Dirty Dozen, commissioned to produce watches for the British Military during the Second World War. One of Omega's most iconic watches, the Seamaster, was introduced in 1948 to celebrate their 100th anniversary. Over 70 years later, it is still one of Omega's best selling watches. Omega made headlines in 1962 when Wally Schirra wore the Speedmaster as part of NASA's first crewed spaceflight programme, making the Speedmaster the first watch to enter space. It was only a few years before the Speedmaster became the official chronograph for the American space missions and was worn by Buzz Aldrin as well as the Apollo 13 crew. 

This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.
