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.

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

 

What we think

The Omega Seamaster Polaris has been a love/hate watch for most collectors for some time, this is down to the design. But when I look at this watch and reference, I think Omega were clearly ahead of the curve and I hope one day they bring this back as it is wonderful on the wrist! I would not hesitate to add this to your collection, this is a wonderful example in great condition ready to be worn and enjoyed. Again apparently yet another Gerald Genta unique design.
