This Watch

We are very excited to have this incredible Omega Seamaster Professional 200m dive watch, model 396.1052 in stock!  It is complete with the date function at 3 o'clock, which sits on a gorgeous, gloss-black dial. The aged, sword hands have a creamy patina to the lume, and the dial also has mixed dot and baton, lumed hour makers with outer minute track.

The watch itself sits in an unpolished, stainless steel, screw-down case with a fresh hippocampus on reverse. It has Uni-directional, black, stainless steel bezel and screw-down crown with crown guard.  There is quick-change setting for moving the hour hand and quick-change setting for the date.

The watch sits on a integrated, stainless steel, 19cm, Omega bracelet with single flip lock and dive-suit extension, which has us yearning to be at the diving in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean! No longer for bubble makers, though - this is a vintage watch and now no longer waterproof.

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. Omega are still involved with NASA and have been instrumental in creating vital pieces of equipment for space exploration. Omega's reputation continued to soar in the 1990s with Omega Seamaster worn by Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. As well as post-1995 James Bonds, Omega has been worn by the likes of Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy, Prince William, Rory McIlroy, Ringo Starr, Michael Phelps, Cindy Crawford and George Clooney.

The watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with our 12 months, non-waterproof service cover.

 

What We Think

We love all dive watches but this Omega Seamaster is a particular treat! Produced before Pierce Brosnan made it famous, and only now just old enough to be classed as vintage, this sporty number is an absolute steal!
