This Watch

On offer here is a beautiful example of a seamaster Cosmic that has well been taken care of. The sunburst brushing on the bezel compliments this fantastic and all original Graphite Grey dial which is in outstanding original condition. All parts (e.g. case, dial,  and crown) are authentic Omega as you would expect. The hand-wound movement winds easily and is running well just serviced in our onsite workshop. The vertically-brushed dial is not aged at all surviving so we'll over the last 50 plus years, Also notice the two outer seconds chapter. Elegant and stylish straight chrome hands with black onyx type stripes in a monocoque type front loading case which has been lightly polished.

The 35mm, stainless steel, almost tonneau case is complete with the famous Omega Seamaster hippocampus logo on the case back.  Inside is the mechanical, manual wind caliber 601, fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired the watch on a simple black leather strap, but it looks great dressed up with colour or even a mesh bracelet.

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.

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

What we think

It is a great fit for both men and women, and about as good a vintage, pre owned Omega as you will find.  The perfect for the vintage watch newbie or seasoned collector.  If you're looking for an affordable, attractive and reliable vintage watch, you'd be pushed to find a better example! Along with some 1970s retro styling and a somewhat sporty theme. This will not last long in stock!
