The Seamasters was launched in 1948 and have achieved worldwide fame for their rugged reliability. The Seamaster family had its origins in the watches supplied to the British Airforce during the second world war. In 1954, 50 cases equipped with O-ring gaskets were submitted to a succession of extremely severe tests, both in the factory and at the Swiss Laboratory for Watchmaking Reswarch. Each case perfectly resisted pressures of 6 kg/cm2 (corresponding to a depth of 60 metres) and temperatures from -40 C to +50 C, all without showing any trace of water infiltration or humidity.

This is one of a kind. Look at the condition of this pristine Omega Automatic Seamaster. We have not seen many vintage watches in this condition. The case is a "beefy lugs"-case and is amazing, look at the unpolished chamfers! The case have some minor scratches from use, but just small as you can see. The crown is original and in very good condition. The dial is the most spectacular detail of this watch - a rare original dial without damage. This is a true stunner and something for the real connoisseur.
