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 a beauty!
The case is a "beefy lugs"/"fat lug"-case and is in a very good condition with sharp lugs/bevels. The case have some scratches from use, but just small as you can see in the photos. The crown is original and in very good condition. The dial is the most spectacular detail of this watch - a beautiful two tone dial with beautiful pumpkin-dots. The dial have developed some patina that you can observe in the middle zon. The bracelet matches the watch perfectly even if it is a No Name one and is in good condition even if the end links show some scratches, especially underneath.
