Omega Seamaster




You’ll never see another just like it, I guarantee it. Its dial might be a beautiful gradient copper now but originally, it was white. You see, extreme exposure to the elements (humidity and the sun, namely) can have some pretty crazy effects on vintage dials.

And look at this classic Seamaster case – thick, beveled and seemingly unpolished.

Its broad dauphine hands and matching indices add so much to the durable steel aesthetic.

And the inclusion of its original Omega crown doesn’t hurt either.

But lets back up and think about Omega for second. It’s a brand that many of us so wrongfully take for granted. Its significance stretches from the wrist of John F Kennedy to the moon. The brand has been producing top notch watches since 1848 and they haven’t stopped since.

This model, the Seamaster, is one of the first watches I fell in love with. It’s well built, has its place in history, and more than that, when you buy one, you’re getting a ton of value for your buck. As we’ve said before – they claim no status, only style and respect for history, tasteful design, and practical mechanics.
