Brief history of the Omega Seamaster.
First released in 1948 which was also Omega’s 100th Anniversary, the Omega Seamaster was designed to be a robust watch while still being very elegant making it one of the world’s first watches that could be worn with a suit and tie as well as a wet suit in an age where blue collar watches and white collar watches never overlapped.
The Omega Seamaster was in fact born as a result of World War II where the British were after a watch with superior reliability and water resistance with very high precision.
After the war the Omega Seamaster became known as the watch to have on your wrist and one that would never let you down, and is a testament to the classic vintage Omega Seamaster watches that we have on offer.
