    Launched to commemorate Omega’s 100th anniversary in 1948, the first Seamaster was quite different to the diver’s watches we think of when this name is mentioned today. Whereas the first models were only waterproof it wasn’t until the launch of the Seamaster 300 in 1957 to see the features that make this diver’s watch so recognizable. Officially rated water resistant up to 200 meters - the maximum depth to which the company could test its timepieces back then- it is fitted with a bidirectional Bakelite bezel and broad arrow hands to improve legibility.
    The present Seamaster 300, reference CK 2913-3 stands out, not only because it features the iconic “Broad Arrow” and “Lollipop” hands but also thanks to its very appealing condition. Its matt black dial has turn a rich and warm brown tobacco color whereas the luminous have taken a more caramel color. Even the original and rare countdown Bakelite bezel remains in appealing condition.
    The Omega Seamaster is the longest model still in production today and the reference 2913 is one of the most sought-after timepieces of this line. The present version is preserved in very attractive and original condition and is sure to please the discerning collector.

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
