  • Catalogue Essay

    First released in 1948, the Seamaster was created to withstand the effects of the elements. The model was most notably waterproof, enabling sailors and marine workers to use the watch in their line of work. Over time, the Seamaster has seen many updates and variations to the dial, bezel and bracelet.

    The current reincarnation, cased in yellow gold, provides a glamorous update to the Seamaster chronograph, the black applied numerals and hands giving the watch an interesting flair. Preserved in excellent condition, the watch still carries a very strong hallmark between the lugs and retains its guarantee and original presentation box.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
