VINTAGE OMEGA SEAMASTER

Every guy needs a watch and I have two. One is my everyday watch, a Seiko Divers 200 which I'll post later in the year and my other is my dress watch.

A 1952 Omega Seamaster Automatic with Date at the 6.


This watch was purchased new by my Grandfather in Switzerland in 1952.

It's a Bumper wind Seamaster with what I've found out is a rare date window at the 6 position. The watch did not come with it's original band and I have a replacement on it right now. I'd like to buy a real Alligator band, but they're fairly pricey so I think I'll make one for it.

It's a gold filled watch with the original omega crown. I had this watch serviced about 7 years ago and it still runs excellent. It also still glows which is a little scary since it's over 50 years old.....


So a guy needs a great watch, cause if you're wearing a suit and you point and someone sees your Casio, well, that just won't do.
