NAVAL PEDIGREE

By the 1970s, OMEGA had a solid reputation in the manufacture of divers’ watches. The OMEGA Seamaster Professional 200 m was one of that decade’s best. Notable for its octagonal steel case and luminous black dial, it was selected in 1978 as the watch of choice by The Naval Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service (SHOM).

Reflecting that support, the watch is today more commonly known as the OMEGA Seamaster Professional “SHOM”.
