Seamaster 1948 Omega Co‑Axial Master Chronometer Small Seconds 38 mm
Steel on leather strap
In tribute to the very first Seamaster models of 1948, this unique Limited Edition has remained true to the original post-war design, while introducing some very 21st century technology. The series is limited to 1,948 pieces.
The 38 mm stainless steel case houses an opaline silvery domed dial with a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock, as well as leaf style hands, indexes and a vintage OMEGA logo all in 18K white gold.
The caseback features a flat sapphire crystal which has been laser-engraved and lacquered by hand with a 70th Anniversary logo, a Chris-Craft boat and Gloster Meteor aircraft. This is in tribute to the aviators and mariners who all placed their trust in OMEGA’s timepieces during World War II.
Presented on a brown leather strap, the watch is driven by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8804, certified at the industry’s highest standard by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
