Description

In tribute to the very first Seamaster models of 1948, this unique Limited Edition timepiece 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 Dauphine style hour/minute hands, central second hand, 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 blue leather strap, the watch is driven by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, certified at the industry’s highest standard by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is certainly the most conventional of watchmaking materials for outer craftsmanship, and offers beauty, strength and affordability. OMEGA uses 316L stainless steel. Known for its corrosion-resistance and high lustre after polishing, this material is often the ideal choice for watches in both daily-use and high-stress situations such as diving and adventure.

Sapphire Crystal

To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.

A new look for your watch

Your watch and strap should go together perfectly, but that doesn't mean you can't experiment with different combinations. Why not mix things up and see what happens? You may discover a look that's as individual as you are.

The advantages
of this watch

Behind the elegance of every Master Chronometer timepiece is the highest level of testing: 8 tests over 10 days, to ensure superior precision and anti‑magnetic resistance. We’ve raised our standards. You can too.
