Why We Love This Watch

It's easy to forget that the Omega Seamaster is Omega's oldest and most varied watch line in their catalog. Started in 1948 as to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Omega, it was based on the Omega Marine, the original dive watch made in 1932. Nowadays, the Seamaster is more known as Omega's diver line and is the direct competitor of the Rolex Submariner.

Back in the 1950-1970s, the Seamaster was a bit more varied, as shown by this dress watch. A simple, elegant three-handed automatic watch, The Omega Seamaster’s elegance cleverly disguises its durability despite being encased in a gold-toned case. On this particular reference, the patina on the champagne-like gold dial is very even throughout, a charming quality with vintage watches. To complement such a well-aged dial, the gold indices and the slim, baton-like hands give an "old world" kind of elegance that seems to be lost to time. With today's obsession with perfection and precision, watches like this Omega Seamaster cal. 471 gives a warm connection and a reminder that not everything has to be perfect for something to be very desirable.
