Omega Seamaster Automatic - c.1958 - Model Reference: 2846-2848-15SC
A Vintage, Omega Seamaster Automatic c.1958 Model Ref: 2846-2848-15SC - with Caliber 501 Movement
A simply beautiful steel case Omega Automatic, exuding charm and sophistication; this 1950s dress watch which has been lovingly preserved and cared for with desirable 'fat lugs' gives the watch a modern aesthetic that has remained tremendously popular. So much so, that there are re-issues of this style and design in the Omega catalogues of recent years!
Featuring an ivory-coloured 'Explorer' style dial with a very subtle 'pie pan' effect to the dial edge. The mirror polished and applied hour markers and dauphine hands really shine and stand out against their background.
The lugs, together with the chunky case back, make the watch stand slightly proud when put on the wrist, which enhances the overall look and size. The movement is the automatic, self-winding, Caliber 501, which is consistently reliable, efficient and became a staple of watchmaking for decades due to its accuracy and performance.
What's on offer
Based on the watch's case back, which boasts the famous Hippocampus symbol (referred to by Omega as the Seahorse) which was used as a means to signify the watch's water-resistant capabilities, and the movement serial number, we are dating this watch at c.1958 as this is the year the emblem was introduced. The age of this beautiful watch is hard to believe given the impressive condition, a real gem, and finished off with one of our favorite Seamaster dial signatures using the 'Coathanger S'.
