Omega Seamaster Automatic Chronometer Ref.168.1601

£1,195.00GBP

The Omega Seamaster Automatic reference 168.1601 we have for sale here wears so elegantly. Its white two-tone dial with wave pattern to the centre and skeleton hands complementing the smooth stainless steel curves of the watch’s case, only added to by the smooth bezel. Making for a very special timepiece from the master watchmakers Omega.   

With a screw down crown and waterproof case this makes it ideal for swimming/under water use. Easy to read date aperture at 3 O’clock. Perfectly sized 36mm case and stunning white two tone dial. The pristine white dial on this Omega Seamaster Automatic Chronometer contrasts well with the skeleton hands and the Omega logo to form a minimal yet beautiful dial configuration. The subtle minute tracker that runs around the perimeter of this watch dial is a nod to Omega’s attention to detail in spite of a more minimal watch design.   

The central part of the dial forms a ring on the edge of the silver hour batons along with the hands and seconds hand. This is textured with a detailed wave pattern, usually a hallmark of the more common blue “James Bond” style Seamaster. It is much scarcer and in our opinion nicer variant of that blue dial that will stand out from others, Unfortunately it is difficult to capture the wave pattern in our images, but it is a truly beautiful site. Below the classic Seamaster signature in the bottom half of the dial is also the Chronometer signature, again demonstrating the renowned accuracy of these COSC rated watches.   

The case is in superb condition and bears virtually no signs of wear at all, though the occasional light rub or scratch mark can be seen around case edges when inspected up close. Any signs of wear on this watch are not only very minor but also purely cosmetic; the movement runs excellently and keeps time to COSC specification. A truly exceptional piece!
