Stunning 'New Old Stock', Omega Seamaster Automatic, in a Steel 'T.V.' Shaped Case, Dual Model Inscribed Inside the Case Back, 166.0216 - 366.0848. Beautiful Navy Blue Sunburst Dial. On an Integral Brushed Steel Omega 1286/249 Bracelet.

The Seamaster is the longest running product line still produced by Omega. It was introduced in 1948 to celebrate Omegas 100th anniversary and was loosely based upon designs made for the British Royal Navy towards the end of World War II. The original Seamaster's key feature was an O-ring gasket used to provide its waterproof seal. Today it remains the oldest model in Omega’s current collection. 

What’s On Offer 

This is a 'new old stock' meaning it was manufactured in the 70s, however, it has remained unworn since then and is in 'like brand new condition' just as it was when it left Omega, but possibly having acquired an odd storage mark as it no longer has its original box. This particular Seamaster is a most handsome chap with its rich navy sunburst dial and opulent silver dial furniture. The elegant stick hands have subtle luminous inserts in keeping with the hour plots and the framed day/date window balances a simple yet stylish dial design. The tonneau case is in mint condition and the meaty Omega signed crown adds to the dimensions - this watch definitely wears larger on the wrist. Teamed with its original Omega bracelet, this watch is understated and sophisticated, the perfect all rounder, carrying the wearer seamlessly from day to evening wear. Competitively priced, particularly considering its condition, this Seamaster would make a wonderful gift.
