About this watch

This beautiful watch in solid 18ct gold radiates understated mid-century sophistication. Original features include a white dial, gold hands and baton markers, a 562-caliber automatic movement (19,800 bph – 5.5 beats per second – 24 jewels, Incabloc shock protection, sweep seconds) which has been fully serviced and regulated, and signed 35mm solid 18ct gold case and crown. We have paired it with a new brown strap.

A little history: the Seamaster, launched in 1948, was based on the high-performance pilot’s watch that Omega had supplied to the RAF in 1945. This particular timepiece dates from the peak of the Seamaster marque.

What else was happening in 1962? The Beatles played their first session at Abbey Road Studios and released Love Me Do. The Rolling Stones made their debut at the Marquee Club. Crick and Watson won a Nobel Prize for their discovery of nucleic acids. The Ford Cortina was launched. Chris Bonnington became one of the first Britons to climb the north face of the Eiger. The European Space Agency was formed, and an agreement was signed between Britain and France to develop the supersonic airliner, Concorde. Lawrence of Arabia was released and a certain Sean Connery made his debut as James Bond in Dr. No, launching the ‘secret agent’ film genre that went on to flourish through the 1960s.
