About this watch

With a face that tells of times since passed, this rare and handsome two tone watch hails from the golden age of the Omega Seamaster marque. A stunning vintage watch in such good condition. It retains the original two tone dial with raised diamond-cut steel baton hour markers.

The stainless steel case, measures 34mm in diameter, and houses one of the first rotor driven automatic movements developed by Omega – the 20 jewels 501 calibre – built over half a century ago and still performing well.

We have fully serviced and regulated the movement.

A little history:
The use of jewels in watchmaking serve to reduce friction between moving parts. The concept was first introduced and implemented around 1702 by Jacob Debaufre, a French man living and working in England. This advance in technology gave English watchmakers a competitive edge over their European counterparts.

In the same year that this watch was built:
Nikita Khrushchev, leader of the Soviet Union, called for the US to pull out of Berlin; Dr. No, the sixth novel in the James Bond series by Ian Fleming, was published in the UK; the original version of the movie The Fly, starring Vincent Price, was released in cinemas.
