About this watch

A supremely elegant watch in wonderful condition for its age.

Original features include: gold dial with tapering gold hour indices, gold dauphine hands, gold-capped 34mm signed case (note that this isn’t gold-plated but has a much more substantial gold capping), Seamaster hippocampus logo on case back, and signed crown.

Inside is a caliber 552 automatic movement, a fantastic movement dating from the pinnacle of Swiss watchmaking: 24 jewels pump out 19,800 bph (5.5 beats per second) with Incabloc shock protection and sweep seconds. This superb movement has been fully serviced and regulated, and the watch runs very well, holds good charge and keeps very good time.

A little history: Omega introduced the Seamaster in 1948, developing this high performance, go-anywhere watch from those it supplied to the RAF at the end of WW2.

1960 was the year that the first CERN particle accelerator became operational in Geneva, John F. Kennedy was elected President of the United States, a US nuclear-powered submarine completed the first underwater circumnavigation of Earth (codenamed Operation Sandblast), and Edith Piaf’s Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien was released in France.
