Why We Love it

Why We Love It

Far too many chronographs, and indeed watches in general produced by Omega, remain tragically unloved because the dial does not bear the Speedmaster name.

Foolishness, we say! 

The 38mm stainless steel cushion case just oozes 70's cool, with its silver sunburst dial contrasted by 3 subtly different shades of blue across the dial and tachymeter. Small funky details like the 'airplane' chronograph minute hand add to that classic sporty aesthetic. 

Unlike many Omega Chronographs, this one is automatic, powered by the calibre 1040. The Calibre 1040, patented in 1970, came on the heels of the three-way tie for the first automatic chronograph movement--the Calibre 11, the Zenith El-Primero and the Seiko 6139. While relatively rare, these unusual chronographs from Omega in honest condition don't come up often.

Whether this is your first Omega, or you've collection stretches to the moon and back, Seamaster Chronographs remain heavy on cool factor and light on price point.

The bold but wearable case size, soft but dynamic color scheme, and general off the beaten path coolness make this the perfect all around weekend wearer. 

The Story

The Seamaster debuted in 1948, and has its roots in watches Omega supplied to the RAF during the Second World War. These robust and waterproof watches proved so popular—and so effective—that Omega was inspired to release a line intended for civilian use. By the 1950s the line had expanded to encompassed both purpose-driven dive watches (such as the Omega Seamaster 300) and chronographs.

Aficionados of vintage Omega chronographs already know the Omega Speedmaster. The history, the lore, the fact that it went to the moon. Its reputation is such that Omega's chronograph offerings in its other lines are often overlooked--undeservedly, because while these other chronographs might not have the reputation of the Speedmaster, they are just as thoughtfully-crafted and deserving of attention as their more famous cousin.

Like the Speedmaster, the Seamaster chronographs utilized Albert Piguet’s famous Calibre .321 movement, widely regarded as one of the finest manually-wound chronograph movements in the world.
