In the spring of 2018, Omega announced the release of two refined models of high-end watches for the 70th anniversary of the Seamaster collection. Both models were offered in steel version in limited series of 1948 copies. The design of these stylish timepieces is inspired by the first versions of the Seamaster models with a central and small seconds hand, which belong to the so-called golden age of watchmaking. This gave a reason to consider these luxury time devices as a collectible version of Seamaster. This fall, however, the anniversary series has replenished with two high-end watches available in platinum. And it looks like these models are applying for the status of a collectible.
Externally, the platinum version does not differ from the steel models presented at the Baselworld 2018 except for a number of nuances. Just like the 38-millimeter case, the wristwatch dials are fabricated of platinum and are equipped with gold hands. In the timepiece featuring the central second hand, the hands are made of the Sedna rose-gold alloy. The case comes with a brown strap manufactured of real alligator leather. The material of the high-end watch with a small second hand is yellow gold, while the case is fixed on a leather strap of hunter green shade.
Proper working of these stunning Omega timepieces is ensured by caliber 8807 (model with central seconds hand), and caliber 8805 (version with small seconds hand), equipped with an automatic movement. Both mechanisms have been certified by METAS Master Chronometer. Just like in the steel wristwatches, the back cover of the time device is laser-engraved with the image of the Chris-Craft boat and the Gloster Meteor aircraft. The latter became the first jet aircraft in service with the British Royal air force.
Both models are released in series of 70 copies – one for each year of the Seamaster collection. These high-end watches are available in leather-upholstered boxes, complete with interchangeable straps and a screwdriver. These great wristwatches are covered by a 5-year warranty, just like submitted in March steel models.
In our collection of used high-end watches, you will find something suitable for your tastes and needs at an affordable price.
