A very early Omega Seamaster, in a stainless steel case housing a fully serviced bumper automatic movement. Model reference CK2576-6
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in circa 1948/1949. But Omega’s own website list this model as available from 1949 – see here.
The watch is currently photographed and the video shot BEFORE the service has been carried out. Once the watch is back from service the photos will be redone. We have asked for the crown to be replaced and the movement cleaned and serviced.
Omega launched the Seamaster in 1948, so this watch is very early in the production. The cases were available in gold, gold capped and Stainless Steel like this one. The dial is original, and does show some patina. The hands are also original, and the Radium lume is dirty but on one piece. The case is straight and without major damage, and it also appears to be unpolished – the original bevels on the lugs are clearly visible. The case back washer is correct and in place – these were critical and the later models used to remind the watch maker to replace the washer. The case back shows the Seamaster word on the back clearly, and inside are all the correct markings including the model number CK2576. The strap is new, and can be swapped for a different colour if needed.
We normally don’t list watches until they are 100% ready for sale, but if anyone is looking for a 1949 Omega Seamaster they have the chance of reserving this watch now.
This watch will be supplied with a presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
