Omega's now-iconic Seamaster began as a simple time-only dress watch with a modest (for modern standards) water resistance rating.

It was not until the 1950s when Omega, alongside its contemporaries Rolex and Blancpain, decided to release a dedicated diver's tool watch complete with a rotating bezel for timing underwater movements. In 1957, Omega released a trio of 'Professional' watches - the Speedmaster, Seamaster, and Railmaster. All three would be continuously developed into distinct lines, with many variations in dial, case and movement designs.

In 1995, the Omega Seamaster took over from the Rolex Submariner as the official watch of James Bond. Since then, every James Bond movie has featured an Omega on the spy's wrist.

The watch is in excellent condition for its age. The case has some general wear, but the lugs still appear sharp. The acrylic glass and bezel both have some scratches, including a slightly deeper one on the bezel at 9 o'clock. Case back actually stamped 165.024.

OMEGA

Omega is in the unique position of being perhaps the most versatile out of all the watchmakers currently still in operation. Its product lineup includes dive watches, automatic and manual chronographs, as well haute joaillerie works of art. The brand has even demonstrated its high-end watchmaking capabilities by creating complications such as the tourbillon.

Omega's story goes further than just its watches, however. The brand has had a long and rich history of being called upon in times of need, and has sold watches to everyone from the British Royal Flying Corps during the First World War to NASA during the Space Race. More recently, Omega has been known as the exclusive supplier of watches to James Bond.
