King Saud bin Abdul Aziz is the son of Abdulaziz ibn Abdul Rahman ibn Faisal ibn Turki ibn Abdullah ibn Muhammad Al Saud, who is the founder of Saudi Arabia. From 1902 he conquered and ruled a large part of central and North Arabia and he was in charge of the discovery of oil in Saudi Arabia. His son, King Ibn Saud, succeeded him and acceded to the throne in 1953.   Middle-Eastern royalties often gifted watches to government officials and important relations as a symbol of friendship and appreciation. King Saud gifted watches bearing a special dial, namely, with his face printed on it. Most logo- and crest dials display the figure above the 6-hour position as the watch brand's logo is displayed below the 12-hour position. However, King Saud (and also his father) did not want this and requested Omega to have his portrait shown below the 12-hour position, so above the Omega logo and regular text.  This Omega Seamaster dates back to 1953. The Seamaster is one of the most-beloved production lines and features many different models ranging from very sportive tool watches to classic dress watches. The one we can offer you has a 34 mm-measuring case that is 18k rose-gold capped. It runs on the calibre 501 and displays only the time. The watch has some cool other details: Arabic quarters, arrow markers and alpha hands. It comes on a leather strap of choice.

Introduction

Omega SeamasterLaunched in 1948, at the 100th year anniversary of the brand, the Omega Seamaster is the oldest line in the brand's current collection. It was intended as durable yet elegant for active individuals who wanted a versatile wristwatch. It was based on the waterproof wristwatches made for the British military at the end of World War II. Besides the more sturdy professional models, the Seamaster-line also covers some elegant dresswatches. In over half a century, Omega created a broad spectrum of Seamaster watches that all have precision and high-quality finish in common.
