Launched 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 a durable yet elegant watch 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.
