Omega is releasing four Seamaster limited edition timepieces as part of the design’s 70th anniversary.
The release has been announced in tribute to the brand’s work in WWII when it delivered more than 110,000 timepieces to the British military.
Two stainless steel models which were first seen at this year’s Baselworld along with two luxury platinum editions will be released as part of the new offering.
All four watches are driven by METAS-certified master chronometer movements which are resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.
Both stainless steel models feature a polished bezel and opaline silvery domed dial and each timepiece is presented in a special soft brown leather collector’s box, with spare NATO strap in the original Admiralty grey colour, spare leather strap and strap changing tool.
The polished crown and polished-brushed stainless steel buckles are embossed with an Omega symbol.
On the Central Second model, driven by the Master Chronometer 8806, the hour hand, domed minute and domed seconds hand are all in diamond polished 18K white gold while the strap is blue-grey leather.
Additionally, the Small Seconds steel model features a sub-dial at 6 o’clock and a leaf style hour and domed minute hand which are diamond polished 18K white gold.
It is presented on a brown leather strap and powered by the Master Chronometer 8804.
The stainless steel models are limited to 1948 pieces each.
The two platinum models are powered by the Master Chronometer movements which include an 18K Sedna gold rotor and balance bridge.
Both watches feature a 950 platinum case, a polished bezel, opaline 950 platinum domed dial and polished crown embossed with a vintage symbol like all models in the release.
Each platinum edition is presented in a special soft brown leather collector’s box, with additional leather straps and strap changing tool.
The platinum editions are limited to just 70 pieces each and all four Seamaster 1948 watches and backed by OMEGA’s 5-year warranty.
