The Watch

Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. 

During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army. After stringent tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice of timepiece. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.

This rare circa. 1952 Omega Bumper 2577-12 has a 34.5mm stainless steel case, thick scalloped lugs with beveled edges. A lug to lug length of 42mm and a thickness of 10mm for that comfortable fit on the wrist. Polished surfaces throughout with a stepped polished bezel. Domed crystal protects the star of the show, a black Guilloché or waffle dial, applied polished gilt arrowhead indexes with chamfered edges that play with the light as you rotate your wrist. Elegant steel Dauphine hands complete with a center sweeping seconds hand. Text is kept to a minimum with Omega Automatic at 12 o’clock and Seamaster at 6 o’clock. On the back, we have a screw-down case back with SEAMASTER engraved into it. Inside a Bumper Automatic Omega Cal. 354, 17 jewels, 19800 beats per hour. This movement was in production from 1952 until 1955. The watch comes with an Omega box and comes fitted on an 18mm leather strap with an original Omega buckle.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold with an Omega box. The watch comes paired on an 18mm leather strap with an Original Omega buckle. The watch is from Circa. 1952 in unpolished worn vintage condition. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


A watch I know I will seriously regret selling and one I've been keeping a hold onto for a while, but the truth is I am a terrible watch dealer if I just keep all the good ones! So here it is, an unpolished and beautiful example of a super early Seamaster with a waffle dial, in black too! You'll be hard-pressed to find a better one and especially at this incredibly fair price!
