The Watch

Here we have a 2000s Omega Seamaster GMT 50th Anniversary 2534.50.00 with a 41mm brushed and polished stainless steel case curving over your wrist with the characteristic twisted lugs, launched in 1998 the watch celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the introduction of the Seamaster in 1948. A lug-to-lug length of 47mm and a case thickness of 12.5mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence, and on the right side is a signed screw-down crown protected by crown guards built from the case adding extra rigidity, and deep knurling gives you extra grip. The bidirectional stainless steel bezel has attractive scalloped sides for grip and a black and silver aluminium insert with a bold 24-hour scale and customary inverted triangle at 12 o‚Äôclock holding a domed sapphire crystal above the striking black laser engraved wave dial, an outer minute track has large indexes coated in SuperLumiNova marking the hours, at 3 o‚Äôclock a framed date window. Broad sword hands are infilled with SuperLumiNova complemented by a red-tipped sweeping second hand and a red arrow point GMT hand, at 12 o‚Äôclock we have the Omega motif and at 6 o‚Äôclock ‚ÄúSeamaster, red GMT and Chronometer‚ÄĚ completing this versatile Anniversary vintage-inspired dive and travellers companion.¬† On the reverse a screw-down case back with engraved waves, ‚Äú50 YEARS‚ÄĚ and a polished Hippocampus in the centre, a seahorse that represents Neptune the God of the sea, it was conceived by Pierre Borie after seeing a picture of Neptune riding a chariot pulled by seahorses, it is the reason why the seahorses are wearing a bridle, first seen on the Seamaster in 1958. Inside an automatic Omega Cal. 1128,¬†23 jewels beating at 28,800 beats per hour, this Chronometer Certified GMT movement has a base of the ETA 2892-A2, it is a ‚Äútrue‚ÄĚ GMT that allows you to adjust the hour hand independently in one-hour increments when the crown is pulled out one click and rotated in either direction without hacking the seconds or moving the minute hand, you can adjust the GMT hand with the crown pulled out two clicks.¬†The watch comes fitted on its 20mm Omega stainless steel brushed and polished bracelet with a signed deployment clasp and the watch comes with its Omega presentation box but no paperwork.


Personal Note

This is one of my favourite "modern" Seamaster references, the lack of a helium escape valve is a big plus for me, as the contrasts of the bezel and the highlights of red on the dial, plus the fact it's a GMT and this price point... I really don't see how you can go wrong with a watch like this! I'd highly recommend snapping this one up whilst you can as you'll regret passing on it.


The Brand

Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. in 1848 founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When he died in 1879, his sons carried on his dream. In 1880 they moved to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli where they remain today. The brothers produced their first mass-produced calibre, the Labrador In 1885. Just a few years later in 1892, they produced the first minute-repeater. 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. In 1930, Omega and Tissot merged together to form Soci√©t√© Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlog√®re (SSIH) In 1931, another group was formed - Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG). Where SSIH was primarily French-speaking, ASUAG was founded by the more German-speaking members of the Swiss watch industry. In 1948 they introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster. Omega first introduced the Constellation in 1952. At the time it was Omega's flagship timepiece. The first models had a Cal. 354 bumper movement in them. Later in 1955, Omega introduced the Automatic Cal. 50x, followed in 1959 by the Cal.55x (no date) and 56x (date) versions. Many of the Constellations came with pie-pan dials, diamond indexes, and fancy lug configurations. All the gold Constellations of that time have the Observatory of Geneva's hand engraved on the back. The stainless steel and stainless steel/gold versions had a gold medallion on the back with the Observatory of Geneva. The eight stars above the Observatory stand for the many exploits of Omega in the world Chronometer competition. Celebrating the fact that all Constellations are Chronometer Certified. In 1962, when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first Omega watch to enter space. After rigorous 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. In 1969, President Nixon famously said it was ‚Äútoo valuable‚ÄĚ and turned down the first-ever all-gold Speedmaster Professional Deluxe. As a response to the ever-growing threat of electronic watches to the manufacturers of mechanical watches, Omega and many Swiss brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe formed Centre Electronique Horologer (CEH). Prototypes began to appear in 1967 with their production starting in 1968. Then In 1972, Omega introduced the reference, 198.030, which included the Omega calibre 1250, a ‚Äėtuning-fork electronic movement which was made under licence from Bulova. Later we saw a merger of SSIH and ASUAG into SMH, or Soci√©t√© de Micro√©lectronique et d‚ÄôHorlogerie. This merger took place in 1983. In 1992, the company acquired Blancpain, and in 1998 it officially rebranded itself from SMH to the Swatch Group. Then, in 1999, they purchased and integrated Breguet into the Swatch Group.
