WHY WE LOVE IT-Since the Seamaster’s launch in 1948, it has been the vibrant, beating heart of Omega’s collection. The key to its longevity, in part, lies in its adaptability: It comes in dive watch models, which were worn by professional divers (and James Bond), or dress models favored by the likes of Mad Men’s Don Draper. Omega released the first Seamaster in 1948 to coincide with the Summer Olympics held in London. In a city ravaged by the Blitz, the Olympics represented a time to look forward while still being respectful of the past. For Omega, whose 100th Anniversary took place that year, the manufacture’s role as Official Timekeeper represented the ideal opportunity to launch a new collection. Advertising material of the time touted the extreme ruggedness of the Seamaster, which would prove all the more important with the 1957 launch of the Seamaster 300 diver’s model. Today, the Omega Seamaster is a collection of timepieces as varied as the people who wear them, and includes dress and sport models in a variety of case sizes and materials with any number of dial layouts and designs. It is without question an important historical model and a delight to wear in any of its variations. This particular Seamaster is a Planet Ocean 600 made in celebration of the 36th America’s Cup. Housed in a 43. 5mm stainless steel case, it features a blue ceramic bezel ring with a white and red ceramic scale, a white ceramic dial, a date window at 3 o’clock, and oversized sword hands in matching America’s Cup-themed coloring. Its case back is adorned with the America’s Cup logo on the sapphire glass, graced with the words “Auckland 2021.” Paired to a blue, structured rubber strap with red lining and white stitching, the watch is in as-new condition and is powered by Omega’s Master Chronometer Calibre 8900 automatic movement. Further, it ships with its inner and outer boxes, books, pictograms, leather card holder, and papers confirming its limited edition status from 2021
