Made famous for its reliability, the OMEGA Seamaster has worldwide acclaim stemming back to its origins where it serviced armed forces in Britain.
Naturally, the military were looking for wristwatches that were robust and could handle exacting conditions, all while being discreet and easy to read. Its success with servicemen prompted the company to produce a line for the general public in 1947.
OMEGA has not only become horological masters of Space exploration but also the journey to the depths of the ocean, creating the world’s first ever divers wristwatch in 1930. Consequently, the company has gone on to provide lifesaving timekeeping through their exclusive Seamaster divers range to ocean explorers, divers and those who wished to test man’s endurance against the deep sea’s crushing pressures and unimaginable mysteries.
