Here is a stunning, all original Omega Seamaster from 1954. The silver sunburst dial with a golden Omega logo has taken on a fantastic golden patina through a scatter of tiny corrosion spots and is a vintage lover’s dream. It has beautiful golden art deco numerals at the poles and golden “spaceship” wedge hour markers with lume dots at the outer ends in between. At the inner ends of the hour markers is a black printed minute track. The golden dauphine hands have the original lume intact and are in good condition with some wear. All lume has degraded and is no longer really active.


The stainless steel case with the original crown and batman lugs is in fine condition, with a polished face and brushed sides. The case shows some overall wear both on the face and the sides, perhaps most prominently at the face at around 2 o’clock and at the outside of the lugs. The stainless steel case back is in good condition with a set of scratches and small dents. The case does not appear to ever have been polished.


The original bead of rice bracelet is in fine condition with some wear, mostly on the double fold clasp, and some stretching. It is large enough for moderately big wrists. Make sure the specific bracelet size listed in the details is not too small for your wrist, as finding spare links for old bracelets is very difficult. The bracelet can be shortened by up to about 2cm by moving a spring bar in the clasp.


Inside the watch, Omega’s wonderful 354 bumper automatic movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +15 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in January 2024 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


If someone were to describe what they associate with a “vintage watch”, this might be it. Not only do the dial and case make for a fabulous look, any vintage collector should have a bumper automatic! The feeling on the wrist when the oscillating weight hits the buffer springs inside the watch is just something else.


Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.


NB! Note that we are based in Switzerland and that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
