To celebrate the 2012 Olympics held in London Omega produced a limited edition Seamaster. This classic was based on the original Seamaster that was introduced in 1948 and this edition was limited to just 1948 pieces, reflecting the 1948 introduction year.
Whilst the concept of being a robust watch for the active man (person!) remains the same, it is very much a watch of the 21st century. This particular watch is numbered 1240 and is in excellent, almost mint condition. It comes complete with its original Omega box and cardboard outer, instructions and cards (4). Below is a list of its credentials.
