70 years. That is how long Omega’s Seamaster has been around. Originally released in 1948, it was inspired by waterproof military watches that had been worn by G.I.’s during WW2. Now, thanks to Omega, that original design is making a brief return. Introducing Omega’s Seamaster 1948 Limited Edition.

The watch will come in two different models – one with a subdial at 6 o’clock for tracking seconds, and another central seconds model. The two will feature a brown and blue leather strap respectively. The back of both watches will boast a clear commemorative caseback (featuring a Chris-Craft boat and Gloster Meteor plane, the latter being the first jet ever used by the R.A.F.) for displaying the Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement that sits inside the 38mm case. Both models, the sub-dial and the center-second, are limited to just 1,948 pieces.
