About the Watch:

Now here’s something you won’t see everyday, even as a top-tier collector / dealer. Sourced directly from the veterans of the Argentinian Air Force, this Omega Seamaster is a stunner.

Considered that a civilian version of this model was never realized, and that most of these watches were sold to Hungarian and Polish Air Forces with only very few examples delivered to the Argentinian Army, this is one of the most difficult-to-come by variations in the entire Seamaster line of wristwatches whose collectability cannot be overstated, which deserves for me the nickname of “Warmaster”.

For its age and function, the watch is very-well preserved and running strong. The dial has been relumed in the days which attests of its honest travel through time without discrediting its merit and rarity nonetheless. It is delivered with our Nosville elegant taupe strap, leather pouch and authenticity card.

One similar version has been sold at the Philips Geneva Watch Auction Eight (10-11 November 2018) for an impressive total price of 20’000 CHF. (click on link here)
