OMEGA first created the Seamaster to commemorate the brand's 100th anniversary. As sports watches grew in popularity in the 1950s and 60s, it quickly became one of their most in-demand models among amateur and professional divers. In the 1990s the Seamaster’s popularity skyrocketed after it became the official watch of James Bond. To this day, the Seamaster is one of OMEGA's longest continuously manufactured and highly sought after models. Buying an OMEGA Seamaster watch is an excellent way to start or grow your collection. Here, we have a wide selection of exceptional used OMEGA Seamaster watches for sale, including variations like the Aqua Terra and the Planet Ocean.
To commemorate OMEGA’s 100th anniversary, the Seamaster was debuted in 1948. To help set the Seamaster apart from competing dive watches, OMEGA focused on developing its capabilities, namely water resistance. The result was the creation of two subcategories of the Seamaster: the sportier Seamaster Professional and dressier Seamaster Aqua terra.
Although there are many different iterations of the Seamaster, a few common features characterize the model. Most variations of the Seamaster showcase luminescent hands and hour markers for optimal visibility at night or underwater. The Seamaster watches typically feature a stainless-steel case construction with a sapphire crystal. Most models also come equipped with a helium release valve, which allows the watch to decompress during a dive.
The Seamaster gained widespread popularity in the 1990s when it became the official watch of 007 agent James Bond. The ties between the Seamaster and the James Bond series led OMEGA to release a limited edition watch in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the series: the Seamaster Planet Ocean. With nearly 70 years of continuous production, the Seamaster is one of the oldest and most robust dive watches around.
