The present wristwatch is a very nice specimen of the Omega Seamaster family: it was released in 1948 and was most notably waterproof, enabling sailors and marine workers to use the watch in their line of work. This very lot is a reference BA145.006-68, one of many updates and variations of the Seamaster, all cased in 18k yellow gold making it more precious without losing its sportiness. The tonneau-shaped water-resistant-type case with screw back, Seamaster logo, screw down crown, two round chronograph buttons in the band is very well preserved and inside bears the caliber 321 copper-finished mechanical movement. The gilt brushed dial has applied black numerals and hands, outer tachymeter scale, three subsidiary sunken engine-turned dials for constant seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours registers. The watch also comes with its original box and warranty confirming its sale on 13 December 1970.
