1954 Omega Seamaster Automatic (Ref. 2576-8) "Honeycomb Dial"
The Speedmaster might be the watch that made Omega a household name (and took it to the moon), but the Seamaster has been around quite a bit longer and has its own incredible legacy worth talking about.
First released in 1948 in celebration of Omega’s centennial anniversary, the Seamaster became a worldwide success and was the brand’s top seller for a long time. Today, it’s the longest-running name in the Omega catalog and still holds a special place in plenty of collectors’ hearts.
This piece oozes midcentury class and style, with its Breguet-style numerals, moody black "honeycomb" dial, and "crosshair" style running seconds subdial.

The excellent case appears to have been gently polished in the past and retains very thick and symmetrical lugs that show light signs of use. The case features an Omega-style replacement crown. The case back is clean with minor signs of wear. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
The original and beautifully-preserved black "honeycomb" applied-logo dial with Breguet numerals, dagger markers and "crosshair" style running seconds subdial is simply stunning, showing no major signs of age or wear. The radium lume plots remain intact and exhibit only minimal degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original Dauphine hands show light age and are in overall excellent condition, the radium lume has age to a dark patina and shows no degradation when inspected under U.V. light.
None. The watch is running and keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
