1961 Omega Seamaster Automatic (Ref. 14762 SC 61)
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 ref. 166.010 Seamaster is a fantastic example of how well-rounded the Seamaster is, something that helps make it perfect as an everyday timepiece. It’s powered by the respected cal. 564 chronometer movement, which is fitted into an elegant design that is subtle, timeless, and well-balanced. With its 35mm case and long, broad lugs, the ref. 166.010 is both relevant and a suitable option in any environment, especially thanks to its classic dial layout that is both stylish and recognizable.
