Concept: Omega Seamaster 166.010 A timeless classic

Discover the timeless elegance of the Omega Seamaster 166.010, a perfect blend of elegance and functionality and a vintage Omega watch that is generally contributed by the legendary designer Gerald Genta. This exceptional timepiece belongs to the prestigious Omega Seamaster line, which has been synonymous with precision, durability, and style since its inception in 1948. The history makes the vintage Omega Seamaster 166.010 an ideal addition to any watch collection.

Omega Seamaster 166.010

The Omega Seamaster 166.010 features a versatile 35mm case, long lugs, and a wide-set bezel that create a balanced presence on the wrist. Its self-winding movement is also adjusted to a Chronometer rating. Note that most vintage Seamaster watches does not have a Chronometer grade movement. The high level movement ensures practicality for everyday wear, while the legible dial with a neatly framed date window caters to your timekeeping needs. Another rare to find is the pair with the comfortable "beads-of-rice" steel bracelet from Omega and gently domed crystal enhance the vintage appeal of this exceptional timepiece.

 

As a testament to Gerald Genta's design mastery, the Omega Seamaster 166.010 boasts subtle elegance and harmonious proportions. Its refined details, including the onyx inlaid indices and dauphine hands, reflect the sophisticated design language that Genta is known for.

Concept:

If a watch earns its nickname because of its distinct features, I am sure it is a special watch that worth all the watch collector's attention. Selected as one of the most common watches for servicemen back in the Vietnam war, the Seiko Diver is a perfect definition of a tool watch. It's as rugged and hard wearing as it is aesthetically satisfying. Even as the first "Turtles" was released 44 years ago in 1976, one thing is certain... they don't get old.

We have sold 6309 before, but here we are listing a Seiko 7548 Quartz Turtle for the first time. We have sourced a very special example giving the perfect sign of vintage feeling from the watch. This example is from October of 1978, the first year of the launch of the 7548 Diver. During its time of launch, it retailed at 40% higher than it's mechanical brother Seiko 6309 Turtle as Seiko thinks that Quartz is the next big thing in the 70s. The watch is even priced at the same level as an Omega Seamaster Automatic back in 70s. The dial of the Seiko 7548 Quartz Diver is printed with a Suwa Seikosha logo showing the origination of the watch. The case shape we see in the Seiko 7548 and 6309 Turtle is a timeless design essentially here with us today in the form of the automatic 7S26-powered SKX007/9 that can still be found today. 

The matte black dial is in great condition overall with perfectly developed patina throughout the hour plots. The hour and minute hands have retained their original lume and are observed to age with the same colour as the dial. The mineral crystal is scratch-free. The bezel has aged into a light grey colour (same as a vintage Submariners) and rotates smoothly in either direction. The day and date can be quickset via the crown. The case is in mint condition with the original finishes still visible. We have observed the price of Seiko 7548 rising significantly in recent years. And we expect the trend to continue in the upcoming years as this is becoming a timeless collectable class.

We suggest you pair this vintage piece with our Nato strap or our Premium Rubber straps which makes it a perfect all-occasion watch for your day. You will only find it getting rarer for a vintage diver with such an amazing condition, get it before it's gone.
