OMEGA Seamaster 1000
166.093

Sold

In 1957, Omega unveiled the Seamaster 300, as part of the Professional trilogy, along with the Railmaster and the Speedmaster. In the first half of the 1960s, a new generation (reference ST 165.024, then added by ST 166.024) was born and a few examples were used by the French engineering and deep diving company COMEX (for “Compagnie Maritime d’Expertises”). As professional diving reached ever greater depths, Omega developed in the second half of the 1960s, not one but two ultra-waterproof watches: the Seamaster 600 “ploprof” and the Seamaster 1000.

Both watches are characterized by a thick one-piece case, a blue dial with date, an automatic movement (calibre 1002, then 1012) and a crown located on the left side. The Seamaster 1000 is a very rare beast and even rarer in its original unrestored condition.

The present Seamaster 1000, reference ST 166.093 and serial 37.804.xxx, was produced in December 1975 and delivered new in Switzerland. Its first owner was a Swiss amateur diver, who used it for 10 years in Lake Geneva and then let it sleep in a drawer until 2014, when the second (and current) owner bought it. All its parts are period correct and appear to be in original unrestored condition, with a lot of patina. As with most original Seamaster 1000 dials, bubbling phenomena on the blue color can be observed. It is offered with the Omega extract from the archives.

The Watch Score attributed is 8.1 plus an Extra Score for + 0.80 for its homogeneous patina, original condition and rubber extension.

Our WATCHFID Rating is 8.9.
