Omega Seamaster Ref. 14701-2

Omega Seamaster Ref. 14701-2

During World War II, Omega shifted their efforts towards producing simple and reliable timepieces at large scale for various militaries. After the war, Omega resumed their production of consumer pieces with a new approach- the new post-war Omegas were notable for their clean, legible dials and stalwart movements, making them a popular choice for a sharp-looking everyday watch.

Of particular note in the post-war years was the introduction of the iconic Seamaster line in 1948, so named for its then-innovative waterproofing. Over time, the Seamaster name was applied to a variety of pieces with waterproof cases, from simple, time-only pieces to full-fledged dive watches.

While vintage Omegas, and Seamasters in particular, have gained in popularity thanks to their affordable prices and classic looks, it has also made finding worthwhile examples a bit more difficult. 

This example, a  Reference 14701-2 is a testament to what makes these Seamasters a popular pick for the new and experienced collector alike. Introduced in 1961, the Reference 14701 features a handsome 34mm case in stainless steel, well-proportioned on the wrist, with long angled lugs. The dial is clean and uncluttered, and has taken on a beautiful, even patina over the years.

Vintage Omega is hot right now and it's easy to see why: even after 50 years, the Seamaster's timeless design and elegant proportions make for a handsome and understated timepiece for any occasion.
