Steel Omega Seamaster Cal. 501 Ref. 2984 1 vintage wristwatch, circa 1958

A rare stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with angular spider lugs

This rare Seamaster model has highly unusual, angular, “spider” lugs. Dramatically different in appearance from other Seamaster models of the period, the Ref.2984 was first introduced by Omega in 1958. Great attention to detail has been paid to the design of the watch, which carries its angular appearance through from the lugs, to the specially designed and original faceted crown and the Alpha shaped hands. Lightly patinated and with a creamy silvered finish, the dial is in lovely condition with only very light oxidation. The bezel has a flat polished finish and the snap-on case back is centered with the embossed Seamaster logo. Automatically wound, the watch is powered by an Omega calibre 501 with 20 jewels and precision regulation. It comes with an alligator grain handcrafted band. Also come with a vintage Omega box.

History

The story of Omega started in 1848 with Louis Brandt when he opened a “Comptoir d’etablissement” a sales office for sub-contracted watch manufacture. In 1880, the brothers Louis Paul and Cesar Brandt set-up a modern watch production unit. In 1889, the company had a production of 100,000 units per year. The name of Omega only appeared in 1903. Omega has developed amazing movements such as the “Labrador” in 1885. In 1917, Omega provided watches to the British army and in 1918 to the American army. In 1957, the speedmaster professional was born and then selected by the NASA in 1965 as the official timekeeper. Today, Omega continues to demonstrate mechanical innovation and remain one of the most prominent brands in the world of watchmakers.
