Omega Seamaster 1948 Small Second Limited Edition (5188.8.131.52.02.01) (Deposit)
Launched in 1948, the Seamaster line was OMEGA's first family of watches. A blend of battle-proven technology and beautiful design, they would go on to conquer the watchmaking world. Released to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Seamaster, these 1948 Limited Editions pay tribute to OMEGA's original post-war classics.
Between 1940 and 1945, OMEGA delivered more than 110,000 timepieces to the British Ministry of Defence (MoD), all highly valued by British airmen and sailors for their water-resistance and reliability in combat. A demand for a peacetime application of this robust technology led to the creation of the Seamaster.
