Omega Seamaster 'Spider Lug'

Why We Love It

Forgive us if we sound like a broken record here - but one of our favorite things about early Omega Seamasters is the semmingly infinite dial, hands, and case variaitions with them.

Take this Seamaster - produced around 1960, features one of the rarest Seamaster cases ever created. This case - known as 'Spider' or 'Dog Leg' lugs, was originally prototyped by Omega designer Jean-Pierre Matthey-Claudet for a special commemorative Seamaster in 1956. Eventually, this amazing case migrated to the regular Seamaster line-up, and made its way onto a select few steel Seamasters, such as this Reference 2984-1.

Importantly, this Seamaster houses Omega's Chronometer rated full-rotor automatic Calibre 505 - very uncommon in these early Seamasters. Its two-tone dial has aged beautifully with applied arrow head indices, paired with a luminous sword handset, and topped off with an octagonal Omega crown. 

For movement snobs and design aficionados alike, this Seamaster hits far above its weight class!

The Story

Since the Seamaster’s launch in 1948, it has been the vibrant, beating heart of Omega's collection. The key to its longevity, in part, lies in its adaptability. It comes in dive watch models, which were worn by professional divers (and James Bond), or dress models favored by the likes of Mad Men’s Don Draper.

In many ways, the Seamaster can be seen as Omega's counterpart to Rolex’s Datejust. They have many similarities: a waterproof case, in steel or gold, with slim proportions. However, what gives the Seamaster an edge over the Datejust is its affordability.

Whether steel and sporty or gold and glimmering, there’s truly a Seamaster for every taste, every budget, and every wrist.
