Omega Seamaster Chronograph

Why We Love It

Aficionados of vintage chronographs know about the Speedmaster—its lore, its history, the fact that it went to the moon. But this watch, a CK2947/2 (Reference 315.164), has enough going for it to get us excited, even if it doesn’t have Speedmaster on the dial. Speaking of the dial, we love its crispness, the perfect counterpoint to the Speedy’s black starkness.

Add to it a creamy patina, not to mention a Calibre .321 column wheel movement, and you have a winner.

The Story

The Seamaster debuted in 1948, and has its roots in watches Omega supplied to the RAF during the Second World War. These robust and waterproof watches proved so popular—and so effective—that Omega was inspired to release a line intended for civilian use. By the 1950s the line had expanded to encompassed both purpose-driven dive watches (such as the Omega Seamaster 300) and chronographs.

Like the Speedmaster, the Seamaster chronographs utilized Albert Piguet’s famous Calibre .321 movement, widely regarded as one of the finest manually-wound chronograph movements in the world.
