Posted by wristwatch on October 7, 2007
Set sail with confidence and style to points unknown with this classic Omega Seamaster stainless steel men’s automatic chronometer watch, a highly accurate timepiece that’s as comfortable negotiating deals in the boardroom as it is navigating the breaking seas. It’s also a great diving watch, with water resistance to 300 meters (1000 feet). Definitively masculine in design, it features a large, round silver stainless steel watch case that blends brushed and polished surfaces and measures 41mm (1.61 inches) wide and 11.5mm (0.45 inches) deep. This watch includes a secondary hand (in red) that enables you to track a second time zone using the aluminum bidirectional rotating bezel’s engraved 24-hour marks (in large Arabic numerals).
The black dial background is accented by a Geneva wave pattern and it includes large, luminous Dauphine hands (with seconds hand) and baton dial markers, as well as a window at 3 o’clock for the automatic date display. Other features include a screw-in caseback, screw-locked crown, and scratch-resistant and glare-proofed domed sapphire crystal. It’s completed by a silver stainless steel link bracelet band that offers polished highlights, which is joined by a secure, push-button clasp.
Originally created in the 1750s, the first chronometers were clocks that were accurate enough to calculate the longitude of a ship’s position. Today, the chronometer label is bestowed upon timepieces that have undergone precision tests and received a certificate from the official COSC (Control Officile Suisse de Chronometers) regulatory organization that rigorously tests and certifies (or fails) watch movements for chronometer status.
