1956 Omega Semaster Olympic "Pre-Commercial"

Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Delivery: ca.10 days

A beautiful and highly collectible timepiece made by Omega especially for XVI Olympics which took place in Melbourne in 1956. This particular watch belongs to a so-called "pre-commercial" series which was made by Omega in limited quantity (collectors say around 100 pcs) and then was followed by simplified "commercial" version. The pre-commercial Seamaster Olympic features a special solid gold case with caseback bearing Cross of Merit and a very special Chinese lacquer dial with the same Cross of Merit and Olympic rings in red color. Due to complexity and fragility of these dials, only a few survived in a completely untouched condition. This particular watch is one of them.
