Omega Seamaster Automatic Chronometer price
Today we bring you three vintage Omegas at three diferent price points. It's always important to remember that with vintage watches, whether you have $1, 000 to spend or $100, 000 to spend, there is something awesome out there if you're willing to look. On the high end of the spectrum is a very uncommon 18k white gold Omega Constellation on a white gold Omega bracelet. In the middle is an original Seamaster reference 2913-4. And at the more affordable level, we found an all-original steel Seamaster on its original beads-of-rice bracelet on eBay. Today there's an Omega for everyone.
White Gold Omega Constellation With White Gold Bracelet
The early Omega Constellations are watches that offer excellent value for the money. They are automatic watches with chronometer grade movements. What really sets them apart are the distinctive pie pan dials and swooping case designs. Constellations are often found in steel or gold-capped cases. They are also sometimes found in yellow gold and rose gold cases, but this is the first I have come across in 18k white gold. It also comes on a fascinating 18k white gold bracelet, which somehow really suits the watch.
Omega Seamaster Reference 2913-4
While the early Speedmasters and the early Railmasters from the 1950s get most of the vintage Omega attention, there is a strong community of collectors that go after the early Seamaster divers from the 1950s, too. The Seamaster reference 2913 is a design classic in its own right. It features broad arrow hands, a lollipop seconds hand, and a very interesting bezel design. It is certainly a unique looking reference.
A reference 2913-4 is currently available at vintagewatches.it and it dates to circa 1959. The case looks to have been a little polished (the hippocampus on the back is a little hard to see, which is common on polished Omega watches), but that is not uncommon with Omega tool watches from that era, which were typically purchased to be worn and not babied. The price is 9, 500 Euro and you can see it here.

Finally, we have something a little less rarified. It happens to be an automatic Seamaster in original, honest condition. Vintage Omega Seamasters (the non-divers) are some of the best sub-$1, 000 vintage watches you can buy. They are a great entry point into the world of vintage watches. Well this one looks like it could benefit from a new crystal (or at least a polish of the current one), and the entire watch looks to be original including the funky ridged crown. It has a silver starburst dial and the radium lume in the hands and on the hour markers looks like it has turned nearly black, which is an interesting effect.
Currently on eBay at under $500, this watch has an original Omega beads-of-rice bracelet and comes with what appears to be the original well-worn box. It looks like it was only ever lightly worn and comes in great shape. You can see the listing here.
