History of the omega Seamaster

The Omega Seamaster is a line of watches that Omega has produced since 1948. That year was the birth year of the Seamaster CK 2518. The model, when released, was to be a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the company. It was loosely based upon designs made for the British Royal Navy towards the end of World War II. The first omega Seamaster reference CK2915 was actually a dress watch that happened to be moisture proof. The original Seamaster's key feature was an O-ring gasket used to provide its waterproof seal. This design had been developed for use in submarines during the war, and turned out to also be useful for watches, where it made them much less vulnerable to temperature and pressure changes than earlier (lead or shellac) based gasket designs. The OMEGA Seamaster has long been the watch of choice for underwater explorers and undercover spies.
