OMEGA Seamaster

Launched in 1948 and never left the watch scene. The Omega Seamaster is arguably the most iconic Omega watch ever produced. In 1956 something extraordinary happened. In the winter of 1956, Omega technicians put the Seamaster to an extreme test. They strapped it to Canadian pacific airways flight 302 which would land in Amsterdam and took the Polar Route. After almost 9 hours of extreme conditioning, the Seamaster was tested and all functions worked properly and it held time correctly. An amazing accomplishment for Omega once again.
