The Omega Seamaster (105.005) is one of Omega's most sought after chronographs. The reason is its 321-caliber movement. This caliber is one of Omega's most famous and historical movements due to their outstanding accuracy and durability. This very caliber was used in the Omega Speedmaster Professional or "Moonwatch" made famous by Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. Omega used the 321 for a mere 11 years because the cost of producing them was too high. They replaced it with the 861, which was still highly accurate but made partly out of plastic.
This Omega Seamaster is a true historical piece. Its 35 mm case sits beautifully on the wrist, which makes it perfect for everyday use. This is one of the few watches you can wear with a suit or a casual ensemble.
