Omega Marine - First ever divers watch

1932

Watch designer was Louis Alex, made by Frederic Baumgartner.

What made the Marine so unique and so capable was this two-part case, which had its top and bottom pieces connected to the straps, while a large clasp locked them securely on the case back. Furthermore, the Marine was the first watch to have a synthetic sapphire front, clearly an important step forwards in terms of reliability compared to any other material used at the time. The "package" was completed by a seal leather strap which, by Omega's claims, were extremely resistant to salt water. The concept was ready so it was time to put it to its paces: Omega, likely "inspired" by Rolex's marketing successes, set out to prove the special capabilities of their watch by testing through a series of challenges, challenges which were of previously unimaginable difficulty. In 1936 a couple of Marine watches spent minutes in hot water (of 85 degree Celsius) and were then quickly submerged to a depth of 70 meters in the 5 degree Celsius cold waters of Lake Geneva for thirty minutes. When they were taken out, all pieces (two complete watches and a case with no movement inside) were functioning perfectly, showing no traces of water inside.

    Guter Service, prompte und sichere Lieferung. Leider war die Farbe des Stiftes am PC nicht genau erkennbar, ein Hinweis im Text wäre gut gewesen. Ansonsten aber alles prima!

  • Promptly shipped but grossly overpacked, with a huge box and lots of plastic and polystyrene, even though the item was not fragile at all. Great item, delivered in a non eco-friendly way.
