Omega Seamaster ‘Recife’, Ref. 396.0987

CHF 1,000


Very rare set of two Omega Seamaster ‘Recife’ quartz wristwatches. Gentleman’s oxidized stainless steel Seamaster 120m ‘Recife’, Ref. 396.0987, Cal. 1430, 39mm and ladies oxidized steel Seamaster ‘Recife’, Ref. 596.0061 / 796.0856, Cal. 1426, 25 mm (excluding the crown). Watches will fit up to 18 cm and 15.5 cm wrists accordingly.

“Recife” is the Portuguese word for “reef”, and also the name of one of the 10 biggest cities of Brazil. Introduced in 1984 this watch was produced for a very short period of time. It was classed as a professional diver/sport watch by Omega and has the same features you would expect from a true dive watch, including unidirectional rotating bezel, domed sapphire crystal and screw down crown (men’s version). Stunning rare black dials with tritium luminous indexes and beautiful diver tritium hands!

A diver’s watch water-resistant to 120m, quartz calibre with date, concave black dial with highly legible tritium hands and dots, unidirectional rotating bezel with luminous  markings, screwed crown protected by shoulders, scratch-resistant domed sapphire crystal. Oxidized steel case and bracelet with velvet-grey finish, soft to the touch but highly resistant to abrasion and corrosion thanks to a technologically advanced surface treatment (micro-blasting and anodic oxidation). Soft lines with no sharp edges or angles. 

Watches are in overall great condition, running and ready to wear or gift!
