The Omega Seamaster is an iconic dive watch, and it lives on today as the brand’s best selling line. But if it’s vintage you’re searching for, this one will go down in the record books due to its historical significance. This 1968 Omega Seamaster 300 was found in the briefcase of one Lt. Colonel George Aikman Finter, who was killed in action in Vietnam on a recon mission for the203rd RAC Hawkeyes 1st Platoon. The automatic watch on its original Nato strap was sealed in his briefcase for over 40 years along with letters of condolence from President Richard Nixon and Army General William Westmoreland, Bronze Star Citation, Finter’s IDs, and other personal effects. The precious watch and artifacts were discovered in 2013, and the owner has generously offered them up as historical items. The watch and Finter’s personal documents are truly special items that hopefully will never be separated by whomever acquires the unique set.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
