For sale ($3750 OBRO) I have the rare Omega Seamaster Professional Lillehammer 1994 Olympics 41 MM automatic watch, reference 2832.21.98 (9 of 194, truly a limited run !! )As probably you know by now Omega has been through recent years the official timekeeper of the Olympic events, issuing in every event multiple commemorative models. On 1994 the Winter Olympics were in Lillehammer, Norway and the official timekeeper was not Omega, but rather Seiko !
Looks like Omega didn't like that and decided to still issue a commemorative watch for the occasion, but for the Swiss olympic team. This watch was was issued on a few editions to the public and sold exclusively in Switzerland:
1- Stainless steel case, medium and full size in quartz, numbered edition
2- Stainless steel case, medium and full size chronometer automatic (caliber 1109), limited and numbered run of 194 pieces each
3- 18K YG case, medium and full size chronometer automatic (caliber 1109), limited and numbered run of 49 pieces each
The dial is white with the very nice, original wave design and has the Swiss flag and the olympic symbol as in honor of the olympics and the Swiss olympic team. The chronometer automatic models were released on a very nice ivory leather box and came with leather bands (one for each color of the olympic rings) and came with a wood spring bar tool as well (see pictures below from the Omega, a Journey Through Time Book)
The watch for sale is from the full size chronometer automatic from the limited, numbered run edition of 194 pieces (9 of 194, given the low number could have been owned by a VIP client, perhaps?) and comes with the original ivory leather box with wood spring bar tool and a stainless steel, Bond style 1523 / 825 20 mm bracelet (comes with 6 full size and 2 half size removable links in good conditions, very little stretch on the band as shown).
I don't have the original warranty paperwork for the watch nor the original leather bands, but it was serviced by Time Care Inc (Rik Dietel) early this year. The watch case and rotating bezel / insert has a few marks as shown; would say it is in good conditions for a 25 year old watch !. The rear of the lugs have a few marks from previous bracelet changes, the white wave dial and the sapphire crystal are in good conditions as shown (as part of the service the hands were replaced and the dial was re-lumed).Included with the watch head are:
1- Good conditions 20 MM Omega bond style stainless steel bracelet, reference 1523/825 with 6 full size and 2 half size removable links; should fit a 7 1/2 inch wrist.
2- Omega leather ivory box with wood spring bar tool; exterior white Omega Carton Box.Payment TERMS / Shipment / Feedback:
