OMEGA "SHOM" Ref.166.0177

The SHOM Seamaster was so named because Omega designed and built it for France’s Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine, a government institution that documents and studies the oceans and publishes charts, maps and guides for mariners. The watch itself was modest in its specifications compared to some other Seamasters of the day, but 200 meters of water resistance was presumably been plenty for the purpose of charting the coasts of France. What made the SHOM so cool was its angular case, which looks like it was chiseled out of a solid block of stainless steel: pure ‘70s design. The dial, on the other hand, is a sober remnant of ‘60s Seamasters: sword hands, rectangular markers and old-fashioned script text. These design cues comes together in a watch that is prized by collectors who like its no-nonsense aesthetic, its “built-to-spec” back story and its rarity.
