Highlights

The Swiss Watch Co UK Ltd presents the unique Omega Vintage Polaris 1/100 Rattrapante.

Featuring impressive presentation and heritage, this vintage Omega Polaris 1/100 Rattrapante is a throwback to the late eighties era of luxury digital sports watches. A must-see for vintage Omega fans and featuring a formidable array of features, this watch is in Mint condition considering its age.

Created in the 1980s, it emerged at a time when mechanical watches had become close to obsolete, Swiss craftsmanship had been replaced for Japanese precision. But the Swiss fought back, and the Polaris (designed by legendary watchmaker Gerald Genta) was one of the creations it fought back with. Launched ahead of the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games, Omega was desperate to maintain its presence as Olympic timekeeper, a title held since 1932.

Most intriguing about the Polaris collection isn't its quartz movements, which vary from traditional analogue layouts to multi-display analogue-digital hybrids, but its appearance. The lozenge-shaped case and its integrated bracelet were clearly intended to look futuristic, to encourage shoppers that the brand hadn't lost its relevance, buts it's the combination of materials that really sets this watch apart.

In Titanium and Gold, what you get with the Polaris collection is a two-tone band that circled the dial and spread across the case. It might look plated, but actually these are 2mm thick strips of 24-carat gold inlaid into the case. Omega has never revealed how this was achieved, so it remains an intriguing mystery to this day.

Sometimes referred to as the 'Melded Metal' Polaris, This watch comes with immaculate original inner and outer presentation boxes, swing tag, grey Omega document holder, and both omega booklets from the era. Featuring a steel case and Titanium bracelet with 18ct gold detailed inlay.

“I was looking to buy a Rolex watch which for me was a considerable amount of money. I telephoned for some advice and found that Tim was very polite, informative, helpful and friendly. More importantly, my Rolex arrived through the post well packed and undamaged. The watch was just as it had been described and I am very pleased with my purchase and that fact that I found Tim.”
