    Hi,

    two weeks ago my apartment got broken in and those horrible people turned my apartment upside down, it was a total chaos. And then the worst thing happened, they took my dad´s Omega watch. My dad passed away in 2014 and my mom gave the watch to me just a couple of weeks before the incident.

    I didn´t know much about the watch but I did take some photos before so I´m hoping to get some help to identify as much info as possible. I think my dad bought it during the 90s. Thank you so much in advance.

    Regards,
    Emma

    Don't know the model, but old quartz watches are not that popular. Value would be not more than ~€150.

    Might be higher. It's gold capped and attractive. Try for 500 on your insurance.

    It's a calibre 1425 Seamaster quartz from the early 1980s. It has a nice "pie pan" style dial (a feature more commonly associated with the Constellation line). As such, and without knowing the gold content and condition I'd estimate it's value would probably be in the region of €350 - €500 if making an insurance claim.

    Thanks for all of your replies. If I want to get a new one in the market today, which one and model will be the most matching to the old one? As in an updated version. Could Seamaster 300 models be the closest? I'm happy for all the advice.

    I wouldn't say the 300 is the closest match. That's a sports/tool/diving watch and yours was a dress watch.

    In the current range the closest is probably the Constellation or DeVille line. However, I don't think Omega make quartz models any more, so you're looking at automatic which is more expensive.

    Quartz Seamaster aqua terra? (If they still make it).
