On authentic Omega watches , the logo is a separate piece of metal attached to the dial. With imposters, on the other hand, the logo is typically painted on. Most luxury watch brands , including Omega, design their watches with Swiss movements. Because of this, the second hand should have a smooth, fluid motion without making the ticking sound of Quartz watches.

During this decade, Seamasters took on a heavy sport and functional look and came with more diver-oriented features, such as higher depth ratings, calibrated rotating bezels, chronograph functions, and high-visibility dials.

Other recent and generally still available models include the Seamaster series with meter water-resistance in a dress watch style.
At the time the Seamaster was introduced in , standard watches were extremely susceptible to water damage from even a dip in a sink or tub. The Seamaster was created as a line of standard dress-style watches which were ‘waterproof’ as they called them then suitable for swimming and other light water activities. Their water resistance then is about comparable to a 10 to 30 meter rating today. The now common diver’s watch style was unknown at that time.
A few years later, OMEGA added the comparable sportier models that were designed for even deeper water activities like diving that need a rating of to meters.
