The Omega Ranchero was introduced in 1958 as a combination of the Seamaster case and the popular 'Broad Arrow' hand from the Speedmaster. At the time, however, the watches were unpopular with their intended markets and were promptly discontinued making it a very desirable model for the Omega collector today.
This Ranchero comes with its original strap and buckle, the original sticker is still on the back. It is a unique time capsule of nearly 60 years for the sophisticated collector.
