Delightful 1956 Omega Seamaster in very good condition and a dial with speckled patina.
Classic robust round case with beefy lugs, a watch for the "active man"! This watch presents very well with its 14k gold plate case and case-back. There is some wear to the plating on the four lugs and elsewhere but it's hard to notice without magnification. Thee are no dents and just minor scratches. Non signed crown
The dial is in good condition featuring speckled patina with even coverage. Breguet style numbers on the quarters and arrowhead batons elsewhere. Gold coloured Dauphine hands. Sweep seconds hand. Signed Omega, Seamaster, automatic and Swiss.
Inside, the case is marked L&K and 14k gold filled. Lutringer & Kammerer were American case makers and this watch was originally exported to the USA.
Powered by the in-house produced Omega 500 calibre. This is a full rotor automatic.
Comes with a new ono Omega black genuine leather strap and Omega signed buckle.
