This is the classic 1950s Seamaster, the model preferred by the collectors and enthusiasts. Characterized by its robust case design it was marketed as the watch for the active person. Signature beefy lugs.
Quite unusual for the Seamaster this watch is capped in rose gold and whilst there are small dents and scratches there's no sign of the gold rubbing through. It's an automatic watch and still has the original crown. The case-back is fully marked Omega.
The dial is in good condition and has aged well with few marks. Rose gold coloured hands and applied hour batons. Fully signed Omega Seamaster. Small seconds sunken sub-dial at 6.
Inside is the in-house built Omega calibre 491 which runs well.
Comes with an unused non-Omega black leather strap.
