This Seamaster from the late 1950s is one of the early models that saw the change to more stylish (as seen at the time) integrated lugs. The stainless steel case is in excellent condition with no signs of abuse. No dents or scratches, just minor wear and tear. At 36.5mm diameter this is bigger than the average Seamaster of the period. Case is the 299 1 Ranchero
The dial is in excellent condition and may have been the subject of a historic restoration. Gold coloured hour batons. Dauphine hands and a sweep seconds hand. Applied Omega logo and signed Omega, Seamaster and Swiss Made in black. Omega crown.
Comes with a new black strap.
