This vintage Omega Seamaster is Automatic, which means you won't have to wind it up because it gets energy from the movement of your arm and it also means that the case size is slightly thicker than the manually wound watches from the age.
At 35 mm it is a typical vintage size watch but there is a bit more heft to it and hence more wrist presence, appreciated especially by those of us with larger wrists.
This Omega Seamaster is in original condition and judging by the inscriptions on the inside of the case back it has been regularly serviced throughout its lifetime and runs very well.
The stainless steel case is unpolished and has natural wear marks commensurate with age but no deep scratches. The case could easily be polished to look like new but in the interest of collector value we decided not to do it.
Same goes for the light champagne coloured dial which has developed a nice patina with light age spots which are evenly distributed. An original dial is an original dial and for an over 50 years old watch this dial is looking pretty awesome!
The screw-down case back has the Seamaster monster but what we love the most about this watch is the lugs. They have lots of angles and surfaces, once you notice their shape you can't stop liking them!
This watch is in 100% original condition with original parts only except the acrylic crystal which has been replaced and is scratch-free. The crocodile embossed Italian calf leather strap is obviously also a replacement. It goes really well with this two-tone watch but in case you want to swap it to something else it has quick-release spring bars so you don't need a tool to swap straps.
The 565 movement has a quick-set date complication that is operated by repeatedly pumping the crown down from the date set position.
This watch is over 50 years old and while it has passed our testing and does keep time and has a good power reserve, it must be taken into account that it is a vintage watch and its accuracy is not to be compared to modern quartz watches.
This watch comes in a generic black presentation box, certificate of authenticity and one year warranty from Arlington watches.
