1966 Omega Seamaster Mens Vintage Full Size Watch with 562 Movement, Automatic, Date - Stainless Steel

Omega

Item No. 6419SH

Today's offering showcases this classic and beautifully restored c. 1966 Omega Seamaster.

Powering the watch is Omega's top-tier caliber 562 movement, one of the last superior 500's series movements used before Omega began trying to reduce their costs. It has 24 jewels and is one of the finest mass-produced automatic movements from era.

Uncommonly large for a Seamaster, it measures approximately 36mm in diameter without the crown, the size of Rolex Datejust.

It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, and crown crown and presents in beautiful restored condition.

As part of the restoration the very fine caliber 562 movement with fine swans neck regulation has been disassembled down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled.

1950's and 60's Seamasters are great buys as parts are readily available for their well-made movements, and they're not hard to service.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to the watch's performance.

The Seamaster:
Omega is perhaps best known by watch connoisseurs for its Seamaster line of dive watches. Introduced in 1948, they have been were embraced by water sports enthusiasts and often marry a striking look with a high performance movement.
