Today's offering showcases this classic and pleasing all-original Seamaster with rare and desirable caliber 560 movement made for the U.S. market.
Omega only ever produced 3,000 total examples of the caliber 560. These movements were split across nine models made just for the U.S. market to avoid higher tariffs, making each in effect a "limited edition."
The centerpiece of the watch is its elegant original linen dial.
It is in honest and very pleasing original condition - it is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, crown, and even signed crystal!
Its untouched dial is mint. Its case presents as excellent condition with a couple slivers of gold wear. It has not been previously significantly polished - it presents very nicely on the wrist
'60's and early 70's Seamasters are great long-term buys as parts are readily available for their well-made movements, and they're not hard to service.
It has recently previously been cleaned and oiled, and a brand new correct Omega crystal has been installed. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Note: Published examples of similar watches can be found in Marco Richon's work Omega: A Journey Through Time, 2007, pg. 403.
