Today's offering showcases this handsome vintage Omega mens. It's monococque - or one-piece - case initially provided a significant degree of water resistance.
It measures just under 35mm in diameter without the crown, about one millimeter smaller than a Rolex Datejust.
It presents in previously done gorgeous restored condition. The original dial has been previously refinished and is signed Seamaster 600. We have most often seen these with Geneve or De Ville signed dial and don't know whether the current printing is original.
Powering it is its very fine handwound caliber 613 movement with push-pull quick-setting date.
It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, and winding crown. It has been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmaker and is running very true.
For the finishing touch we have installed a new Italian leather 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.
Omega watches can be found on the wrists of many prominent figures including Pierce Brosnan, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Ernie Els, and Prince William, and one graced the wrist of President John F. Kennedy. Omega has been the official timekeeper for 21 Olympic Games and is the official chronometer of NASA.
