1965 Omega Vintage Mens Classic Automatic Watch - 10K Gold Filled & Stainless Steel


Item No. 6991

Today's offering showcases this classic Omega made for the American market. In essence an American version of the Seamaster without the model's moniker on the dial, it is both waterproof (originally) and automatic.

Powering the watch is one of Omega's top-tier caliber 550 movements, one of the last superior 500's series movements used before Omega began trying to reduce their costs. Omega's 500 series was one of the finest mass produced automatics from the era.Housing the superb mechanism is a shapely gold-filled and stainless steel case. It is a so-called "Tropical or Hypoallergenic" example with a gold filled top with original stainless steel back. These characteristics make it more skin friendly, as well as much more rugged and durable when worn in warm climates.

Its timeless silver "Explorer" style face has Arabic numerals for the primary hours.

It has fully Omega parts. Its original case is in honest condition and has never been polished. Its silver pearl dial is bright and clean, restored in vintage times.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it and installed a new genuine Omega crown. It is keeping accurate time.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand 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 and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

Celebrating humanity's supreme achievements and performances, from man's landing on the moon to the Olympic competitions, Omega watches have been prized for generations by those seeking the most precise timepieces in the world. Since its creation in 1848 by Louis Brandt, Omega has relentlessly pursued watchmaking perfection, earning worldwide honors and fame.

Worn on the wrists of Michael Schumacher, Pierce Brosnan, Michael Phelps, and Ernie Els, Omega watches rank with those from Rolex
