1969 Omega Vintage Mens Classic Automatic Watch - 10K Gold Filled & Stainless Steel


Item No. 4865SH

The wristwatch showcased in today's offering is an Omega made for the America market. In essence an American version of the Seamaster without the model's moniker on the dial, it is both waterproof (originally) and automatic.

It is powered by one of Omega's well-regarded 500 series of movements that powered models like the Seamaster and Constellation. These mechanisms were the bi-directional winding automatic movements made to replace the company's uni-directional winding "bumper" mechanisms.

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.

The watch remains in original condition. The case is in excellent condition. The original silver dial is just short mint. And the Omega Caliber 550 movement is very clean.

Our watchmaker has freshly serviced the movement. We have also equipped it with a new crocodile band 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.


Celebrating humanity's supreme achievements and performances, from man's landing on the moon to the Olympicc ompetitions, Omega watches have been prized for generations by those seeking the most precise timepieces in the world. Since its creation in1848 by Louis Brandt, Omega has relentlessly pursued watchmaking perfection, earning worldwide honors and fame.
