Today's offering showcases this prime example of a classic steel and 18K gold pre-Bond Seamaster 200m dive watch. These Seamasters were the pre-cursors to what are recognized as the James Bond watches. It has a a unidirectional diver's bezel and quartz movement with quick-setting hour for easy switching of times zones.
They are cool watches with a great look. And this rare example one presents gorgeously.
It is fully Omega and presents as a 9.5 out of 10. The dial has been expertly refinished. Usually the bezel insert shows the most wear on these watches - it is a 9.8 with no blemishes.
Please note that in the photos the gold and black tone looks different than it does in person. In person the bezel insert looks a pure gloss black and the gold is traditional 18K yellow in tone.
Included with the purchase is a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
