Omega Automatic Cal 565

Case material:

Stainless Steel

Ref: 166.027


Here we have an interesting dive watch from Omega dating to 1967, with a 37mm case, friction fit bakelite bezel and automatic movement. The design of this watch shares some characteristics with it's 'big brother' the Seamaster 300, though is smaller in size and a little more minimalistic in design.


The dial is black with lumed baton hour markers and pencil hands. There is a date aperture at 3 which is quick set via pulling the crown out to second position.


The bezel is bidirectional and friction fit, so it slides rather than clicks (common in early dive watches). There is a lume dot at 12 too.


The stainless steel case has a screw down case back with a polished finish. The case back displays the Seamaster Hippocampus logo.


This watch comes on an aftermarket stainless steel beaded bracelet.

Condition Report

The watch is in good vintage condition. We have not polished the case at all as we prefer to leave this type of watch in it's original condition. We have polished the crystal but not replaced it as it has it's original Omega signed crystal. The bracelet is not new but is in very good condition.
