Here we have a 1966 Omega Seamaster 600 wih a 34mm stainless steel case, manually wound movement and screw down case back.
The '600' range was named because they use the 600 series movements (the automatics of the period tended to be 6XX series calibres while the manual wind movements such as the 601 or 613 were manual winds.
Different Seamaster models were named with different numbers. The 300 represented depth rating, 30 represented the movement width and 600, the movement type. A lot of people often assume numbers represent depth rating but you certainly would not want to take this watch 600 meters down.
The dial on this has a slight champagne tone to the silver on which sits lume tipped pencil hands and applied baton hour markers.
Thie case design has a utilitarian look, there are no fancy lugs, polished bevels or precious metals. This was made as a solid tool watch with a workhorse movement, steel case and easily readable dial.
This is fitted to a quality Swiss N.S.A bracelet. The screw down case back displays the Omega Hippocampus. Original signed crown.
This watch uses the manually wound cal 601.
This 17 jewels and a 48 hour power reserve.
Frequency of 19,800
This watch is in good original condition with the dial showing some light ageing spots and patination to the lume on the hands and markers. The case is in overall good condition and the crystal is scratch free. The movement has been serviced by us so is clean and keeping excellent time.
