Omega Automatic Cal 552
Here we have a classic 60s Seamaster from Omega. This has a gold plated case, a dial showing a warm patina and screw down case back. The 5XX series Omega movements produced predominantly in the 1960s are often considered some of the best, making these collectable pieces.
This one has a 34mm gold plated case with a an off white dial which has aged evenly to a warm caramel shade. The hands show some light patination and appear to be in original condition.
The stainless steel case back is plain (correct for this model as they made them with the logo and without) and screws down.
The lugs are straight and the bezel slim giving this watch a dressy feel and a lower profile on the wrist than some other 'beefy lug' models of the 60s. The crown has been replaced and is not signed, the crystal has been polished.
We have fitted a new brown leather strap with a gold plated buckle to this watch.
This watch uses the Omega Automatic Cal 552.
This has 24 jewels and a 50 hour power reserve.
Frequency of 19.800
This watch is in overall excellent condition. The dial and hands show some ageing and the case shows some very light signs of wear though the plating has not worn through. The crystal has been polished so is clean. The strap is new and unworn nd the movement is clean and keeping excellent time.
