Here we have an early 60s Seamaster with a 34mm stainless steel monocoque case, linen dial and automatic movement. This style of Seamaster is more commonly found in Seamaster De Villes, which were introduced in 1963 an evolved from this model which was made for a few years before 'De Ville' was added to the dial.
The whole design of these is a little more ornate than standard Seamasters and without a screw down case back retain a slimmer profile than most automatic Seamasters of the period. The lugs are slim and long and the case has a polished finish with the Seamaster Hippocampus on the back.
The dial is also more dressy and has a linen texture, slim baton indices and slim pencil hands. You'll also notice there is no date feature which keeps the design symmetrical.
This example has it's original Omega crown and a replacement plexiglass crystal.
We have fitted a quality dark brown leather strap with stainless steel buckle.
This watch uses the Omega automatic cal 552.
This has 24 jewels and a 50 hour power reserve

The watch is in overall very good condition. There is minimal wear to the case and the crystal has been polished by us. The dial shows some light ageing as shown in the pictures. The movement is clean and keeping excellent time.
