Overall looks and works wonderful. The watch with stainless steel Omega bracelet still looks fairly modern today. Will look equally classy if you wear for the office and out for the evening. We can enclose a black leather strap for free on request after checkout. Naturally its nice to change over once in a while and gives the watch another dimension as per the picture.
These vintage Omega Seamaster's Automatic are becoming solid investments. At this price I do not think you can lose money if you was to sell on in the near future.
As you can see from the photos the watch is in very good condition. Naturally expect imperfections as its unrealistic to expect mint condition. This is a watch from the 1960's as will have some imperfections so please study the photos as this naturally makes up part of the description.
This Seamaster is approx 35mm wide.
The rare green Omega box is in near mint condition. These on their own are worth a few hundred £ / € / $. The strap included is thicker than original so the box now does not close absolutely flush. Still the box is really nice always good to have.

The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in excellent condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.
To drum up interest I am shipping Worldwide for this one. Any collector out there I'm sure you would agree what a rare find this is. I can dispatch within 24 hours of payment being received. You will receive very fast.
