1964 Omega Seamaster 300 Diver watch, ST 165.014-63, cal. 552. This watch includes an extract from Omega's archives.
It is the beautiful early straight lug execution of Omegas classic Seamster model, which is a cornerstone of Omegas history.
This example comes with an extract from the archives, demonstrating the specifics of the watch and its delivery. It was ordered to the UK on June 11th, 1964. The movement is original to the watch. Some get replaced as the 552 is common in Omega watches
of the 60's.
The dial has been re-lumed along with the hands and the bezel has been re-done to a high standard. The bezels often struggle over the years due to the bakelite degradation and painted nature. The bezel looks to be a German example of a finished dial and is of an excellent standard.
