This Watch

We have here a really interesting Omega Seamaster 600, model 135.011, from 1966.  As if this original, champagne tinted , hammered dial wasn't gorgeous enough, we love the way it has aged, giving the dial a fantastic, tropicalised effect.  Gilt, all Arabic raised numerals in the most unusual design, pitched in the center and tapering away. Gilt, stick hour, minute and central seconds hands complete the dial.  The dial is signed with the Omega name and logo at 12 o'clock and with 'Seamaster, 600' at 6 o'clock.
The 34.5mm, stainless steel, screw-back case is complete with the famous Omega Seamaster hippocampus logo on the case back. Inside is the mechanical, manual wind caliber 601, fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired the watch on a brown/tan leather strap, but it looks great dressed up on black too.

Extra Points 

Founded by Louis Brandt in 1848, Omega started out as La Generale Watch Co., an unassuming, but international business.   It wasn't until 1885, when the company had been taken over by Louis' sons, that the first mass-produced caliber, the Labrador, was released.  By 1903, the company had renamed itself Omega and only two years later were they the official timekeepers at many sporting events across Switzerland.  Omega stepped onto an international stage in 1932 as the official timekeepers at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the first of over 20 Olympic Games. Omega were one of the 12 companies, now known as the Dirty Dozen, commissioned to produce watches for the British Military during the Second World War.  One of Omega's most iconic watches, the Seamaster, was introduced in 1948 to celebrate their 100th anniversary.  Over 70 years later, it is still one of Omega's best selling watches.  Omega made headlines in 1962 when Wally Schirra wore the Speedmaster as part of NASA's first crewed spaceflight programme, making the Speedmaster the first watch to enter space.  It was only a few years before the Speedmaster became the official chronograph for the American space missions and was worn by Buzz Aldrin as well as the Apollo 13 crew.  Omega are still involved with NASA and have been instrumental in creating vital pieces of equipment for space exploration. 

This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.

What we think

It is a great fit for both men and women, Not a common dial variation as only around 20% of watches come with all Arabic numerals. and about as good a vintage, pre owned Omega as you will find.  The perfect for the vintage watch newbie or seasoned collector.  If you're looking for an affordable, attractive and reliable vintage watch, you'd be pushed to find a better example along with the patina and character to match.
