The Omega Seamaster 300 is one of the most famous and renowned divers watches of the 20th Century. The first incarnation of these remarkable watches was released in 1957 as part of the now famous ‘professional’ trilogy, they were an instant hit with professional and semi-professional divers alike. In 1962/63 Omega updated the model into what has become one of the most iconic dive watches in history, the 166.024, the case was larger and incorporated a crown guard, the bezel was a much more durable Bakelite version and the watch was much more substantial at over 40 mm in diameter, the watch also used an updated automatic cal 565 movement.
The watch was designed for ultimate durability, hewn from solid stainless steel, with screw back the mat black dial with tritium markers and hands was easily legible and the large bezel much easier to use under water.
The example presented here dates from c 1966 and is the highly desirable ‘big triangle’
Comes with the Omega extract from the archives confirming its point of delivery as Japan in September 1969
Please note that at some point in the past the original watch case back has been polished to remove an engraving so I have fitted a new service case back but included the original item as well.
The watch has been fully serviced by AJHSL watch makers and is working perfectly and fully guaranteed for 12 months and comes fitted to a new quality Italian leather strap.
