The Omega Seamaster is one of the most renowned divers watches of the 20th century, shooting to fame in 1957 with the introduction of the famous Seamaster 300 divers watch. Between 1957 and 1987 Omega produced a wide range of professional and semi professional divers watches, all manufactured to the highest quality.
This example is a Seamaster 120 ‘deep blue’ so known because of its striking blue dial and and deep blue bezel. The watch is really distinctive and has a great wrist presence due to its 40mm case (excluding crown). Whilst depth rated to 120 meters these watches shared the same features as the Seamaster 300, including screw case back and screw crown, they also incorporated the Omega ‘clicking’ bakelite bezel and hesalite crystal.
This deep blue (reference 165.073) from c 1969 has just been serviced by master Omega watchmaker Simon Freese, it is one of the nicest we have ever seen, the case and bezel are virtually flawless and the original tritium dial and matching hands are perfect, with a stunning even patina.
This really is one of the coolest and most distinctive Omega divers watches of the 20th century, they are becoming increasingly rare, especially with flawless original dials. A great watch in stunning condition and one not to be missed.
