About this watch

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 in to what has become one of the most iconic dive watches in history, the 165.024, 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 cal 550-552 movement, which in a tweaked format was also used in Omega chronometer models.

The watch was designed for ultimate durability, hewn from solid stainless steel, with screw back and in later models screw crown, the mat black dial with tritium markers and hands was easily legible and the large bezel much easier to use under water.

The example reference 165.024 presented here dates from c 1968 and it is in simply time warp condition and definitely one of the best I have seen for a long time . 

I have fitted this to a quality nubuck strap which picks the stunning creamy colour of the original tritium markers superbly 

A great watch to wear with pride whilst also a perfect investment piece, In stock and ready for world wide shipping
