    Very, very, very good looking watch!

    May I ask what strap you have there?

    That is absolutely splendid - what a terrific find. I love the dial and "slimline" bezel, it's a very classy looking diver indeed.

    What's the reference number...? I feel an acquisitive phase coming on.

    Hmm, I feel this has birth year potential for me.

    It's lovely.

    Another vintage Omega cracker; how many more of these do you have?

    That's very nice, looks in fantastic condition.

    Is it a recent purchase or have you had it a while? Is that the original box too?

    That gets a BIG thumbs-up from me too. I`m not normally a fan of vintage divers but this looks so sharp I can`t help liking it.

    That bracelet's familiar too. I have a steel seamaster dress watch (in pieces at the moment) with the same one. 19mm end pieces if I`m not mistaken and as rare as hens teeth. Whether the bracelet and watch started out together is open to debate, but it's certainly the right period.

    Wear it carefully...and don`t damage that bezel!

    Paul

    Edit: just had another look at the pics and I reckon the case is the same as mine. This one has a diver's bezel, mine hasn`t . If I ever find time from kitchen refits and doing watches for other folks, I`ll get mine restored back to mint condition. This has spurred me on!

    Watch is in original shape. There were no refinish or something like that. Box is also original with original papers :)

    If this watch hasn`t been refinished, it's spent it's life in a drawer not being worn! Looking at the pics I was admiring the sharpness of the edges. Usually they get 'softened' a little when a watch is refinished.

    Very rarely do watches turn up in this condition.

    Its when they do turn up in this condition that I feel if I can get them I do, as its probably the only chance to get one so good, unfortunately I have not a lot of money and never save it up so up to now its only a couple of near NOS Seiko's

    That Seamaster is utterly beautiful though.
