Here is a wonderful and rare, all original Omega Seamaster Chronometer from 1967 in an oversized version. The radially brushed silver dial has a steel Omega logo and emblem and railroad style steel hour markers with black contrast, wider marker at 12 o’clock. It is in very fine condition apart from slight wear along the rim such as at 6 and 11 o’clock. The baton hands have the original black contrast and are in very fine condition. The steel framed window at 3 o’clock displays the date, which can be semi quick-set by repeatedly pulling the crown out to the outermost position. This should only be done with the hour hand at the bottom half of the dial. 


The wide stainless steel bezel has a subtle sunburst pattern and is in very fine condition with light overall wear. The bold stainless steel case with the original crown and heavy lugs is in very fine condition, with a brushed face and sides separated by a polished bevel. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition, with a well preserved hippocampus logo and some overall wear. The case does not seem to ever have been polished.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap and buckle of good quality.


Inside the watch, perhaps the best watch movement ever made, Omega’s caliber 564, beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in May 2024 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


This beautiful and rare Seamaster is a pleasure to own and wear with its great condition and size. This is a watch that can be worn for both formal and more casual occasions and it is great as part of a regular rotation schedule.


Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.


NB! Note that we are based in Switzerland and that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
