Offered here a Very Collectible Omega Seamaster Professional 600 dating to 1970 as far as we can ascertain.
I have owned this watch for over 12 years and was not in particular hurry to part with it but the time has come for someone else to enjoy it.
The watch comes with it's original bracelet.
The hands were replaced with original Omega replacement hands.
This was the second generation of the watch that was to become known as PloProf. The case was machined out of one solid block of steel. Access to the movement is from the top after removing the bezel. I have included 12 pictures here but have a few others so one can see all the parts involved with the movement removed as well. The red button is used to lock the bezel in desired setting. To change the setting one needs to push on the red button and turn the bezel. This watch was last serviced in 2008. At that time we also had a new Omega red button installed but you will receive the old one as well. The dial has a couple of very small imperfections, some paint chipped off in the center under the hands, can be seen more when the hands are removed. There is also a tiny blemish right under I in PROFESSIONAL as you can see in the pic. I think it is something the watchmaker somehow dropped there. May be it can be somehow removed but I did not want to try removing it. It can only be seen under magnification.
As the watch was serviced last so many years ago I do not guarantee the water resistance!!
If you want to take it to water have it pressure tested first.
I never take any of my vintage watches to shower or swimming. More pics. for serious buyer.
Payment by bank to bank wire transfer to our 20 established business account at Bank of America or by Zelle or bank wire transfer to Chase Bank.
The bank wire runs $20 in the U.S. to send and $20 for me to receive. It is very safe for you and me.
If you are comfortable with a cashier's check or U.S. Postal Money Order I am fine with these too.
