This specific example dates to 1964 and has a stunning "Tropical" brown dial. The watch also retains its original dot over 90 (DON) bezel which has taken on a sought after and visually pleasing grey blue fade. Additionally, the case remains thick and retains the factory case geometry showing honest wear from use.

The case is in excellent overall condition showing honest wear from use while retaining thick and even lugs. The original bezel insert is "Dot over 90" (DON) and has achieved a wonderful grey fade which is eye-catching in the light and provides a unique contrast to the dial. The "Pre-Moon" Seahorse adorned case back has very minimal wear and is clearly visible. The crown is an early omega replacement as is the bottom pusher which was replaced at some point during a service interval. The watch will be provided on a handmade leather strap of your choice (Dusty Suede Shown)


The matte "step" dial with applied Omega logo has taken on a deep and even tropical brown coloration and the dial itself is free from any scratches or blemishes. The tritium markers on the dial shows some lume degradation but when viewed under U.V. Light still show the presence of tritium. The original hands show some patina and glow properly when exposed to U.V. light. The hour hand does show some lume degradation as can be seen in the photos.


None. The service history is unknown but the piece is running at spec and keeping accurate time.
