I need to raise some funds so I decided to sell one of my beautiful Seamaster 300s.
I bought it from the original owner in Sicily (Italy) last year, I serviced it and redone the bezel from Renè (a perfect work).
It's a really collector piece.
The dial is stunning. With no signs or marks. It has two little spots due to humidity between 1-2 and 11-12 hours. The patina is really really cool. A perfect yellow.
The indexes and hands are tritium, not radium.
Here an interesting article from Moonwatch Only on radium dials.
It's a charateristics I've seen on the other mine 14755 with 8 serial numbers near bought from the son of the original owner in Florence some years ago. It has tritium indexes and I'll post a photo with both.
here's a link to the other my 14755 with same dial.
The hands are perfect. They are full of tritium and with no cracks. I noticed that the steel of the hands is dicolouring or oxiding. They have the same charateristics of my other 14755.
The movement 552 is really in new conditions as you can see from pictures. It works strong. It was serviced last year.
The crown is the original with the old logo and 24 theet.
The plexyglass is original and in very good conditions. You can see perfectly the old logo at the center.
The case is really really a pro of this watch. Lightly polished on the lugs in the past. The caseback is like new. The best I've ever seen. Please note that it still has the original gasket for the caseback.
As I told before the bezel was redone by Renè in Germany. He did a great job!
His bracelet is the correct 7912 3/62 long 16,5cm. It has 7 central springs. All tight. It is broken on the Omega clasp as you can see from photos but the clasp close correctly. When weared is unnoticeable. Unfortunately the 6 end links are aftermarket. It has been never polished. You can see well the difference of the original polishing between the external and internal links.
Included in the sale there are the extract of archives (delivered to Italy in 1962) and the rare Seamaster 300 box (without the inner part). I also include in the sale the original springs to fix the bracelet at the lugs. Yes they were in the watch when I bought it.
The watch is located in Italy near Milan.
I ask for this beauty € 12600
I prefer the payment via Paypal friends.
Shipping will be discussed. But if the situation will be better we can plan a F2F here or in EU.
For collectors outside EU, I can plan also a short trip ( if the flight is not so expensive :) ) to consign it personally. I'm locked in my city since February and I want to travel soon, with all the safe conditions permitted. Actual laws in Italy permit to travel from 2nd June.
I'm not a dealer. I'm only a humble collector of vintage watches. I collect for the love of these vintage timepieces. I study hard, especially on this forum. If there is any question I'll be happy to help or share my knowledge and passion for the vintage Seamaster 300s.
I have references here, on Omega forums and Orologi & Passioni Italian forum.
