There is something about the early vintage Omega Seamasters that truly embodies the golden era of dive watches of the 1960-1970's. Omega has a long history and heritage in dive watches, which dates back to the 1930s. The seahorse adorned case back of the Seamaster series pays tribute to Neptune, the Roman god of the sea. The seahorse logo was conceived by engraver Jean-Pierre Borle. He was inspired by an image of Neptune driving a chariot pulled by seahorses, which is why the Omega seahorses are depicted wearing bridles.The Reference 165.024 has a specific feeling and look that centers it as one of the most desirable vintage Omega diving watches ever produced by the brand. From the bi-directional ratcheting bezel, luminous bezel insert, the high visibility dial, and overall larger size for a watch of its time period allowing it to remain relevant to today's sizing trends. The Seamaster 300 references are becoming harder and harder to find as collectors have begun to hold on to them due to their retaining value and collectibility over time.
