DESCRIPTION. After collecting vintage watches for thirty years, i found this very early Seamaster 300. I knew from first glance under the scratched plexy and through the dirt it was a gem. My only concern is that someone had fitted the earlier model broad arrow hands. Upon showing it to other collectors, they pointed it that it could well be correct as the first batches were fitted with left over hand from previous model and one of my pictures showing is early model in omega brochure with these hands.
As you can see from the pictures, this 57 year old watch has been worn and possibly spent most of its life in some draw. Case has some marks but still retains its sharp edges. The case back shows minimal wear with very deep engraving. The bakelite bezel is the MK11 i believe, and the bezel ring still has the machine edging that you never see anymore and also fitted with the original flat bottom crown. The dial has some ageing to the lume but i believe there been no moisture in the watch as the black dial has none of the normal discolouration you usually see. The hands, well theres a very good chance they are also original just like the rest on the watch. This is now back form full movement service and original plexy was polished.
I dont think i would ever find another!!
