Other: Looking for a high-grade vintage watch from a powerhouse brand at a relatively affordable price point? Consider this absolutely gorgeous 1960s Omega Seamaster! It's a great size at 35mm excluding the crown and it slides comfortably under the cuff of a shirt or jacket. This luminous model is a rare configuration of the 166.010. This particular example is in beautiful original condition with a thick case and matching silky-smooth Omega "beads of rice" bracelet. We love the hippocampus logo on the caseback. Even the crystal is original and signed in the center. As an added bonus, the in-house Omega 565 automatic movement has been completely overhauled by our watchmaker. The 565 is fitted with 24 jewels and beats at 19,800 BPH. It features a quick-set date display at 3 o'clock, which can be adjusted by repeatedly pushing and pulling the crown.
