Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case is thick and sharp with the original edges and bevels in tact; fantastic original luminous dial has developed incredible and unique patina over time; all lume plots have aged to an attractive yellow hue; lume plot at 3 o'clock has mostly flaked off (common); original luminous hands with original center sweeping-seconds hand; one tiny spot of luminous material missing in the hour hand (barely noticeable); caseback printing remains visible with "SEAMASTER" text at 12 o'clock and "WATERPROOF" text at 6 o'clock

Other: The dial on this 1956 Omega Seamaster Automatic Calendar is the star of the show - Just look at the amazing patina that has developed over the past 60+ years! The beveled arrow hour markers and applied Omega logo glisten when they catch the light (especially out in the sun). The solid stainless steel case with "chubby" lugs wears larger than 34mm, but is slim enough to slide under the cuff of a dress shirt. We also recommend wearing it casually with your favorite wool sweater and jeans. The patinated dial really pops and is the perfect compliment to your fall wardrobe.
