Calibre 267 manual winding, 17 jewels, 18000 VpH, with hour, minute, and subsidiary seconds

Case Material

Stainless steel, Omega-signed crown, snap-on caseback, outer marked WATERPROOF, the inner stamped 2990-1

Matte black, signed Ω, OMEGA, Ranchero, 30 mm, and Seamaster below, radium luminescent indices, Arabic hour numerals at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock, and subsidiary seconds, further signed SWISS MADE at the bottom

Condition

Presented in excellent, pre-owned, condition with an attractive and warm, deep yellow radium lume patina, matte black dial, and ‘Broad Arrow’ handset. Unusually, as well as ‘Ranchero’ branding, this example has the additional ‘Seamaster’ logo printed above the small seconds register. The case shows signs of wear expected for watch of this period and has been sympathetically polished, but retains thickness to the lugs on all corners. All in all, this is a very attractive example of a not commonly-seen, desirable, reference.
