Matte black, signed Ω, OMEGA, AUTOMATIC, Seamaster 300, with tritium luminescent indices, ‘Small Triangle’ at 12 o’clock, Arabic hour numerals at the cardinal points

Condition

Presented in excellent pre-owned condition, the original dial has pleasing patination with the tritium markers taking on a darker hue, and the handset is likely to have been relumed in the past. The asymmetrical case is good and has expected age-related wear. The original acrylic resin bezel is in very good condition with pleasing age-related surface and depth discolouration. All in all, an attractive and good example of a desirable reference.
