    Hi All,
    I have decided to sell my Iconic Omega Seamster. It was bought back in the day, (about 12yrs ago), when an unmolested example could still be found at a pawn shop arriving complete with wrist cheese and on the strap pictured which may even be the original but i can’t make out embossing. Most importantly, the case presented with the original factory, brushed finish with no signs of polishing evident.
    The blue sunburst dial is unblemished and the lume has attained a lovely patina (lume is intact on hands, just a shadow in photos). The high dome crystal, original crown and strap buckle have the Omega symbol. I have swapped out two parts, the inner chapter ring, as the original had a scratch and the white seconds hand with a blue hand to help with legibility. Both new parts are genuine Omega and were bought from Ofrei. The originally fitted parts are included with sale should you wish to swap back.
    Finally, all features (date & chrono) work as they should and the timekeeping is accurate. The movement is very clean but service history is unknown.


    Please feel free to ask any questions. Watch can be viewed in Melbourne area if requested.
    Sale is by bank transfer, Paypal or face to face in Melbourne.
    I have many watch sales on both Timezone.com and Ebay.
    Will post internationally through Australia Post fully insured only.

    Asking AUD$4450 + shipping

    Thanks for looking and to OF for space!

    Love the 176.007, all of them! GLWS, this one is wonderful :)

    To note: the 176.007 uses Cal. 1040... Cal. 1340, which is the Lemania the 1040 is based on, doesn't have the 24hr indicator at 9 o'clock. My 1340 (or 1341, not quite sure at this stage!) -based Tissot navigator says hi, to illustrate the point :)

    cheers for the kind comments about that funky Tissot of mine. The Omega Cal. 1040 your gorgeous watch is equipped with is originally based on Lemania's Cal. 1340, but takes it one step further. Chuck Maddox's (RIP) comments linked above don't disagree. Nor does our very own's @Andy K 's website, which is the current reference on all things 1040/1041. Where they differ is, your watch (like all 176/001-7, Speedy MkIII's, Speedy MkIV's, and a few others were there others btw? all equipped w/ the 1040 - then the S125 on the 1041) has a 24hr disc whereas most 1340-equipped watches (such as my Navigator above, actually come to think of it I'm not sure whether it's a 1340 or 1341 in there, doesn't matter as there are just very very tiny differences between both... but this is drifting off-topic :D) do not. This is a visual tell-tale from the dial side, there are more once you crack the caseback open I believe.

    again, GLWS, very nice watch, I have a soft spot for all these asymetric designs based on this movement family. Not trying to be pedantic here, just to help with your sale (and its title) :)

    An evil scientist was wearing the 176.007 in License to Kill (1989).
