For sale or trade is a 1955 Omega Seamaster 2846 reference w/ an original black gilt dial. The dial is non-refinished and has developed an attractive (IMO) and unique patina. The case has been polished, although the bevels on the lugs and “Seamaster” and “Waterproof” on the case back are still visible. The 500 caliber movement runs, winds, and sets fine, but service history is unknown so a service is recommended prior to use. Additional details are below, and feel free to reach out with any questions. Dial: Original black gilt dial has developed an attractive patina. Markers and hands are in nice condition. Radium lume is intact on the hands and mostly intact on the markers. "Swiss " is present below the 6 marker as expected (partially obscured by crystal retention ring).
