    Hello! I'm a new seamaster owner and newcomer to these forums. I picked up this Seamaster recently and can't seem to find any information about this particular caseback - I've never seen anything like it and was expecting the usual seahorse, so I was hoping someone here might be able to help!

    I've posted a few pictures, below. If you have any other information about this watch I would be highly interested as well.

    Kind regards, K

    It looks like a presentation watch with a company logo. Which company I don't know.

    You have the reference number and caliber, which is enough to research the watch itself. No idea on the logo.

    Note that replacement case backs are available from Omega for this reference.

    Cheers, Al

    That's good to know! Right from Omega, or from a third-party distributer? Either way, thanks for the info, Al.

    The third party distributors have been cut off, so unless someone had them in stock, Omega is the source. A watchmaker with a parts account can also access them.
