    Hey I am curious about the omega seamaster ck2937, I own one myself (2937-1) and would like to know more about it.

    What i "know" already:
    It has the caliber 267 movement.
    Made 1956-1958ish.

    What i would like to know:
    1.The differens between 2937-1 2937-2 2937-3 etc.
    2.Some People call it a transition model, why?
    3.why do they often have hands, dial or both that are similar to the Ranchero. (this could perhaps answer question 2 ?)
    4. Anything really.

    here is som Photos of mine View attachment 606050
    (The way i purchased it, I Will Change to a dark leather strap) View attachment 606051
    Thats all, i wish to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

    1. The differences are either production runs, or slight changes to the case design.
    2. Because it is similar to the Ranchero.
    3. See above.

    Hope this helps,

    I like it, perhaps too rough for some but i prefer a bit rough over re-dialed and polished beyond recognition

    Seachero seems appropriate. Looks especially fantastic with black dial

    . I like the bracelet but a BOR would look better than the chain.

    As far as straps go I bet that would look great on black leather or camel to match the lume! Great watch and enjoy!

    Here is my 2937 :)
    I actually prefer this over 2990 Ranchero as the indices are more elegant, and the case looks better with actual edges...
