I have inherited my farhers Seamaster. Anyone know value and history of this model ?
I imagine that being your fathers watch it has a value which I could not put n to £££££.
We really need to see the movement and inner and outer caseback to give you info.
Located in the UK, per chance? That style dial is more common there than elsewhere, in my limited experience. It's a very pretty watch with a great story behind it.
Hello, and welcome to the forum! All of the information you need to help you learn more about your watch is contained inside it. You should take your watch to a local watchmaker in your area, preferably one who is skilled in repairing vintage watches. The watchmaker has the specialist tools required to open your watch without scratching or damaging it.
On the watch movement is a serial number that will help you date the year the movement was manufactured. On the inside caseback is a case reference number.
If you intend to wear your watch, ask your watchmaker to service the watch. They will clean the watch movement, lubricate the many moving parts, and adjust the timing so that it is accurate. You have a nice heirloom that is worth a little love and attention, and in return you will have a timepiece that will last decades with some routine maintenance.
So true ! I will contact my lokal warchmaker and get it cleaned and valued for insurance . For me it is priceless.
Norwegian actually. My father was a chief engineer on oiltankers, so he might have purchased it abroad.
2937 maybe? Probably hands have been replaced (I'd think they'd have lume). Probably powered by a 30mm movement. Maybe a caliber 267?
A classic. Love the way the hands play off the numerals.
Interesting and nice piece
