    Hi,
    My Father gave me this Omega watch in the 70's when he purchased a new watch. I cant imagine its very expensive considering he gave it to a 10 year old. Any idea what model this is or value? I have searched the internet and found nothing.

    It’s really impossible to tell you anything without seeing pictures of the movement and the inside of the caseback. All identifying information can be found there.

    Take the watch to a watchmaker and bring a camera.

    One hint is the dial, very 1950’s.

    Nice watch and a great heirloom, the waffle dial is very stylish. Needs a little attention, but I'm sure it will clean up nicely. I have definitely seen this reference before but can't recall the number at the moment. As noted above, if you have it opened, the information will be readily available inside. Without trying to narrow it down very finely, I'll just say that the value is in the $500-$1000 range depending on many variables. If you are selling, assume the low end. Insurance, use the high end.

    My guess would be reference 2802, cal. 471, ca. mid-50s:

    Not all of them said “Seamaster” on the dial, although they all were. The structured dial is a nice bonus. ~500$ is about the top end of what I could see this fetch in a sale by an unknown user.
