    Hi ΩF

    For sale comes a beautiful all original Radial Seamaster Chronograph.

    You might have noticed several sales lately - I am refocusing my collection and getting back to what I like (and wear) most. I bought every (different) cal 321 powered Radial Seamaster to perform the 145.006 / 145.016 Seamaster Chronograph Research. Now this variation is not the one I wear most (I already sold the same 861 powered version here, some months ago) so it's ready to find a new home.

    More information about the watch itself here : https://omegaforums.net/threads/145-006-145-016-seamaster-chronograph-research-thread.77145/

    I am uploading high-res photographs, untouched, unbalanced, unedited. If you would like to see anything else, please ask.

    The dial has a wonderful patina. Applied logo - a rare feature on Radial Seamaster dials. Orange hand adds a nice color touch. Ω logo well visible on the crystal.

    The pushers and crown are original.

    The case is a new old stock case I could source from my watchmaker's old stock. Only seldom worn since then.

    The caseback is clean and original to the watch.

    The strap from Bandrbands works quite well with the watch imo. If you don't like, we can discuss other options. Omega stainless steel buckle is fitted.

    The movement was serviced by Romain from Atelier d'Horlogerie 13 in June 2018. Will include the replaced mainspring into the sale. I want this to be a worry-free purchase for you, hence I will cover this watch with a mechanical warranty till end of June 2020.

    Note : it is a 50yrs old watch and its water resistance wasn't tested and isn't guaranteed.

    What you see is what you get.

    Pros :

    - Everything is coherent and original
    - Movement clean, recently serviced and I am sure good for a while
    - Correct steel bracelet 1116/548, now included in this sale
    - Mechanical warranty till end of June 2020

    Cons :

    - Maybe that case looks to new compared to a patina'd dial but I like it better so rather than in a round polished-to-death case.

    Terms and conditions : 4500 USD / 4300 CHF / 4100 EURO wired directly to my bank account for the watch as pictured + 1116/548 bracelet + Box and Extract from the Omega Archives.

    I will include fully insured shipping to wherever Fedex can deliver.
    The watch and I are in Switzerland. If you happen to be in Switzerland, face to face always welcome : I value meeting people.

    Returns are accepted only if grossly misrepresented. You will get what you see in these pictures which are of a decent quality, unedited and high resolution, so I don't believe there is any chance of misrepresentation. Feel free to ask for special details or angles you want to see better, prior buying.

    Thanks ΩF for the space :thumbsup:

    How does that work? I must use that on the wife: “Sorry honey, I can’t sell this because I got another one coming”. Man... it is a whole new world opening to me :D:D

    It happens that she saw the incoming and said "Now that I see them aside, you can't sell that 145.006. No way !" - I executed ::rimshot::

    Well, she’s a beauty, congratulations on getting to keep such a fine specimen (BTW I was referring to the watch, but I guess it applies both ways ;))

    Yesterday I've bought a vintage watch and it was a totally unexpected opportunity I just couldn't ignore. ::facepalm1::

    You know the drill, can't be only buying, too many watches blah blah one shall go - this one can go. The 321 Seamaster is back for sale.

    You are killing me! Where's the money I squandered when I should have been saving for this?
