    Im trying to identify my late fathers Seamaster bought for his 55th bday in 1985 .
    I was with him when he chose it in what would have been late 1984 early 1985 for his 55th from Mum in May 85 and was his daily for over 30 years .
    Its been suggested its a Greg Louganis 1984 Olympic edtn and now I know the serial no it matches 1984 numbered starting 47 but I cant locate any info on such a watch anymore thou did once find a description written on the net somewhere and it matched no pics thou .
    I cant seem to find it or any other info .
    The Omega vintage has a very similar one pictured under the calibre no a 1983 Mariner .
    How do I get the full serial no run to identify it ?
    Circled is where I used several photos zoomed it to obtain the 8 digit serial no .

    You left out the most important photo, the inside of the case back.

    You circled the serial number which will tell you the date within a year or so via an easy google.

    The model number is on the inside of the caseback. And the caliber of the movement is the 4 digit number 1430 I think.

    you can go to Omega's web site, navigate to the vintage database, and search for the model number.

    I tried there and no luck on the 1430 calibre no there is one very similar round faced in a almost identical case wrong colors n band thou likely same mech due to the ultra slim design and shape
    The serial matches for 1984 being in the 4 mill 7000 range

    So you have a 396.1004 ( that’s the model number) from around 1984. That movement was used in many different models. There is some info if you search “Omega 396.1004 “

    What else is there to know? Note the Omega vintage database does not have all models in it.
