    Hi All

    I found a Seamaster 60, 166.062, 37mm, Cal. 565 from 1969.
    In my opinion a nice looking watch, and one that you don't see too often.
    Due to this fact I was not able to find many informations on the Seamaster 60.
    In my opinion the watch looks good and nice (back polished, bracelet not from Omega, but the rest seems to be in the original state), but I would be happy to have the opinion of the experts in OF, not that I miss something obviously wrong with this watch ;).

    Two Points were I was a bit unsure:
    1) You can find online examples with 60 or without 60 on the dial. I guess both are genuine.
    2) Crown seems big. But as well here; you can find online examples with a big Crown or a smaller one.

    As well, what is a fair value for such a watch in this condition? (Don't want to overpay).

    Thx!

    It’s known as the “big crown” I guessing the small crowns are replacements

    You sure the dial is black and not dark blue?

    Actually both are dark blue (dial & bezel). A bit difficult to see on the pictures

    Seller asking around 2200 USD for the dark blue one. Is that rather expense or a fair price for such a watch?

    IMO, I would expect a perfect example with original steel bracelet for that price.
    Bezel is damaged or worn, case back should be sun brushed and the movement does not look like it has been serviced.
