    Such a clean, nearly wordless dial! I wish Omega did this more often. Tell us more?

    Well, I think the model is 14390-62-SC.

    Serial number is 19 million, so appears to be from '62. Houses a cal.286.

    I love these alpha hands, and the orange lume is really cool. Applied logo is a nice touch too .

    The dial is very intricate, a linen pattern that looks like cloth. It's one of those dials that gets more interesting the closer you look at it.

    A very enjoyable little piece.

    beautiful simplicity here, too. The hands and 'Seamaster 30' appear to be the only difference from Joel's.

    Do you have the reference #? Joel's is 19 million... since case was a '62 manufacture, maybe it's slightly later?

    Linen dials are my favourite they catch the light like no other dial.

    They look almost identical other than hands and Seamaster text.

    Uh, yeah, that's stating it in a slightly different way...

    Dude, I know you're trying to appreciate what you already have, and yes, it's beautiful, but OMG, do people here know?

    Mine is a 14390-62-SC.

    The seamaster is a 135.003-62 SC

    ..unless you meant the movement number of tdn-dk's seamaster..?

    Just out of curiosity, would these alpha hands be the same as the ones for a 2914-4 or do they differ in any way?
