    CASE: Classic 2-piece screw back all-steel case measures an elegant 34mm wide not including the crown x 40mm long and “wears big” as they say due to the large dial face. There are minor marks throughout consistent with years of wear and a few scratches but no heavy dings. The lugs show minimal if any polish that I can detect and the same goes for the sides -- Excellent vintage condition.

    CASEBACK: The outer caseback is one of the few things I can’t rave about on this superb Seamaster, as it appears the original owner wore the watch on a NATO strap (!) and so that has left its pattern embossed in the steel over time. A little judicious polishing might even that out but I’ll leave that to the next owner. That and some other marks mean the back is in merely Good to Very Good cosmetic condition. But otherwise the engraved Hippocampus in the center is quite sharp and again I don't really see any signs of previous polish. Inside we find the correct reference number 135.011 and the other appropriate period nomenclature present including the case maker’s symbol, which I believe represents EPSA of compressor case fame.

    DIAL & HANDS: Absolutely beautiful and Near Mint condition original factory-printed non-luminous satin silver dial featuring hand-riveted pointed bar markers with black inlay and applied Omega logo. All original black dial text and minute ticks are crisp and legible. I rate this wonderful dial as Near Mint because there are just a few very small signs of age to the silver sunburst finish that can be seen with a powerful loupe. Of course, on the wrist it registers as essentially flawless. The matching non-luminous stick hands also have black inlay and perhaps show their age a bit more with just a touch of visible oxidation bringing their condition down to Excellent+. Simply put, this Seamaster 600 has a timelessly elegant dial layout that makes it pure class on the wrist.

    CROWN: Knurled signed Omega steel winding crown is Near Mint. Unlike those on a lot of other dress models it’s nice and chunky and easy to grip. The crown winds and pulls out to set the time as it should.

    CRYSTAL: Domed acrylic crystal with the Omega symbol the middle has only minor marks and is quite clear and chip free, easily Excellent condition.

    MOVEMENT: Powering this vintage Seamaster 600 is Omega's high grade in-house 17-Jewel caliber 601 manual wind movement with 2 positional adjustments. The movement serial number of 22 million dates the watch to circa 1965. While the service history is unknown to me, the movement looks very bright and is running strong and keeping excellent time. It is guaranteed to be working properly at the time of shipment.

    STRAP: This handsome SM 600 comes on a lightly used unpadded dark blue Hirsch alligator strap with generic steel buckle. This watch has a lug width of 18mm.

    As a matter of policy, I make NO guarantees for the water resistance of this watch in any way, shape or form.

    This great Vintage Omega Seamaster 600 is offered with a 3-day inspection period from the date of receipt and may be returned for a full refund less any shipping costs incurred by the buyer. This refund is unconditional and once I get the watch back in exactly the same condition as it was sent to you, your money will be refunded. Of course, once the 3 days are over the sale will be considered FINAL.

    Thanks for looking,
