    One for the experts
    Has anyone come across a date at six 1950s Omega Seamaster with this movement I believed that
    They were powered by either 353 or 355 movements
    Or is this something of a rarity
    Sorry no photo

    501 is a no date movement, period.

    I wondered about the title too, then I read the OP and see its about a bumper.

    Thanks for the posts on this one as has been said the 501 is a non bumper movement
    And I would expect to find it in an Omega Seamaster with rhe date at the three position
    Or more likely a mid to late 50s no date seamaster
