    Seamaster 300 with a difference :D

    I had a 565 movement and Seamaster dial and hands which I had planned to make into a Seamaster 300 but I was too late to buy a case before Omega practically doubled their price. So while looking for a suitable replacement for the last few months, I came across a 166.073 case in very good condition (often called Seamaster 120 Deep Blue). I've always found the dial of this model a bit fussy but it has a nice big case which fits the 565 movement. The result is what you see here, the bezel is actually dark blue as is the strap :thumbsup:

    It should make a nice change from my 552 Seamaster 300

    Great looking project! I've been sitting in the same boat searching for a case that seems to be going up and up in price.

    Thanks. I couldnt justify to myself spending £1000+ on a SM300 case and the 166.073 case makes a nice change from the SM300 in its shape, slightly bigger and 22mm lug width. It actually uses all the same parts as the SM300 (crown, crystal, gaskets) but was a bit of a leap of faith that the dial would work well in the case.
    Very happy with the result :)
