Hello

Wonder if you could shed any light on this little fella; 60s (possibly 50s) vintage seamaster gold plated. Seller told me it was owned by his father from new since at least the 60s. Strap appears to be junk ( will replace with black croc omega deployment from same era) closest match I can get is from a 1962 brochure but this one doesn't have the shadow lines on the face. Think its a 552.

Owner not familiar with watches and reluctant to remove back ( probably best).

I don't think its a redial but the crown looks odd to me ; possible its been replaced with an 80s one at some point.

Plan on servicing this myself as a learning exercise.

Looks a lot like a 165.0013 from the early 60's

Nice watch and the dial looks original. The crown is an Omega crown, but not original to the watch. This style of crown was found on Seamasters from the late 1940- 1950's

thanks

Ah great news, thanks for the info on the crown. Replacements of the correct vintage seem plentiful on the bay . Ideally I'd like to put it back as close to the original without replating or anything drastic.

black croc strap with a gold omega buckle may be a closer match than a deployment clasp I suspect.

looking forwards to sprucing it up.
