Vintage seamaster gold plated
vintage seamaster gold plated
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.
