Omega Seamaster 300 reference 165.024 with military heritage! This piece was supplied to the RAF in 1967, as can be found and described on the Extract of the Archives. Furthermore we can find the RAF logo and "W10" engraving on the caseback. This piece is supplied with a NATO of choice, as its the only option on a milspec with its "Fixed bars". This particular piece doesn't have the T (a tritium indication) on the dial but does feature the characteristic points in the tritium at the 6 and 12 o'clock. Also interesting on this piece is that it is not fit with a screw-down crown, making this early configuration even more rare. Approximately only 100 pieces were ever issued to the British army. An historically important piece in museum condition that looks so damn fine on the wrist.
Omega Seamaster 300The Omega Seamaster is the oldest Omega line in the current collection. It was intended as a durable yet elegant watch for active individuals who wanted a versatile wristwatch. The most beloved toolwatch within this line became the Omega Seamaster 300 with a water depth rating of 200m. It proved its abilities in submarines during the Second World War and was used to achieve he first diving-record back in 1955.Due to the exceptional quality of the Omega Seamaster 300, it has been a popular choice among many of the world most famous explorers and divers. Most notably the use of Jacques Cousteau's team during its “Precontinent II” experiments in the Red Sea in the summer of 1963. It would also go on to be the watch of choice for military divers including the British Special Bot Service.Although this dive watch was specifically designed for professionals and underwater sports lovers alike, it soon enjoyed a wider fan-base. The strong masculine and rugged looks didn’t go unnoticed back then and it still is a real statement on the wrist. A watch with so much character.
