This all steel vintage Omega Seamaster automatic is our most sought after watch model. Finding a nice clean one gives us great pleasure to be able to offer to our customers. It dates from ca 1968, features movement caliber 565 with 24 jewels, and has serial number 27254209. Inside the case we find the stampCB. CB is short for the case maker “La Centrale Boîtes of Bien”. The Omega model reference is 166.002.
Caliber 565 from Omega is similar to the chronometer certified automatic 564 movement that sits in Constellation models. It has the quickset date which changes by “pumping” the crown in and out. The “lume” on this watch is fully intact on both dial and hands, and the original crown and crystal are correctly labelled with the Omega logo. The diameter is 34,5mm. This particular watch was fully serviced in April 2020, which gave the following test results: Rate: 22,00 s/d, Beat = 0,74ms, Amplitude = 277,7 degrees (tested in 5 positions).
