OMEGA SEAMASTER 300 REF. 165.024-64
Fine and rare stainless steel self-winding diver’s wristwatch with black dial.
Simultaneously launched with the Railmaster and the Speedmaster, the Seamaster 300 saga began in 1957 with the CK 2913 series, equipped with the 501 calibre.
It displayed on its black dial contrasting indexes and the emblematic broad arrow hand, which became part of the manufacture’s heritage.
In 1960, the CK 2913 was replaced by the CK 14755, whose second hand took its final shape common to the classic Speedmaster and Seamaster, and the arrow hand was no longer the hour hand but the minute one.
In 1966, Omega entered into discussions with the British Ministry to define the specifications for a diver’s watch for military use.
The model presented here is a Seamaster 300, reference 165.024-64 from 1966.
It has a stainless steel round case of 42 mm diameter with a 60-minute graduated bezel for calculating dive and decompression times. Black dial with luminescent painted rectangular indexes. Luminescent candle hands and central second hand. Self-winding mechanical movement, caliber 552.
This is a magnificent, mythical and iconic diver’s watch, equipping many amateur and professional divers in their underwater missions.
