Why We Love It

 

This is the Seamaster that James Bond would have worn, had he worn an Omega in the 1960s.

This iconic diver is instantly recognizable for its distinctive matte black dial with large luminous plots, oversized plongeur 'sword' handset, bi-directionally rotating acrylic timing bezel, and 41mm twisted lug case design. Not only is it a pillar of sports watch design that has lent itself to be the framework for many a subsequent revival, but it is also one of the best value propositions in vintage diving watches - particularly when compared to its Rolex counterparts!

This particular example, a no-date Reference 165.024, is a remarkably well preserved examples with an untouched case and dial and beautiful patination throughout. It also comes with an Extract From The Archives from the Omega Museum, confirming production and subsequent delivery to Hong Kong in May of 1969.

The SM300 has been the mainstay of Omega's diving line for decades. There are many like it, but this one could be yours.

 

The Story

In the mid-1960s Omega released the second generation of Seamaster 300—the 165.024.

With the Reference 165.024, Omega made changes that truly brought home the fact that this was an entirely new watch than its predecessor. The dial took on a new look, with thicker hour markers than the thin, elongated triangles that typified the first Seamaster, the Reference CK2913. The hands were changed as well: because the broad arrow hands of the previous versions proved hard to read underwater, Omega switched to sword or plongeur hands.

But the most salient feature of this new reference of Seamaster was the case. At 41mm, it was larger than the CK2913’s. Moreover, the silhouette changed completely. Instead of straight lugs, the Reference 165.024 featured an asymmetrical case with faceted lugs. The bezel of the Reference 165.024 was enlarged, and was available in several different variations, all of these featured luminescent material layered inside acrylic.
