Omega Seamaster 30 Ref. 135.007 -63 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1964
A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch
Omega introduced the Seamaster 30 in 1962. This example of the reference has an unusual silvered dial with light, vertical ribbing. Cased in stainless steel, the model has a polished chamfered bezel and faceted lugs. The ’30’ refers to the watch’s movement which is from Omega’s 30 series calibres – these movements had a diameter of 30mm and had gained a reputation for accuracy and reliability. By co-incidence, the Seamaster 30 was also originally water-resistant to 30 metres which has led to much confusion over the derivation of the name. The steel case has not been polished during servicing and there are some small nicks, light scuffs and scratches from wear.
