Omega, Seamaster 300 – 166.024-67

This is a very interesting and quite rare 1967 Omega Seamaster 300 with reference 166.024-67 and Omega cal 565. The version with date indication is hardly seen. At the time of writing there’s not one offered at Chrono24, they’re all (12 pieces at the moment) reference 165.024 without date. As the icing on the...

Omega expands in Portuguese

Omega expands in Portuguese

On it’s main mission to outnumber Rolex in the world, Omega launches it’s website in Portuguese.

Omega, Seamaster Professional 300M

This Omega Seamaster Professional 300M, probably better known as the Omega Bond watch, has already now reached the status of a true classic.
