My first post in this very interesting forum.
I recently found this Seamaster at an auction on the Swedish island of Gotland. I've searched the Omega Vintage Watches Database but am not sure I have identified it correctly. I attach four photos which I thought could help.
Following the directions of the Database I have searched for both 2990 and 2996 on the inside of the back cover. Both bring up Ranchero models. When I search for "Seamaster" I find a few that are similar but not the same.
BUT, when I search for the number 284, which is on the second image and which I believe might be the caliber number (?) then I get this entry. Would this be the right one?
I realise this is not a special watch at all but I am just curious about it.
Thanks for any help
