    Omega seamaster cal 565

    Hi Guys,

    Tried looking on the omega ref number 166.002 for a seamaster steel, but found no entry in relation to the below:

    Vintage Omega Automatic Seamaster Cal 565 | eBay

    What do you guys think?

    Have a look in the database under 162.0002 and you'll get a hit.

    It's tidy, but you will need to know whether the scuffing on the rotor and case back was addressed. Otherwise you will have a rotor/rotor post/rotor bearing problem.

    Cheers

    Re: Omega seamaster cal 565

    heres what I see (posted b4 my above post to clarify the order):

    A decent enough 60s SM with the correct movement and a nice original dial. The crown I am not positive about-it may be okay but that style could be orig. or not-but its not a big deal. The only concern I have is the discoloration I see on the upper half of the rotor. It may be absolutely nothing or it could be from wear from hitting case. But the colour of the different parts-the train, the bridge and rotor seem to generally match in tone and finish. At the price it is now I think you'll have some stiff competition from others. I wouldn't go higher then $400 however. I think your okay with this one. (although their are database geeks that do know a good bit about the ref. #s which AFAIC-with Omega- are a bit confusing and misleading at times- except with some very special old Omegas where the #'s have to be precise for collectors of these rare models. ( don't consider this SM rare) This caseback has clean looking coveted hippocampus which is another big plus.good luck

    Hah! As if from the mists of time- pretty much the ONLY WUS member I can say can rarely be disputed on Omega beats my post by a minute! I thought I would offer just some solid but not-to-extensive advice until others chimed in**. But just in case you doralamer don't know- this 'other' is one of the foremost experts in world on Constellations and maybe vintage Omega as well. You can not get any better advice from my 8 years on WUS building a vintage Omega collection. Monodic has helped me many times in the past.

    &
    *Desmnd...I just mentioned you in a vintage connie post the other day or one that got a bit contentious -something about a few of the newer constant 'expert' members (at least 1-2 anyway) here on vintage have a much more -let's say, 'condescending ' way of dispensing their knowledge and that the days when you were here[and @ omega] regularly were missed. best wishes

    ** and I'm glad I picked up on the rotor colour issue as it proves that I have picked up much knowledge from my time spent here. I never would have picked up on that before I came here-and I'd already been collecting for many years before.

    ***Iknow, I am 'gushing' a bit about wus but hey! Its true

    Thanks guys! I have been looking around for a bit, given that I am not a keen fan of current haute horlogerie, and instead is really drawn to the mechanisms of clean vintage watches. A good seamaster will definitely get me going.

    Nice, and the 565 and it's chronometer rated sister the 564 are one of the finest Omega movements in my opinion, the pull/push quick set date is awesome.
