One day last week when I was doing my daily Omega Seamaster search on ebay , for one cheap enough to afford but yet looks salvageable, this watch came up. It was 100 dollars buy it now and I debated whether or not to buy it for several painful minutes. It looked like it had some dial damage and dirt on the inside of crystal and it did not work. Well I got it today and just finished cleaning it up and it came out good! most of the dirt came off. I can see at one time it must have gotten a small amount of water through the crown because the stem was rusty. I put new seal in the crown and hope it will be good now. The dead battery in it was a 1.55 and I replaced it with a 1.50 battery in an adapter and its running great since this morning actually and keeping time just about 1-2 seconds slow. I have a new battery on its way just in case. Been wanting a Seamaster for so long and now that I have on it will be on my wrist a lot.
First picture is what it looked like when I got it.
