I recently pulled the trigger and purchased a vintage seamaster for my grandfather for the holidays. I started doing research the past couple months on vintage Omegas, as I wanted to get my grandfather a gift he would truly appreciate.
I ended up purchasing an early 1950s Seamaster with Omega 17 jewel cal.354 bumper automatic wind movement, a honeycomb dial, and a steel case with beefy lugs. The dial has been cleaned, but still retains that classic look.
As I only have several months research and appreciation under my belt, it would be fantastic if the community could give their thoughts, opinions, recommendations, and analysis of the piece based on the pictures below (whether good or bad).
I would like to present the gift whilst having an broadened perspective.
