    Take a look at my Omega Seamaster Textured Dialed 1961 watch

    Hi guys!
    I am a happy owner of this watch, I really enjoy wearing it. It has a 35mm case, a rare, spotless textured dial, nice hands, still have some orange ink on it! Please look at my case, the seller said it has never been polished, and its colour is like some factory metal, not that typical mirror polished stuff and it has very nice, sharp edges at the lugs. The glas has some scratches too, but tooth paste did not work for me. As u look at the movement, u can see a screw missing, am I right? And there is no O-ring at the caseback, it should be, right?

    greets

    I really like your enthusiasm about your neat old Omega. Your judgement is good. A person of good taste it seems. I have the same. The movements are nicely made and finished. Similar dial but mine was so diseased I cleared off the finish leaving only the metal Omega .

    the missing screw on the movement seems to be one that holds it in the case

    Thank you for the response! I still havent decide that I wanna polish it or not, it has some tiny scratches on the case, but not that bad, I am afraid that I loose the sharp edges, that makes this watch special. Most of these Omegas are polished 100 times, and every edges are rounded.

    You chose a great watch. Omega nailed this model in size and wearability. It looks like a great original dial.

    My '61 Omega is a front loader, and has had the dial painted. It is a great watch to wear. I don't wear it to work, and try to wear in only when I am having a "me" day which usually includes very good beer, cigars, and red meat. I found a '61 ad to go with it.

    thats a nice watch too, i really like the gold seamasters. i wear mine every day except weekends, i dont know if it is too much of use, but i love it, and have 2 more watches too, but i am bored of them, one I have for 8 years (jacques lemans titanium crono) and wore almost every day, and another roamer quarz, gold looking, square shaped, which is not too interesting to me..

    i m also a big fan of these old ads, u can see how much marketing has been improved, sooo in the old days the ads were simplier.

    If you do polish it go lightly on it. You might want to try Brasso at home first before sending it off to get it done by a watchmaker.
