    Question Looking for information on this vintage Omega

    Hi Everyone! I'm having a bit of a problem finding information on this Omega. It was given to my Grandfather after 42 years at Standard Oil/Amoco (BP now). He gave it to me before he passed away and I just wanted to find out some information about the watch itself. Monetary value means nothing to me as this is very sentimental. In looking at the vintage Omega page, it states that it is a Seamaster. The watch face does not say Seamaster on it like the one on the site does. Here are some pictures for reference (sorry, these were taken from my phone):

    The case back says 166 0202, so I searched for 166.0202 on the Omega site. It came back with:

    My concern is that it is not a screw- in Case back, it just pops off. Also, as stated earlier, it does not say Seamaster on the face. I'm not sure exactly what this is, but was hoping anyone could share some thoughts.
