    Nice pickup. Very pretty watch. I would take it in somewhere to have it looked over, tested, and serviced.

    nice pick-up congrats! TBH from your pic I can't exactly tell if your dial is black or dark blue but you bezel is blue.

    Howdy all. I just recieved my very first Omega in the mail today, and I am stoked. I also have some questions for you experts out there, but first I'll share my watch. Its a Seamaster 300 Chronometer, and I think its a beautiful example. It's got some age to it, but it is in amazing condition. Beautiful patina on the bezel and the lume has aged nicely as well in my opinion. The only "flaw" I can see is a bit of a mark on one hand, but it's nearly impossible to see. Also came with box and papers. Absolutely love it. And sorry about the crummy pics.

    Now, I bought it from a long time wus user with good feedback. He also included the receipt from a recent service from a reputable shop. But I'm having trouble understanding the serial number. According to the warranty card, the serial number is in the 49 million range. The number on the lug appears to be the same, but I need to get a magnifying glass to really read it. I really dont doubt the authenticity given the seller and the even aging it shows (not to mention the service slip), but from what i can find, that serial number is from 1986, and the model wasn't around then. The warranty card is dated 1995. Help me out folks! What am I missing?!

    Also, should I be concerned about swimming with a watch that old? It's not vintage, but it isnt new either. And should I be concerned with the possibility of lume coming off? Not much i can do if it does, I'm just wondering if I need to baby this watch or really wear it. It's the oldest watch in my collection.

    So glad to have it, but I'd like to understand it a little more!

    Thanks 👍
    That was my first Omega, still looks great-barely left my wrist for seventeen years.
