I am in the market for a vintage (70s to 80s) Seamaster and quite like the old cases and bracelets. I've found a good deal on this watch (I think ref 166.0216) off the bay and it has been confirmed by the seller that the dial has been overhauled, polished, repainted for aesthetics. I'm not hugely concerned over this as it has been clearly stated and I wanted a second watch for daily wear to give my vintage Rolex Datejust some rest.
I've attached some pics and would appreciate your feedback on how accurate everything looks. Please let me know. FWIW the purchase is in the ~$500 range. I'd be happy to pay ~$700 - 800 for something super authentic if I could find it.
All thoughts are greatly appreciated.
