I recently bought a restored "vintage" Omega Seamaster on eBay, and it arrived today.

Turns out (according to some Omega fan forums) it was a pretty good deal. What I like about it is this - it's elegant, a definite dress watch, minimal in design, understated, and just so happens to have one of the best mechanical calibres inside that has ever been made. And it was cheap (relative: I could have bought almost six of these watches for the price I paid for the new Omega Seamaster Professional Chronograph).

The band that the watch arrived on wasn't the right one, but the vendor is solving that toot suite. In the meantime, I went out to a fine watch shop today, and picked up the band that's on the watch in the photos. What's scary is that band is worth more than most watches the average person buys.

Here's some more photos.

Seamster, 1961 Style.
This watch is a little under 10 years OLDER than I am.

Seahorse, all proud and stuff.
The face is black? No it's gray! No, it's black!
Actually, the face is a very dark gray, with white gold markings and arms.
