The Omega Seamaster 300 is perhaps one of the most iconic and enduring watch models of all time. Alongside the Speedmaster and Railmaster, these models were first released by Omega in 1957 and is collectively known as the Trilogy. It was done as an effort by Omega to get into the tool watch game, as more an more people were leading active lifestyles.
This version is an early straight lug example and it is the third and final iteration of this generation. While most people would associate the Seamaster 300 with its later lyre lug chunky case, this is where it all started. Early Seamaster 300’s are much rarer and feature a smaller 39mm case with a thin bakelite bezel. Furthermore, the dials were much more subtle in their details and this example being a transitional early 165.014, features the iconic small arrow hands which were later transitioned to less attractive baton hands.
While this example is in fair condition, it is nevertheless a rare piece and priced accordingly. The Seamaster 300 will always be a collectable watch with its rich history, great presence on the wrist and overall good looks.
