Beautiful Omega Seamaster 300m Professional, in very nice condition.
It is model ref 196.1503, the first incarnation of the iconic wavy dial with blue bezel combination, which was launched by Omega in 1993, a favourite of the Omega range ever since.
This particular watch is dated 1993 from its serial number.
It is powered by the Omega Calibre 1538, a high grade quartz movement with an interesting jumping hour hand, similar to a GMT watch (the hour hand can be adjusted without stopping the watch and disturbing the seconds / minute hands, so great for change of time zone)

The watch has just been fully serviced, which included a full stripdown and ultrasonic clean of the movement, all gaskets replaced, and the helium valve replaced. New quality Swiss made battery fitted, and watch pressure test. Photos taken during the service are available upon request.

A fully serviced watch, supplied as a full set, with original box and papers, making it one of the best example you are likely to find on the market.

Detailed Condition report:
This watch is very nice condition.
The case and bracelet are in very good condition.
Light marks on the bezel insert.
The bezel rotates and clicks as it should, and aligns correctly with the 12 o' clock marker.
There is the tiniest mark on the sapphire crystal, hardly visible without magnification. It is highlighted on one of the photos.
Excellent timekeeping, as you would expect after a service.
The bracelet is currently sized for a 7.5” wrist approximately.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
