Omega Seamaster 166.0174 Automatic - 1975
Omega Seamaster 166.0174
A hidden gem amongst vintage Omega, the 166.0174 is a Seamaster that feels like it could have been produced in the last 20 years. Bridging the gap between classic Seamasters and more avante garde mid-century design principles, it features a 36.5mm steel case that wears quite large for its size given the silver dial combined with the thin bezel, and integrated lug design.
The dial is a beautiful sunray silver with applied indices. The finish is spectacular, with only very light spotting present. The plots have been lumed, as have the hands which are assumed to be service replacements other than the seconds hand which looks to be original.
Crystal is clean, and does not show the Omega symbol.
Bracelet is a 1186/215 with 15 links, and will suit roughly an 8in wrist. Shows some stretch, but very good for its age. Endlinks are a little bent as they're hollow.
Movement is the cal.1022 and was serviced in 2019 by an independent watchmaker in Australia. Keeping time at around +11 seconds per day at time of writing at 172 degrees of amplitude.
Comes with Watch Vault cleaning cloth and Watch Vault Travel Case. No box or papers.
