OMEGA 60's Seamaster Black Mirror dial Cal.565
Introducing the Omega Seamaster Black Mirror Dial in the 1960s .
Waterproofing and dustproofing of wristwatches has long been a major issue, and with the outbreak of World War II, the demand for waterproofing functions in wristwatches increased rapidly.
At that time, Omega was supplying the British Army with a large number of watches equipped with round screw-back waterproof cases.
This waterproof case was the mainstream from that time, and it continued even after the war.
After the war, when Omega considered what kind of movement would be suitable for this waterproof case, it adopted an automatic movement to avoid the risk of water and dust entering the crown as much as possible.
Thus, in 1948 , the Seamaster was born as a waterproof self-winding wristwatch.
The “Kaiba” mark, which is a proof of the Seamaster, is engraved on the back cover of the screw back method on the round case, which has been the mainstream since that time.
At first glance, it's an orthodox Seamaster, but the big difference from other solids is that the dial is a black mirror dial.
As the name suggests, the dial reflects the light as it is like a mirror, and has a special luster. , gives a strong impact.
The decoration is a simple upright bar index and a pencil needle with skeleton processing.
The date window is also framed in silver, so the mirror dial and indexes shine equally when the light hits them, creating a design that feels elegant.
The equipped movement is Cal.565 , a self-winding model with 24 jewels.
It is the same type as Omega's flagship model "Constellation", the only difference is whether it is a chronometer specification with higher accuracy.
Because it is basically the same construction, it boasts very high accuracy and operability even if it is not a chronometer.
In addition, it is the first movement equipped with a date fast-forwarding device, and the calendar can be fast-forwarded by pulling the crown, making it a highly practical movement.
The size is length: 40,3mm , width: 36,7mm , thickness: 11,6mm .
The round case gives the impression that it is a little small, but because it has the unique thickness of the Seamaster, it does not feel unsatisfactory when worn, and it is a size that is easy to wear even for people with narrow wrists.
The condition is very good, including the case, dial, and movement.
It's in such good condition that you wouldn't think it was a watch from 60 years ago.
A Seamaster with a black mirror dial and a very rare dial.
It looks cool as it is, but if you change the belt to a military green nylon belt, you can enjoy the atmosphere of a military watch at once.
Not only is it excellent in rarity and design, but it is also highly practical, making it a truly versatile piece .
