This present example remains in unrestored and very well taken care of condition.
The matte black dial with large tritium luminous hour markers shows a subtle spotted patina across. Stunning ‘sword’ hands with the same desirable yellowish aged tritium lume.
The dial signature and writing has turned into an attractive smokey white colour.
Note that the centre of the dial shows a hardly visible spot/mark.
The large uni-directional bakelite bezel remains in very good condition without any major cracks or discolorations.
Original ‘naiad’ Omega crown with large gasket for keeping out water (noticeable while winding the watch).
The strong and heavy case looks to be unpolished, some normal signs of wear but nothing unusual.
Case back writing and image of the Omega Hippocampus still clearly legible.
The automatic Caliber 552 movement is clean and runs with fine accuracy.
Please note that the case back received a new gasket (not present in the pictures).
The watch is accompanied by the Extract from the Archives indicating this watch was delivered to Argentine back in August, 1967.
