Omega Seamaster 300 Ref.165.024 ‘Big Triangle’

This Omega Seamaster 300 Ref.165.024 has a particular look and feel about it, which embodies the passion of AWCo. And Therefore, we feel a sense of pride to have this watch on offer. The nickname ‘Big Triangle’ is very self-explanatory. The ‘Big Triangle’ was originally developed for the British Royal Navy. Knowing this, gives it a very cool military feeling, especially in combination with the patina sword hands and hour markers!

The dial of this particular ‘Big Triangle’ is in excellent condition and it even features the highly demanded original flat link bracelet.
We invite you to come to Reestraat 3 in Amsterdam to see this watch. We are confident that you will understand our passion for these kinds of watches.

Backstory

The Omega Seamaster was introduced in 1948 and is, as such, the longest continuously running line within Omega’s catalogue. While these early Seamasters might look like dress-watches by today’s standards, their unique selling point was the use of an O-ring gasket between the case and the screw-in caseback. This development, taken from Submarine innovation during WWII, provided the watches with waterproofing that is anything but dressy. A major upgrade over older lead and shellac alternatives.

In 1955, a Seamaster was taken to a record depth of 62,5 meters by diver Gordon McLean, off the coast of Australia. Note that this is still before it took on the archetypal form-factor of a dive watch in 1957, with Ref. CK2913. Since then, models with and without divetime bezels have co-existed within the Omega Seamaster collection.

1950’s And 1960’s non-divetime-bezel Seamasters offer amazing value within today’s vintage market. Despite their modest diameter, they tend to have great wrist presence due to sporty, beefy cases. Countless variations exist, from rare curtain-dial double-signed Seamasters to fancy lugs and cross-hair dials. Great finishing and quality movements ensure these are still awesome everyday watches today. Since they were produced in relatively large numbers, a good example does not break the bank like some technically and historically lesser watches do.

The vintage diving Seamasters, such as the Ref. CK2913, Milspec Seamaster 300 or the famous PloProf, have become highly sought-after and collectible.

It is impossible to write about the Omega Seamaster without mentioning James Bond. When Pierce Brosnan took on the role of British super spy in 1995’s Goldeneye, a tricked-out quartz Seamaster diver was on his wrist. Different Seamasters have featured in all Bond-franchise films since. There was even a sly dig at Omega’s biggest rivals in Casino Royale when a James Bond/Vesper Lynd conversation went: “Rolex?” “Omega.” “Beautiful!”  Oh snap!

The Omega Seamaster collection has everything you could want from a watch. The history, the significance, the quality and the sheer variety. From simpler versions that present massive value, to highly collectible and extremely rare examples. A cool, understated look with an adventurous undertone. We love them!
