Just serviced this NOS gold watch found in the 1980s.Started this hobby by finding these NOS from the old watch shops. In the 1980s mechanical watches were not in trend and Quartz watches rule..

Just traded my Fortis moon phase for an OMEGA - Vintage Seamaster 120 Automatic Cal 565 Ref. 166.027 Circa 1960 with the faded"Ghost Bezel" w/ Patina. I have been very disciplined in keeping the quantities of the watches down and not adding any new unless some old one is out.
The Omega Seamaster line remains a perennial favorite amongst watch collectors, and this vintage Seamaster 120 is an excellent reminder of the brand's storied past and commitment to the exploration of our oceans. It was by chance that I came across this beauty and I am glad to be able to swap watches with fellow collector. This is the smaller brother of the Seamaster 300 and it was originally popular with snorkelers and skindivers. This particular Seamaster dates from the mid-1960s, and features the Omega Calibre 565 automatic winding movement. With serial nos 269,744,xxx the watch was dated 1968.
