What We Fancy

Launched in 1957 simultaneously with the Railmaster and the Speedmaster, the Seamaster 300 era begins with the series CK 2913. In 1964, the reference we have here is introduced, the 165.014, the last model with a “straight lugs” case making it very rare and highly collectible to this day. The example we have here is in excellent original condition and comes accompanied by an Extract from the Archives dating it to March 17th, 1964.

Box & Papers: No box or papers. Extract from the Archives included.

Condition: This watch is in overall great original condition. The dial is fantastic with no major blemishes or defects of any kind. There is some patina that has developed. The original tritium lume has aged beautifully turning to an orange/ brown. The case has been lightly polished in the past but retains strong lugs with its bevels still visible. There are no major scratches or dents but smaller superficial scratches can be seen. The original bakelite bezel has not been refinished, something that is often done to these models due to their delicate nature/ aging. That can be done if requested by the buyer. The movement has been serviced and keeps accurate time when tested on the machine.
