Seamaster 166.010 from 1966 on omega beads of rice.

The 60's and 70's were a peak time for Omega, in my opinion.

Wow, that’s stunning Mike.

You’re not the only one that loves these.

Beautiful! How do you determine the year in which it was made?

Gorgeous, one of my favorite Omegas ever. I'd love to see Omega bring this back in a slightly more modern size.

Online serial number database for Omega watches. It's pretty extensive.

I agree -and so is Thomas in the article - how cool would a 37ish in that model be?!?

But, Mikes is pretty bomb! I'd love to try it on.

love it. one of the biggest negatives (to me) of my grandfather's deville is that it's a gold watch. wish it was steel so i could find a BOR to go on it. but even if i could find a gold BOR, i wouldn't wear that much gold.

I actually like it. Made me google… they aren’t priced too bad. I like affordable vintage omega.
