Hi guys!

I'm not really sure if this is the right place to post this question, if not, moderators please move me to the right forum if thats ok?

I'm not familiar much with Vintage Omega Seamasters, being more of a speedmaster fan, but about a week ago, I walked into a shop in __ (to be revealed!) to purchase a vintage Omega Seamaster 300 "Big Triangle" cal 565, and saw what looked like an absolutely beautiful Seamaster 300 (4th? iteration). I was quite fascinated by the condition, and went home to do some research. After several visits to the most popular "how to buy a Vintage Omega Seamaster 300" sites, I decided to make the purchase.

So I now humbly submit the photos of my watch, for the community to pass verdict... is this a good buy? Or a franken/dud/fake that I should hang my head in shame for not being able to identify?

The proof lies before us! Some details

Omega Seamaster 300 "Big triangle"
Ref 166.024
Movement no 287xxxxx
Cal 565
All original case, crown, and bracelet

Note some photos show an accompanying Seamaster 300 ref CK 2913, I did not purchase that, but also considering it. Any opinion on that watch too?

Look forward (with trepidation) to the forum's verdict!

P.S. Warning, large pictures attached

I'm no expert but that looks very nice! If you got it for a good price you will be a happy man in the future

Both watches look alright to me. But can you please post a closeup picture of the dial of 165.024 (I want to see if it was relumed)? And a closeup picture of its caseback's inside (the font looks a little off, but it's probably the angle and light)?

FYI: the bezel insert on the 2913 doesn't look original and is probably aftermarket. But that's fine (the original bakelite bezel inserts didn't last long).
