Good to see this very good condition one. My old 600 here bought cheaply because of moldy dial. Now know how dial was. I wiped remnants of dial markings off with acetone. Seems to be a good 600 otherwise. Nice band. How best way to have a good dial; new one, rework, from where? Or leave this $40. junk sale well used runner original?

Movement on yours ArtB shows no signs of any rust on the SS parts which is usually the case when dials have degraded because of moisture. Worth using the OP original pics to get a similar refinished dial from Kirk Rich in California. Having paid only 40 dollars, the cost of a refinished dial would still put your investment under market value.

Cheers

That is one sharp Seamaster. Is it a 136.020?

Movement is a joy to view. The whole 600 series of calibres (600 - 613) were excellent handwinds.

Thanks Desmond, this is my first 600 series/ hand wound! Everything on this, except new strap, is original and really clean, lovin' it. No, its a 136.011

THANKS for a best choice. The odd surface finish left on dial is tolerable to me with the Omega mark and number indicators good. Little surprised at cost. Omega replacements more expensive? This goiod one cost $350. including fine service job. Cheap one from junk store $26. running fine. Advantage for Omega w.w. buyers is they appear at all kinds of sales places.
