These Omega divers are the perfect size at 37.5mm and are the ideal travel companion or weekend watch.
The blue accents and patina on the bi-directional bezel and pearl are sublime and match the dial patina nicely. An the lighter constrasting blue seconds and white pencil hands provide a good visibility on the wrist.
The icing on the cake is the original 1168 oyster style bracelet with short endlinks and it has its very rare original Admiraute box which are normall missing as they were quite fragile.
The condition of this watch is one of the best we have seen and even more uncommon being a purpose tool watch.
