Continuing to rationalize my collection by selling this 1966 Stainless Steel ref 165.002 purchased just under 3 years ago from a very well-regarded OF member and frequent seller. This was the first vintage Omega (and first REAL vintage watch) I purchased after over a year of daydreaming about a vintage Omega and have really enjoyed it. The dial on this watch is in exceptional condition and it looks really clean on the wrist. That said, now that I've picked up a minty Connie 168.005 and Longines 9001, this watch is getting essentially no wrist time, so I figure it's time to find this watch a new home.
I'm requesting $700 OBRO via Paypal (I will incur the 3% processing fee), shipping included (CONUS only). Happy to accept reasonable offers. Watch is located in SF, willing to meet face to face if local. Return accepted only if watch is not as represented.
Some details on the watch below:
Movement: Immaculate cal 550
Case: Unpolished; 34.5mm excluding crown x 40.8mm
Crystal: New generic replacement crystal
Service history: Unknown when purchased and has not been while in my possession, but still keeps great time
Strap: 18mm matte black alligator strap, pictured on watch
First 6 photos are mine to show that the watch is materially still in the same condition as when I purchased it. Remaining pictures are from the original listing since they're much higher quality (posted with original seller's permission, of course)
Thanks OF and Mods for the space
