Right up my street - New Vintage style Seamster 300

Love the look of this. Always fond of the original and the new take looks lovely in my opinion.

Clearly I have a liking for vintage inspired divers, but look at that movement, sandwich dial, narrow bezel, all beautiful to me.

I even like the lollipop second hand.

New grail on my list.

Like that!
 

Curious as to why (I know it’s an exhibition case back) they haven’t fitted the NAIAD-locked caseback ?

 

Edit:

Thinking about it further (it is early :wheelchair:) probably due to water resistance?

Do I need to Google NAIAD or am I just being a simpleton?

 

Hey @JayDeep how about a brand new vintage Omega in blue!?

Which though ?

The one in the picture, I guess.

NAIAD, as Alan has pointed out, is the patented locking system on some Omega case backs. In ancient Greek mythology it was a female sprite or water nymph – there were hundreds of them! And it is also one of the moons of Neptune.
