Omega Rose Gold Capped Seamaster ref. #2577-23 SC Item #2487 SOLD
65 YEARS OLD!
This hefty Rose Gold-cap over stainless steel Omega Seamaster C-1952 features a very cool original finish two-tone dial. Gold capped cases differ from gold filled because with a capped case, the case material under the gold is stainless steel. With gold filled, the base metal under the gold is a cheaper metal, like white metal or brass. The gold capped are much more desirable. The high polish case measures 34.5mm across without the crown and just over 42.6mm from lug tip to lug tip. There is some slight wear to the gold at a few edges. It is minor and not seen when on your wrist. It also features a signed correct Seamaster crown in matching rose gold, and an Omega signed acrylic crystal - both in excellent shape!
The gold dial finish is all original with a matte center and a frosted border surrounding the outside. It also features applied, faceted rose gold markers with Arabic accents at 12, 3, 6, and 9, and matching hands. The dial does show some aging, but really looks wonderful given they are all 65 years old.
The watch features an in-house Omega's Cal. 354 Bumper Automatic winding movement with 17 jewels, micrometer regulator, and shockproofing.
It comes fully serviced including a brand new, correct Seamaster crystal, and mainspring, and is keeping very good time. Along with service, we completely disassembled the case and did some light refinishing, then ultrasonically cleaned it. We paired it with a brand new leather strap that looks great with the rose gold case. This watch really looks and wears like a bigger watch with its WIDE lugs and thick rose gold flat bezel.
