The Omega Seamaster 300 was originally released alongside the Speedmaster in 1957 under reference CK 2913. In 1961, the reference CK 14755-61 was introduced with a slightly thinner case and a small arrow minute hand instead of a large arrow hour hand. These watches featured a two-part bezel with a thin outer portion in bakelite that displayed 10-minute graduations for diving. Unfortunately, bakelite proved fragile over time and many examples no longer have the original bezel intact. This watch is one of those casualties, but it does make up for it with a rather unique Meister-signed dial. Meister, a Zurich-based jeweler, is known to have co-branded a small number of watches with Omega in the 60s and 70s and it’s very rare to see the double signature on this particular reference.

Dial, Hands, & Crystal: The black dial and steel hands have developed a heavy patina that is sure to please those who love a watch with some character. The color of the radium is a nice golden hue and even across the hands and dial.
