yes, folks, another vintage Seamaster champagne dial 18ct gold bezel quartz model but rare HEQ 1441 movement, accuracy then rated at +-10secs/year.....
Had the wife bid and won this beauty.
I had hernia operation last week so was out of commission but back in the saddle! haha!

heres a pick of the movement.It was borrowed.its an ETA 255.561.thermocompensated movement thats modifed by omega.


all the omega 200m quartz models used this.pretty sweet for a movement that has 10 seconds rating for a year.

First of all, I hope you are feeling better Thian ! Get well soon sir !

I think this new Omega might help you get better faster ! That
movement in that watch sounds really intriguing, and seems to look
GREAT as well ! I like what definitely seems like a solid build on this
one by the way. The bracelet actually catches your eye, as it seems
to be built like a tank. It also flows perfectly into the case. What a
classy bezel, along with stylish looking dial ! The gold makes this
watch EXTRA special ! ..Congratulations on getting this watch !
Enjoy that one !!!..NICE photo too !

Correction, if I may, the 1441 caliber was installed most likely only from 1987 to 1988, then the 1438s were used. So from my readings, the 1441 is quite rare to find. Here is my shot of the movement...
I am going to have a WUS HEQ member in NZealand test its accuracy and even regulate it, if need be! haha!
