The middle of the crystal has the Omega logo etched into it. You can see it reflected also on the steel section of the minute hand. Nifty.
This watch is powered by the Calibre 552 Omega movement. I have two other vintage Omegas with the 5XX series movements in them. They are accurate, rock-solid and one of the finest watch movements ever produced by any Swiss brand.
I had it on a mesh bracelet earlier this week to give it a real early '70s 'Burt Reynolds-in-"Deliverance"' kind of vibe, but I've since fitted a nylon NATO strap to it.
This watch measures about 42mm in diameter, making it a classic size for this type of watch. I've been selling watches for over ten years now and I have seen various brands bring out larger and larger watches, to the point of ridiculousness. A watch is an understated accoutrement used for telling the time. Not something that announces to the world "Hey, look at me!!"
Just my take.

And below, my Seamaster 300 on a NATO strap. If you ever come across original models of these three watches, then you'll have seen what's been often regarded as the Holy Trinity of Dive watches among collectors.
The deeply notched bezel makes it easy to turn with wet hands.
The strap itself is threaded underneath the case. These straps are very comfortable to wear. And if they get dirty, you just thrown them into the washing machine.
Works very well on a kevlar-style strap as well.
This model has the later version of the winding crown which screws down against the case for optimal water-resistance. Notice also the markers on the dial and the numerals on the bezel, which glow quite brightly after exposure to light.
I also had the option of purchasing the date model of this watch, but felt that the non-date version had more balance and clarity of form.
Thanks for reading!
