An excellent example of the Omega Seamaster 176.005 from circa 1972. Often mistakenly called "The Jedi" watch, the reference 176.005 is known among collectors as the "TV case" owning to the styling of the case which, unsurprisingly, is similar to boxy tv sets of the era.

Whilst its boxy, 42mm case looks fantastic, it also makes it very susceptible to damage. Today the majority of TV case Seamasters are pretty banged up - but not here! The case retains its sharp edges and the original combination of brushed and polished finishing offering a ones of the cleanest examples we've seen.
