This Seamaster Soccer Timer was one of a few variants released and is an amazing example of its type. The case is very crisp with all edges, brushed and polished surfaces and case back all in magnificent condition. If this has been restored, rather than being simply unblemished from new, it’s the best casework we’ve ever seen on a vintage watch. The dial is beautiful with all original hands and lume in place. While the hour, minute and sweep second dial hands are faded from their original orangey shade of red, they retain a lovely patinated hue.
After a recent overhaul the watch is keeping good time, and the chronograph runs and resets as it should.
