A very close relative by the looks of it, Gary. :wink: :wink:

Both wonderful watches. :clap: :clap:

Is the bracelet interchangeable?

Not between those two Guy, but it’s interchangeable with my red dialled Tissot Navigator. I’ve actually just swapped a solid end link Uncle Seiko bracelet onto this Seamaster and stored the original Omega one for the moment.

The Uncle Seiko bracelet was designed specifically for this one model, as the Uncle Seiko owner has one… and wanted a bracelet. The bracelet can be found easily enough, but the end links… not so much..

The Omega strap also fits the three hand Seamaster I posted in this thread just over a week ago, albeit with a slightly different set of end links, but it already has its own bracelet anyway so I didn’t need it for that.

1960 Polerouter De Luxe, 18K rose gold

The dial patination seems to have stabilised, so it has kept its marbled look instead of turning more brown.

Thanks Dwight. Here’s another in the stable; My other 1967 Constellation. Identical to the green one above except for dial and hand colouring…
