Omega Seamaster 300*** CK 2913-3 FAP*** 1959
OMEGA Seamaster 300, CK 2913-3, Broad Arrow, Issued to Fuerza Aérea del Perú (FAP), 1959
Serial: 16334689
Circa: 1959
Reference: CK 2913-3

CASE: 39mm, Stainless Steel with black rotating bi-directional 60min bezel, straight lugs, back engraved with Seamaster logo and the words “Certified High Pressure Waterproof”
"FAP" engraved on the caseback

MOVEMENT: Omega Cal. 501, self-winding mechanical, 20 jewels

DIAL: Black with triangular radium hour markers. Broad Arrow metallic hour/minutes hands and "lollipop" seconds hand.

BRACELET: Leather strap

CONDITION REPORT: The dial has aged over time and surface is slightly cloudy. The radium hour markers and broad arrow hands have darkened over time with small black dots present as well. The bezel is original but has a small chip in the transparent coating at the top near 60.
We found the watch in this configuration and left it as it was. Although we have observed other examples and been told by other experts that this configuration is correct for FAP, we consider it is possible the lollipop was added on after leaving the factory.

NOTES: According to the Omega Museum Archives Extract this watch as manufactured in 1959 and delivered to the Peruvian Air Force.

The Seamaster 300 was launched by Omega in 1957 along with the Speedmaster and Railmaster. Known as the "Holy Trinity" or "Trilogy" these first references are extremely rare and highly collectible.
