This timepiece is a rare example of military timepiece, furthermore preserved in impressive and fully original condition.
It was produced for the Pakistani Air Force in 1960, as made abundantly clear by the inscription to the case back, which is furthermore confirmed by Omega Archives, as is its original Pakistani elected destination. Not only it bears the P.A.F. engraving to the back, but the movement as well is stamped P.A.F. (a detail found also on Omega timepieces made for other armies).
With a 38 mm. diameter, this timepiece is without a doubt classifiable as oversize for vintage standards. Large diameters are typical of military watches and are an effort to maximize readability. Other typical military traits are the dust cap, providing enhanced protection from atmospheric factors and from shocks as well, wide fully luminous hands, and the black luminous dial. It is interesting to note that this military dial is somewhat unusual, in the sense that instead of Arabic luminous numerals - a defining feature of military dials -, it bears luminous dagger numerals, placed on the outer rim together with the minute divisions, and four non-luminous Arabic numerals. In order to increase readability in the dark, the dagger numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 are different than the others. The rest of the dial is left absolutely unobstructed, save for the "Omega" and "Seamaster" designations. The design results in an incredibly martial-looking dial: utilitarian, masculine and supremely clear.
