Default No Gold. Just an Omega Seamaster.

Looks like the real deal.
Has the serial number.
Still works. Mid size. It fits my smaller wrist.
The secondary clasp is loose so I figure that's how they lost it.

I wonder if I can trade it for a decent beach machine?

Update 7/21
This is a quartz model. Made sometime in 1993 indicated by the serial number. The only downside is the lum is worn out but some like it like this.

Schweet! Wonder if this comes up as overload on the CZ-21? Scubadetector probably would have an idea

Probably. All watches I find hit overload. Same with knives, Zippo's, some gold rings. I love overloads. Never know what you are going to get. Mostly cans but HUGE surprises like guns.

Yes that should get you a fine machine. My friend Kevin got a Tag Hauer two years ago. 2400.00 new, he got a grand for it on Fee-Bay.

Cool Thanks. Not to hijack this thread, think of it like a bump But...

If you happen to be in Discrim 2 and get an overload, do you think that is an overload for something within the discrim 2 range? Or can it still be iron overload while in disc 2?

Dug a few overloads before but skipped some as well, especially in the dry sand, think a few were cans, some were big lead.

Chicken fight, body surfing in 4ft swells. Luckily the only thing I've lost at the beach was my retainer at age 14 lol.

Oh my, oh my if I would have found that I would have been sooo glad it was not just another gold wedding band. I love mechanical wristwatches and wear one much of the time and would wear that one with pride often and not trade/sell it off for another detector. Huge congrats and wish you would reconsider and buy/trade your detector outright. Beautiful mans jewlery!!!!

If you have to dig a watch, that seems to be the one to dig, congrats!

I have ignored all of my overload signals too, now I have to go back and find them all to see what I skipped over!
