1968 Omega Seamaster 300

Published By

Are there watches that you have on your “‘holy grail” list, that seemingly unattainable collection of fine timepieces you’d give anything to have? Or perhaps it’s just one watch from a lauded, legendary brand? Perhaps the 1968 Omega Seamaster 300 fits that description? In our minds, it certainly does.

This remarkable watch is truly one-of-a-kind, seeing as it was owned by Lt. Col. George Aikman Finter, a legendary intelligence officer and remarkable man who served no less than four tours of duty in Vietnam (where he was killed in action, leaving behind a truly remarkable timepiece and an even more remarkable life).

If you consider yourself a history buff or a watch buff, or a little (or a lot) of both, the 1968 Omega Seamaster 300 is surely worth coveting. You won’t find another watch like this one — it’s a true national treasure worthy of an American hero, after all. [via]
