I thrifted those beauties last weekend. Both works but desperately need servicing. If anyone knows a bit more about the specific models, when they are from? ( I think 60's for both).
Two nice looking finds! I've seen some pretty nice looking Seiko Goldfeathers, and besides needing a general cleaning (and whatever internal work needs to be done), yours looks pretty good too. You can use the case and movement numbers on the back and this website to help determine when yours was built: https://retroseiko.com/seiko-serial.htm

Thanks! The website you linked to seems very useful, unfortunately, the serial number on the Seiko is not in the format expected by the website. For the Omega, it's probably inside and I don't have the tools to open them. I'll wait for my watchmaker to do it for me :)

The omega is a bumper cal 354, likely from between 1952 and 1957. The inside is in fairly good condition. Crystal and crown are not original. Not bad for 5$ CAD :) Funny thing, the Seiko has an Eterna crown.

That’s one heck of a find! Always satisfying when that happens!
