FOG CITY VINTAGE A VINTAGE OMEGA SEAMASTER 300 WITH SOME MAJOR PROVENANCE
A watch with provenance is consistently somewhat more unique in my book, and recently an incredible story hit our DMs that we thought merited sharing. Drawn out into the open by San Francisco’s Fog City Vintage, this Seamaster 300 was once worn by Lieutenant Colonel George Aikman Finter, who served in post-WWII Germany, four visits in Vietnam, and filled in as a knowledge official in South America — all of which would ultimately procure him a Legion of Merit and a Bronze Star. The watch, which is in brilliant condition given its age and the activity it’s seen, comes with an entire bundle of individual archives from Finter himself, among them identifications, IDs, photographs, and more.

Who said advancement is dead?
