Raymond Weil’s Tango watches were the highlights of late 1990s when launched for the dress-watch market. 
The Tango series was well received especially in Asia.

Here’s the special edition series for the Tango, with diamond bezel and gold-plating.  It has a very high quality quartz movement within. It was produced circa in late1997 period.  Its original bracelet does not show justic to this beautiful watch at all and it is replaced with a high quality moto-racing style (car tyres grove design) rubber strap, it protrays a greater sense of prestige and modern feel for the watch. Let’s tango!

There are many versions and different models produced under the Omega Seamaster range of wrist watches; including chrono, quart, automatic etc.  The most famous and sought after model is none other than the Seamaster diver 300m. 

Here is a piece dated circa 1970s with cal. 1020 day-date automatic model.  The casing is probably of gold-capping as many such watches were produced using gold-cap technique.
This piece comes fully with original box and certificate. 
Note that the steel case back is press-in and not screw-in style.
