The Seamaster XVI from 1956 is a special model launched for the XVI Olympic Games in Melbourne to commemorate 25 years of timekeeping at Olympic Games since the Los Angeles Games in 1932. The Olympic Cross of Merit awarded during the Helsinki Games in 1952 for "exceptional services to the world of sport" is embossed in the backplate; the plate is also engraved with "Seamaster XVI-Automatic-Waterproof". The Chinese lacquer dial shows delicate ageing lines and has acquired a beautiful patina.
