Please help me identify this heirloom

My father in law, a pilot of 50 years passed away and he left me his Omega Seamaster. The watch appears to be 30-40 years old and according to what he told me , he never got it serviced but it's keeping perfect time

My question

Please help me identify the model number of this watch. Also where can I find the serial number ?

Omega service is ridiculously expensive.
I would try to find a local watch repairman, not a store that mails it out.
Get it serviced. Seamsters are not terribly expensive or rare. So I would say the to polish or not question is really up to your preference.
