Omega Genève Dynamic Ref. 166.079 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1969
A steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with day and date indication and steel bracelet
The Omega Dynamic was produced in a variety of styles, including manual and automatic, date and non-date versions. The Dynamic with day and date indication appears far less frequently than standard versions of the model and this example has a particularly rare and attractive metallic grey dial with satin finish. The outer tracking for minutes/seconds is finished in a ‘racing’ style and calibrated to fifths. Also unusual is the numeral configuration which consists of faceted metal baton indexes which are applied over a printed white ‘highlight’ border. Automatically wound via the calibre 752, the day and date will advance each day at midnight, however, the watch also has provision for quick date change via a secondary crown setting, pulling the crown out to its second position causes the date to advance forwards; the days of the week are advanced by moving the hands through 24-hours. The watch is fitted to its original Omega bracelet.
