Omega Genève Ref. 166.0170 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1975
An unusual and large stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with hooded lugs, day & date indication, Omega bracelet and Omega boxes
This large sized Omega wristwatch has a substantial cushion form case which incorporates unusual, polished and angled, hooded lugs. Automatically wound via the calibre 1022, the crown is equipped with two settings – when the crown is pulled out to its first setting, the date can be moved either forwards or backwards by rolling the crown in either direction; by pulling the crown out to its second setting, the hack feature engages, thereby stopping the seconds hand to allow accurate synchronisation to a time signal, rolling the crown towards the wearer advances the hands, rolling away advances the days of the week in tandem with reverse hand setting. Pushing the crown back towards the case re-activates the seconds hand. The watch has an Omega signed crystal and crown and is fitted with its original, detachable, Omega steel link bracelet with adjustable folding clasp.
Accompanied by a red Omega presentation case and outer card box.
