Omega Automatic Steel

Omega Automatic Steel

Every man needs a versatile everyday watch in his quiver; one that can be dressed up or down, works like a charm, and gives you all the information you could ever want with a quick glance at the wrist.  Of course vintage is always a good way to go...particularly when they look like this!

The name Omega has become synonymous with quality and with an incredible history of producing some of the world's finest chronometers - not to mentioned chronographs that adorned the wrists of the first Americans in space - Omega is a brand that should be on the short list for any collector. 

Mid-20th Century Omegas are about as diverse a collection as one can imagine, with petite, ultra-thin gold dress pieces on one end of the spectrum, and giant steel monocoque professional divers on the other.  Smack dab in the middle is this guy - an absolutely stunning Reference 166.041 from circa 1969. While an elegant matte white eggshell dial with fancy Arabic hour markers and black steel feuille hands make for a proper dress piece, a brushed steel case and quickset date function ensure that it works as a daily banger just as well.

This beauty is sized at 34mm, making it the perfect watch for jeans and a t-shirt or more formal attire, and looks just as good on a leather strap as it does on nylon.  This is a no-brainer; simple, easy, affordable and the perfect vintage watch for regular daily use - this is going to make someone very happy!


Stainless steel case is approximately 34mm (excluding crown).  Omega Reference 166.041. Calibre 565 Automatic Winding Movement. Circa 1969.

Overall condition: Case is in exceptional condition over all, showing virtually no wear or blemishes, and shows no signs of polishing.  Original dial and hands are in excellent condition with no loss of print, signs of oxidation or hand drag.  Original case back shows faint tool marks. Original signed crown.

Includes 18mm brown leather strap.
