    Hello Omega Forum.

    For sale is my 1970 Omega Big Yellow 166.066, serviced by Archer in 2020. Includes Omega 1170 bracelet and 626 endlinks. This model was available for one year, then replaced by the 166.092. It was my Covid distraction project but sadly isn't getting enough wrist time.

    Movement: Omega cal.565. Full service by Archer Watches, November 2020, including PDF of service and old parts. A failed water resistance test was the only issue not addressed at service.

    Dial: Brushed silver linen texture dial in very good condition. Slight discoloration at the dial edge at 2,5 and 9, but not apparent on the wrist. Lume dots missing at those points as well. Yellow inner bezel in good vintage condition, save for a small mark on the edge just past 9.

    Bracelet: Omega 1170, sized for 185mm wrist. Can go 3 micro-adjust larger, plus 2 spare links included.

    Case: Some polishing was done, but still retains some radial brushing. New Omega signed crown at service. Small ding at 345 on the case front and another small ding at 4 on the case side. And minor scratches you'd expect on a watch from 1970. A couple scratches on caseback. Unsigned flat crystal, no scratches.

    Dimensions: 42mm wide w/o crown, 43.8 lug to lug, 11.6 thick. 109 grams including bracelet. It's a substantial watch, but wears comfortably due to the lug to lug length and curved case.

    Let me know if you have any questions. I'd be happy to provide other pictures if you'd like. I've tried to include some less flatttering shots for full disclosure, but it's a stunning watch on the wrist.

    With all this talk of watches with a splash of color, time for a bump.
