    Folks, I've fallen in love with my gold 176.007 and I'm already looking to pick up my next. I've been researching the various dial versions and so far I have found at least 8 different dial versions. These dial versions are different variations on four dial colors and either applied numbers or printed numbers. Are there any more versions than what I have collected below? Thanks in advance.

    Is it just me or does the tachy scale on this gold one look different? It looks like it's printed in black instead of red but this may just be down to the lo-res image.

    Also, I think there were solid gold and gold plated versions of this watch. The below looks like the plated version to me - the solid gold one would have probably come on a bracelet.

    I think it's just the low res image as these do have the red printing on the tachymeter bezel.

    I'd like to learn if there was a solid gold version. The story I read is that a solid gold version was made as a special gift but that it was not a production watch. If anyone has the scoop, I'd love to learn it. Thanks for the feedback.

    I have been cataloging cal. 1040 dials for a while. So far I'm up to 34 unique dials, 32 of which I'm fairly confident are legit. About a third have been spotted on 176.007. In addition to the ones you've posted, there are three other 176.007 dials, which are variants on 3 of the above: 72166-9a5325a29f09f8c2dff8b0cc2a92f135.jpg jghjfg.jpg 176794-59d89c2c1a62b87f1d583281b53889c9.jpg
    They are the same as above except the order of the text is "OMEGA Seamaster AUTOMATIC".
    Then there's this one, which I don't think was original to 007 (should be on a 176.005MD):

    And finally there are the so-called Mark III (b) - as named by Chuck Maddox (I also happen to believe these were not original but dial swaps):

    I had a real love for that watch about 10+ years ago when you could get them for less than $1000. My Gold Plate one was NOS and I think I still only paid $1400.

    I had one of these beauties some time ago but i sold it. I regretted doing that forever so when an opportunity emerged to buy one again i jumped at it. I just got it today.

    Hi all!
    I’m new to this forum but wanted to add mine/my variation. Similar with the light blue details (which attracted me to buy this watch) but with a bit strange and pale looking bezel/tachy! Wouldnt have been blue. Just grey/silver as still is....?
    So which years were these made? 1970?

    Can we discuss the differences in end links? Seems like omega was selling them with some nicer bracelets with model numbers and end links that fit properly and also selling with generic bracelets with generic end links. Why?

    How would this fit in, with its pusher bases?
