    IMG_7191.JPG IMG_7192.JPG Good morning,
    i want to ask an opinion about an omega gold dial i found recently. The size Is about 29,5 mm.

    I'm seeking general information about the dial the caliber of the movement and reference where the dial was been used. I try to google search information with poor results, can anyone help me? Many thanks in advance.

    Based on the dial feet positions and the pattern of rust on the back side of the dial near the date window, it's for a 563/565 movement...

    Here is the cut out on the calendar plate for a quick setting 56X series movement (565 in this case):

    Here is the rust pattern on the dial - in reverse of course:

    The specific case reference I can't tell you but looking for DeVille's with 563/565 is a start for you anyway...

    Cheers, Al

    These have been discussed before, I believe...

    Do some searches on the forum and be creative in the search field and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for :)

    Image found on internet, seems to be the same dial, but the reference shown in the picture, checked in the omega vintage database seems to be of a Constellation 565 Schermata 2017-10-18 alle 21.10.13.png

    1660105 case is definitely for a DeVille. Note that the Omega vintage database is not always accurate or complete.

    Pretty sure you have found the correct reference.

    Cheers, Al
