    Hello. I've purchased my first Omega, and was told by the seller that it's from the 1960's. But he doesn't know anything else about it. Would you all be so kind to help shed some light on this watch for me? s-l1600-2.jpg

    Only if you are kind enough to provide photos of the movement and inside the case back. That's where all the information is.

    I'd take a punt on it having a cal 1022 inside...

    I wouldn't have touched it without researching it first.

    I'm with you on that.

    Looks like it's had some moisture inside if the dial edges are anything to go by.

    I'm sorry I am obviously new and didn't know what to look for. Lesson learned.

    No need to apologise, we all pay "new collector tax" at one time or another (some of us when we're not that new to collecting).

    The general rule for success, is research the hell out of anything you want to buy, before you buy it... which I realise sounds condescending, but it's the way that you end up with good stuff... it just takes time and patience.

    Hopefully you're not into this one for too much cash. :)

    I paid $190 for it. I did some preliminary research and couldn't find anything like it anywhere. So I was thinking it was a rare diamond in the rough kind of thing. Likely I over paid for it, and should probably get rid of it or something. I don't have the watch tools to take the back off yet. I'm going to buy that this weekend. Then hopefully I can open the back up and reveal more information on the watch. I appreciate all of your information. I know everyone is "new" at something at one time or another. So I'll try not to ask too many dumb questions.

    Dude, it could be worse, and trust me, we've all been there!

    Best bet for opening case backs (and not causing damage), is to use a ball (goggle ball opening caseback) - there are people who sell "special" ones, but any kids inflatable rubber ball around 3 inches across will do.

    Oh, and welcome along. :thumbsup:

    That would have a separator bar between the day and date. Probably a 750/752.

    166.0141, cal 750.

    IIRC, the first day date from omega.
