    The caliber 712 was Omega's joint venture with Rayville / Blancpain and Piguet to make an ultra-thin automatic. Skinny self winding movements were desired by the public and the 60's saw quite a few come to market. Piaget was one of the first with the microrotor caliber 12P in 1961, The 71x came in 1964, and AP / VC / JLC introduced the cream of the crop with the 202x/102x/92x in 1967.

    The one odd thing is that the 712 is the chronometer. Most of the chronometer full rotor calibers of the era end in a 1.

    Steve has first right of refusal in case he wants to buy it back, then Bryce who inadvertently picked up a redialed model but returned it, but I'll put you on the list.

    Thanks for the enlightenment. Incidentally I just bought a Deville with 711 movement hours ago, now I know the story behind the thin calibre. The looks of the movement is not as nice as Cal 5XX though. Just curious why they bother to put a movement without second hand to chronometer spec.

    No problem.....thanks for putting me in the list.

    The lack of a second hand enables the movement to be thinner. It still can keep time within chronometer specs regardless of it having a second hand or not. The capability of having a second hand is there, just not the parts/wheels to support it.

    IWC c-case today. Note that I'm using a lower case "c", since it is much smaller and thinner than the Omega version:
