This Day Date Omega Quartz watch is in great condition, and shouldn’t be overlooked.  Model reference 196.0124.


From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1977.  The papers that came with the watch are stamped and dated for 1982, but no serial number or model is completed.  You can see more on this model on Omega’s own website here.


Omega invested a lot on money in quartz technology, even from the first Swiss quartz watch Beta-21.  Some of the projects were more wild and proved to be expensive, such as the Equinoxe or La Magique, but they also made their own in house movements to a very good quality.  Inside this 20 micron gold plated case is their calibre 1345, a 15 jewel movement that is well constructed (it is of course still fully working despite being 47 years old after all).  You can advance the hour hand independently to the minutes – ideal for travelling over different time zones.  To set the minute hand and seconds you use the push button set within the crown.  You can also quick set the date via the pusher at 4.  We will install a brand new battery before sending the watch out to the new owner.  Condition overall is very good , and the acrylic crystal still has the Ω logo in the centre so is likely the original.  The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred.

This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon.  By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
