Description

This is a rare Omega reference, the 176.0014, also known as the TV dial (due to the shape).

This reference is a true representation of the 1970s (this one dates back to 1975). Funky shapes, colors and configurations, integrated metal bracelets and rugged cases. This particular watch is in worn condition, but not worn-out! The case is still sharp and in good condition, with little-to-none stretch on the bracelet (note little corrosion at 1). The blue, sunburst dial is in good condition, with all the lume present, and with three subdials: at 24h indicator, at 9 the constant running seconds and at 6 the hours counter. Are we missing something? Oh, yes, the minute recording for the chronograph! This watch has a really interesting mechanism (as the base caliber is a Lemania 5100) that records the minutes with the center T hand. The day and date jump as they should, and could be easily changed on the different crown settings. The hands are sadly missing some lume. The crystal is a flat mineral unit, that gives the watch a slimmer profile.
