FS: Omega Memomatic Vintage Seamaster 1971

Omega Memomatic ref. 166.072 from 1971 in good and original vintage condition.

The highlight of this rather rare 1970s alarm watch is the original and attractive blue and silver dial in near-perfect condition.

CONDITION REPORT. Please refer to the high-resolution pictures to assess the condition of the watch.

MODEL / REFERENCE: Omega Memomatic ref. 166.072, serial no 33’325’xxx

DIAL+HANDS: the dial is in near-mint condition. All printing is crisp. The date wheel is clean. The tritium lume markers are present and show some lume loss. The black hour and minute hands retain the original tritium lume. When activated with UV light, the tritium on the indexes and hands glows briefly and then fades off.

The lume on the indexes and hands has developed a pleasant patina.

CRYSTAL: Original Omega-signed plexy crystal with minor surface scratches. The plexy shows some cracks as often seen on old and original plexy glass crystals. The crystal can be replaced upon request.

MOVEMENT & FUNCTION: Omega Cal. 980 automatic alarm movement in clean and fully functional condition. The alarm hands set correctly, and the alarm can be activated and sounds clear. The movement runs strong and keeps good time for a vintage watch.

CASE: 40 mm stainless steel case in good and unpolished condition, retaining the original factory finish. The case shows signs of use consistent with the age of the watch. Lug to lug, it measures 50 mm, thickness approx. 14 mm.

CASEBACK: Omega signed the case back in excellent condition displaying the Seahorse logo.

CROWN & PUSHERS: original Omega signed crown and unsigned pusher

BRACELET / STRAP: Omega 1170 stainless steel bracelet with 618 end links. The bracelet shows some stretch as commonly seem with vintage steel bracelets. It will fit a wrist of approx.. 18 cm.

ACCESSORIES: Saffiano leather watch roll

WARRANTY: We guarantee the authenticity of the watch. We also provide 12 monthly guarantees for the correct function of this timepiece. All guarantees are subject to the General Terms and conditions.
