    Movement Question - 24 Jewel/711

    Hello All:

    Can anyone tell me if the Omega 711 automatic movement from the mid-60's is any good?

    Regards,

    Hi

    It is one of Omega's thinnest and highest grade quality movements ever produced. It was used in small number in the Omega moonphase built in 1984 where this cal was modified into cal 717. The movement is very accurate and has a very good power reserve http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...uswk&Omega_711


    Hope this helps

    regards
