    Help identifying vintage Omega.

    Just picked this up from the tz sales forum. It's stunning! I'm still trying to determine the model and caliber. I don't want to open it up ... risk scratching the case back. Anyone have any ideas?

    Nice combination of dial color and strap. It looks like a mid-70's or later model, so it should have a 102x inside. There isn't a particular series it's from. By this time, Omega would have put that name on the dial if it were to belong to the Seamaster, De Ville, Genève or some other line.

    ulackfocus almost definitely right, either a 1020 or 1022 as they were the day/date movemnts of that time period that style of case was popular. the 1010 is not possible since it only had a day function and no date.

    Why not likely? It could be a cal 75x w d/d. especially of its late 60s. Ive tried for a connie with the exact same box-lug case that had a 751 in it.

    If the case back was a little bit flatter I would say definite 10xx but its hard to tell if the back is raised to accommodate the thicker cal 75x.

    The 75x was mostly used in the late 60's and a couple in the very early 70s.
    IMO the watch looks like one from the 70s - the case model and dial don't look like any cal.75x's that I've come across. Ah well, I just have 2 of them myself, a seamaster 750 and a connie 751.
    Could be one! Much nicer movement than the 102x in my opinion!
