    Omega Automatic Geneve. Year manufacter? Crown size?

    Hi!

    I have an Omega Automatic Geneve with date. Can you tell me from what year/period is the wristwatch?
    The case is inscribed with the serial 1660163 and on the movement is inscribed 35429577 and 1012.
    I think that means the wristwatch has a cal. 1012.

    Are any sites of Omega wristwatches where you can type the serial and you know when was made the watch?
    From what I remember, is a site for Waltham watches. Or I am wrong?

    The wristwatch has not a crown. Can you tell me what size of crown I need for the wristwatch?
    A seller of Omega crowns said me I need a 4.6 mm crown. He said me after I sent him the serial from the case.
    Now, he sold 4.6 mm crowns. He has 4.5 mm crown and thinks it fits. What do you think?
    I measured the circle from crown position, and the ax is between 2 and 3 mm.

    I shall appreciate some answers. Thank you. Have a nice day.

    Hi!
    Thank you, georges zaslavsky, for the information about ofrei. I contacted ofrei staff and I received an answer about the crown. They don't have in stock the crown and it cost 39.96 dollars + shipping + custom fees. It is expensive for me.
    This is the information from ofrei site:

    Omega Crown Stainless Steel 42052/42527 w/Separate Female Stem Adapter
    $39.96
    8100/1501W

Comes with a separate female adapter.

    Has anyone an Omega wristwatch with a serial of the above?
    It would be nice if a person who has an Omega with a serial of the above could measure the crown.

    Thank you, o.v.e, for the information about Omega's vintage database. I checked and my wristwatch is made in 1972.

    I am expecting an answer. Thank you. Enjoy the Olympic Games! Have a nice week.
