    Which are Omegas most desirable calibres and models from their Vintage collection? Pre 1980s

    Hi all,

    I would like to collect Omega watches in the future and focus only on one brand.

    I need some thoughts on which are the most desirable Omega calibres from pre-1980 period.

    Also guidance on what Omega vintage models to look out for will be appreciated. Intention behind this is both love of collecting watches and long term investment.

    Thank you!!!

    A cal 30t2 link for you Omega 1894 Homage & 1945 Cal. 30T2SCrg . Then a cal 564/565 find them in a few types ie connies. I own a 600 cal and these were built to last, its a manual wind so nothing much goes wrong. Then they is the 321 from a premoon speedy and if looking at something really different in a movement the F300 hummer.

    Gotta agree with Joe that the 30T2SCRG chronometers are amongst the most desirable of vintage
    Omegas.
    So desirable in fact, that I can't afford one.
    I'm waiting for the day that I pull one out of a junk box at a car boot sale.

    I really like the 1045 movement, which is a straight-across Lemania 5100. Unfortunately, Omega put them in pretty funky-looking cases...

    I think it's still a good time to start to collect Omegas. The prices are the same like 5 years ago and still some nice pieces are available.
    To collect Heuer's or Rolex it's a little bit late. Even for Enicars I think it's to late.

    Specially the pre moon Speedys or the Ploprof have still a good price.
