    7xx series not as beautiful as 5xx series but still rugged and dependable. Due to the Swiss watch crisis/quartz revolution omega was already looking for ways to cut costs to stay alive. The rotor was made cheaper as were some other parts but I have read many reviews where watchmaker praised its design and functionality. The 5xx series is considered by many to be the most beautiful mass produced luxury movement from the golden age off Swiss watchmaking.

    Thank you. Is the Cal 565 a lot better than 562 and why, if so, please ?

    I'd say the main difference is the date change mechanism, the 562 is changed by putting the movement between 9 and 12 and the 565 has a push/pull quick set date, that said, if you're going to wear it everyday then either movement is a great way to go.

    Both have 24 jewels and a date feature, the 565 also has a quick set date.
