    Seamaster 1040 with strange dial

    Has anybody seen this dial on a 1040 before or on any other Omega for that matter?

    Here is mine Roar, which is also unusual for this model. The dial is the same as the one used in the Seamaster Yachting ST 176.010. This particular one is all white, which I hadn't seen before.

    Hi there,

    I think there are 3 common variants: the blue dialled version that Eric has (no applied markers), the blue dial/white tachy combo with applied markers and the silver dial/blue tachy combo with applied markers (shown below).

    I have seen the dial before that you have shown in your second post (blue dial, white tachy, grey subdial and numerals on the applied markers) and it looks like the dial in question is the silver dial (not white?) version of this. It might be the case that a new white tachy ring has been fitted, one might expect that this dial originally was paired with a blue tachy or yachting ring.

    Just a theory-in-progress!

    Looks to me like a white version of the dial on the 176.010 Yachting. Have not seen one before...

    That's what it is Joe, but the Yachting Seamaster was never fitted with that one, as far as I know. I suspect it was made for the Seamaster ST 176.007, as a white version, similar to mine.

    Hi Blaise. Yes, that's the common model. The main difference with this strange one is in the numbered applied markers on a white dial.
