The vintage Omega Dynamic has burst back onto the scene, with its bold looks and big presence, demand for this watch has skyrocketed over the past 12 months. Not that should be any surprise given it was once Omega’s best selling model selling more than 1 million examples between 1968 – 1971!
This particular Omega dynamic is the reference 166.079 from circa 1969. At 40mm the Omega Dynamic commands presence on the wrist like few other vintage pieces can. In a world of copy and paste minimalist watches, the Dynamic’s retro dial design and thick elliptical case are sure to make an impression and draw numerous questions of it's origins.
The Omega Dynamic was first introduced in 1968 and touted as the world’s “first watch designed especially for the human wrist”. Its design was inspired in part by aerodynamic principles which were translated into a “lug-less” case design and crown that was recessed into the case to create a smooth flowing design. This idea of flowing lines and focus on ergonomics continued to the design of the strap that was formed from a single piece of synthetic material that widened near the case to provide a more secure fit.
A great example with true pedigree - grab it now before someone else does!
