Omega Automatic Steel
Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
Every man needs a versatile everyday watch in his quiver; one that can be dressed up or down, works like a charm, and gives you all the information you could ever want with a quick glance at the wrist. Of course vintage is always a good way to go...particularly when they look like this!
The name Omega has become synonymous with quality and with an incredible history of producing some of the world's finest chronometers - not to mentioned chronographs that adorned the wrists of the first Americans in space - Omega is a brand that should be on the short list for any collector.
Mid-20th Century Omegas are about as diverse a collection as one can imagine, with petite, ultra-thin gold dress pieces on one end of the spectrum, and giant steel monocoque professional divers on the other. Smack dab in the middle is this guy - an absolutely stunning Reference 166.041 from circa 1969. While an elegant matte white eggshell dial with fancy Arabic hour markers and black steel feuille hands make for a proper dress piece, a brushed steel case and quickset date function ensure that it works as a daily banger just as well.
This beauty is sized at 34mm, making it the perfect watch for jeans and a t-shirt or more formal attire, and looks just as good on a leather strap as it does on nylon. This is a no-brainer; simple, easy, affordable and the perfect vintage watch for regular daily use - this is going to make someone very happy!
