Here we have our favourite quartz Omega. it's a mid size 36mm stainless steel transitional dive watch produced from the mid 80s to the early 90s. It is nicknamed the 'Pre Bond' as this was the last Seamaster diver produced before Piers Brosnan wore the full size 41mm 2541.80 in the 1995 'Goldeneye' film.

 

This Omega is unique in a nmber of ways. The dial consists of a black bezel, tritium lume plots and mercedes hands. With a date window at 3 it almost has the look of a Rolex Submariner and seems to be the only Omega model to use this hand style.

 

The movement uses the ETA 255.461, which was used oly in this watch and one or two others so is quite unique to. Interestingly it has a quick set function for the hour hand as well as the standard setting function. 

 

As expected the crown is screw down, as is the case back.

 

Another unique feature is the 'H link' bracelet. This is more commonly seen on vintage Seikos and some 90s Tag Heuer watches. Again this appears to be the only model Omega made this for and features a dounle locking deployant style clasp with a diver's extension.

 

The case has a brushed finish with a gold plated original crown and bezel. This model was also the first Omega to feature the serial number on the case back rather than on thr movement.

 

The complete  set is present with this watch, including retailers warranty card from 1994, both booklets, grey wallet and box and spare links too.
