OMEGA De Ville UFO  Ref. 166.094


Here we have Omega Ref. 166.094, a wonderful example of an unique and rare timepiece. There have been several nick names for this watch. People would describe it as the "UFO", "Flat Bezel" or the "Coin". The Ref. 166.094 is not seen often on the market and was pretty unusal for the periode it was build in. Coming with a pretty big 40 mm case and a big bezel it was a new design and an unusual setting back then. This beautiful vintage watch comes with unpolished case in good condition and with sharp edges. It offers an extraordinary you will not find again. The dial is allover in clean condition. The simple Omega-logo alongside the beautifully aged indexes and hands are harmonious and well balanced. The date is set at 3 o´clock. The crown is original with the appropriate Omega logo. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a calibre 1002 movement, running strong and keeping time. This Omega "UFO" is a very rare timepiece in top condition.


Omega was founded in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt. Out of this small watch manufacture grew a large company: In 1894, the famous 19-ligne pocket watch movement was developed and named “Omega”. Omega, as the final letter of the Greek alphabet, stands for the ultimate level in perfection and quality. In the 1930 the company entered into collaboration with the S.S.I.H. (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). Out of this collaboration the Swatch Group developed. Today, Omega is the flagship of this huge company. In 1932, Omega entered its partnership with the Olympics which continues till today. When in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished the first moon landing there were equipped by Omega with the Speedmaster, and this so-called „Moonwatch“ is still regarded as one of the most significant watches in history.
