This watch has a calibre 1012 movement housed in case number 166.0175. According to information provided by Jean-Luc Miranda of Omega Museum this is an authentic Dynamic with an automatic calendar movement of cal. 1012, 23 jewels, with central sweep-second hand. This watch style replaced the former Genève Dynamic references ST 166.0039 AND 166.0107. International Collection : 1974-1975

The computer designed ergonomic dial was designed to fit the contours of the wrist. Its elliptical shape results from an advanced study of the anatomy of the wrist and specifically the oval zone on which the wristwatch rests. Self-winding movement. Monocoque case, hermetically sealed crystal assuring water-resistance to 30 m. Dial in harmony with the decidedly functional look of the watch for easy legibility of the hour, the minute and the second thanks to concentric time "zones" and contrasting coloured hands. A new approach to the bracelet was incorporated into the design: a single piece screw-in into a circular groove under the case by a steel ring; cut in Corfam, a porous synthetic material pierced with 30 aerating holes; widened near the case to fit firmly and comfortably on the wrist. Crown integrated to the case in order not to break the aerodynamic line which inspired this famous model's name.
