The handsome and robust tonneau style case retains crisp edges and factory finishing, with honest signs of previous use present. There is some oxidation on the top right lug though it is very subtle in natural light. The crown that operated the hands at 4 o'clock and the crown the operates the bezel at 11 o'clock are both original to the watch, as is the single pusher button at 2 o'clock. The case back retains its factory engravings in very crisp condition. The Omega 1170 bracelet with 625 end pieces retains 22 links that show light stretch and will fit up to a 7 3/4-inch wrist.


The original dial perfectly encapsulated the sporty, yet refined aesthetic with the utilization of different designs and textures. The dish-shaped inner matte black dial is flawless, showing no damage and the lume plots all remain in perfection condition when inspected under UV light with a charming creamy yellow patina. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly with no degradation under UV light inspection. The roulette style minute track and inner rotating timing scale are in perfect condition as well.


None. The watch is keeping time perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
