The Omega Memomaster, from 1980, with LCD screen, with electronic movement cal 1632.

This is a good example, watch only, with all aspects working and the watch itself all original with just light surface scratching.

 

Produced from 1978-1981, the Omega Memomaster was a revolutionary piece of technology at the time. Omega were seeking to keeping up with the ever-changing market for watches during the 70s by investing significant amounts of money into designing quality quartz calibres. These also led to them developing their ability to design electric watches and LCD.

Using the research and development and long-lasting expertise in the watch industry they could market such a watch with authority. These watches were not cheap at the time. The watch was sold with the strapline “The LDC wrist instrument: Omega’s unique electronics expertise at your fingertips.

The manual also states of it’s agenda function “It even thinks for you, some might say discovering the Omega Memomaster Quartz’s versatile performances. This was in reference to the variety of features inside, of which the Agenda function was king.

Features: Multi-Memory LCD watch, with hours, minutes, seconds, date, day of the week, plus three memory functions: Timer, 24-Hour alarm and agenda (Programmable date), sound signal and tempered mineral crystal.

 

How it works:

Digital watches can always be tough to pin down, especially when you don’t have instructions.

 

The central Omega symbol is the 30 second sound signal alarm.

The top right button sets the times, timer programming, date or second selection and stops the sound signal.

 

The middle pusher on the right is the time corrector used to set the time.

 

The bottom right button selects the timer, alarm, or agenda mode.

 

The bottom left button is the light for seeing in the dark.

 

The top right button is for programming of the alarm or the agenda, as well as resetting the timer.

 

The screen displays the hours and minutes. On the right it can display either the seconds or the date. There is a pointer arrow at the bottom of the screen which points to the day of the way.

 

The condition:

The watch works correctly in every way. The LCD screen displays with no error, the functions all work, the speaker for the alarm works and the light works.
