For sale we have an unusual model of Omega, not commonly seen. This was purchased by its original owner in the Australian market. It is a 1982 Omega Seamaster Quartz, reference 196.0296. It comes on its original Omega Steel bracelet, reference 1416/784. The case is neat, measuring 33mm x 32mm, with a slim depth of 5.5mm. This makes the watch an easy wear, with it being very neat on the wrist.


This model has a neat coin edge bezel which frames the dial. The dial is a silver tone with a linear brushed finish. The minute/second markers are neatly balanced around the dial, with applied baton hour markers in between. The date window is small with clean Omega Seamaster Quartz signing.


The crown is to the left-hand side and is small, in proportion with other aspects such as the date window. The sides of the case have a brushed finish. To the rear is the snap on case back with linear brushed finish and Seamaster medallion to the centre and 1432 signing. The inside is signed with Omega signing and the reference 196.0296.


The movement is a calibre 1432 which is an ETA base movement. It has had a new battery fitted and is working well, keeping accurate time.


This is a neat and stylish 1980s Omega, with the dependability of a Quartz movement. On its original bracelet, this is a classic watch suitable for every day wear.
