You are viewing a rare Omega "Memomatic" case ref 166.072 was introduced by Omega in 1969. With a barrel shaped stainless steel case, measuring 41mm in width excluding the crown it appears bigger on the wrist than the stats suggest. The watch is modeled on a 17.50cm wrist.

The model uses the highly complex Omega calibre 980 movement. Unusually the movement has a single barrel that controls the power for both the time and alarm functions. This means that the automatic rotor will provide all the power required for the watch to operate.

The Memomatic was the only alarm watch produced in 1960s that offered minute by minute setting. If you wanted to be on time for a meeting at 20 past three precisely in the afternoon, your memomatic wrist alarm could remind you with an exactitude unavailable in other wrist alarms such as the Vulcain Cricket or the Jaeger le Coultre Memovox.

The barrel shaped Memomatic case was the longest-living of all the Memomatic models remaining in the Omega catalogue from 1969 to 1979 and is notable in a numbers of ways: superb case design, ground-breaking functional features and amazing dials that remain appealing to the contemporary eye.

Memomatics have risen steeply in value over the last couple of years but still an undervalued alarm wrist watch, it was the first of many watch to have the self-winding alarm and winding time functions operate with one barrel.
