A rare and unique 1972 solid stainless steel racing dial Omega Automatic in all original condition, freshly serviced and ready to wear. This awesome vintage Omega is in superb condition throughout with a unique, near mint original factory printed dial and only light surface signs of wear on the unpolished case. I just love the design and detailed printing of the dial housed in a sharp, faceted solid stainless steel case with flat brushed top, angled lugs and polished sides. It measures 35mm in diameter and comes on a perfectly matched rally style 18mm soft genuine leather strap.
