I am a big fan of these watches, the way the sun catches the natural minerals in the dial is amazing and each one is unique.
Developed by Omega in the late sixties at enormous expense, it was the climax of their quartz watch making, the most accurate Omega ever made and amongst the most accurate watches ever made, accurate to 1 second per month
The Calibre 1510 was most famously produced with an aventurine crystal dial, nicknamed the ‘Stardust’. The watch came in a number of variations of dials: stardust (silver and gold), waffle dial in black, blue and brown and electric blue dial, by far the most coveted of the production models is the stardust dial and none more so than this gold version with gold hands ,in fact the combination of stainless steel case and gold aventurine dials is possibly the rarest of all configurations. Please note that as with many of these dials this example has some hairline cracks on the dial but that doesn’t detract from the beauty of the piece.
The total production run of calibre 1510 was also 1000 units, around 800 of which were produced in stainless steel with a variety of dials and 200 were produced in solid 18 carat gold (weighing over 200 grams) with either stardust or electric blue dials,
The original list price in 1974 for a calibre 1510 was £604 in stainless steel and £3275 in 18 carat gold, by contrast the Moonwatch was £134!
The stainless-steel case is fitted to an original shark skin strap finished with the original Omega clasp
