This is a very special and rare circa 1975 Omega Yellow Gold Filled ‘Time Computer 2’ LED, and extremely important part of Omegas watch making in that it was their first ever digital watch, not only extremely expensive to develop but also astronomically expensive to buy when new, it was absolutely their range topper watch.
The watch is in stunning condition and has never been refinished, it is only showing the very lightest of wear marks and has picked up the odd storage mark and operational condition. The module has been serviced and overhauled at Strikes and Spares , this is not a cheap generic replacement module it is the original Omega cal 1600 series with updated circuit (giving better battery life) and original serial number.
I have to be honest, I have seen very few of these Time Computer 2’s in this conditionl, you can’t find them without noticeable damage (normally the case and crystal are very poor and they are YGF) or without fault, this one is not only in near new condition but also works exactly as it should.
Digital technology has now become common place but when introduced this was absolutely revolutionary, the build quality was of the highest standard and testament to these watches is that after 45 years it is still going as well as the day it was made. Spares for these are readily available and they are a true piece of firstly watch making history but secondly innovative design.
The Omegas Time Computer 1 (and Hamilton version the QED) were famously worn by Tele Savalas when playing the TV cop ‘Kojak’, other famous owners included Ringo Star and Mick Jagger.
