Omega Seamaster 100 Laps Memory
27 Jewels, not bad for a Quartz
One can say about Omega's endorsement craze with all those cat-walk models and actors what one wants. But Omega movements are beautiful, period. Again, this 1/100th second chronograph is one of the nicest quartz movements I have seen. The details and finish are first class!
Those 5 red bars are the coils of the 5 step motors that drive the 7 hands of this watch. Omega claims that 50'000 transistors were used in this watch's microprocessor, the first of its kind. You can find a picture of this horological milestone on Omega's website. There is a gallery of Collector's Omegas sorted by year of issue and model.
