It is not too late to get to the topic. Today I want to talk to you about the number of Omega watches. Players and sellers talk about watch numbers, especially Rolex and Patek Philippe. The names of watches are ’empty.’ As for the number, everyone knows what the watch is, which is more convenient to say. In addition to Law and PP, players such as Vacheron Constantin, Blancpain, Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Panerai, Glashütte Original, etc. also use numbers to communicate. The only exception here is the mainstream brand, which is Omega. Because the Omega number is too long, except when looking for a specific watch, send the number in WeChat and SMS, usually no one will say the Omega number. Numbers of others, 3 digits for Panerai, 4 digits for Patek Philippe and Blancpain, 5 digits for Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, 5 digits for old Rolex models are 6 digits for sales, and 6 digits for Rolex are more numbers. As a result, Omega gave a 14-digit number directly, who remembers? And the 14-digit number of Omega is divided into 6 segments. For example, 3126.96.36.199.01.007 is the number of the dark side of the Omega Moon. Whoever opens his mouth says that it is God.
The dark side of Omega Speedmaster Moon, number 3188.8.131.52.01.007, I will use this table as an example below.
Although we can’t remember, we can understand.
Everyone knows that some watch numbers are not regular, and some watch numbers are regular. The most typical is Rolex. Several digits, different numbers represent different meanings, you can know what table it is by looking at the number. Although the number of Omegas grows to 14 numbers in 6 segments, Omega is the most regular, 6 segment numbers, each of which represents a meaning. I will explain to you paragraph by paragraph. After reading, brothers will find ‘I rely on, it is so simple.’
Take the number ‘3184.108.40.206.01.007’ on the dark side of the Omega Speedmaster as an example.
Omega Seamaster 300m diving watch, number 220.127.116.11.01.003.
The first paragraph of the Omega number (that is, 311 in 318.104.22.168.01.007)
The first digit of the Omega number represents the collection of Omega watches. For example, 311 represents the Omega Speedmaster series. The main Omega series are numbered as follows:
212——Hippocampus 300m diving watch
215/232-Seahorse, Ocean Universe
327-Speedmaster Mark II
You can compare this number. Even if we can’t remember it, as soon as we look at the first paragraph, we know that it is the series of watches that represent Omega.
Omega’s new hippocampus AT, number 22.214.171.124.03.002
The second paragraph of the Omega number (that is, 92 in 3126.96.36.199.01.007)
The second paragraph of the Omega number represents the material of the case and bracelet of the Omega watch. For example, 10 stands for stainless steel case and stainless steel bracelet. 92 in the dark side of the moon represents the case and bracelet of materials other than K gold and stainless steel. Because the dark side of the moon is a ceramic watch, 92 means materials other than steel and gold. The second paragraph of the Omega number has many numbers from 10 to 98, because the Omega case and bracelet are too many materials and too many combinations, so the number is a lot.
Omega Inter-Gold Constellation, number 188.8.131.52.02.001
The third paragraph of the Omega number (that is, 44 of 3184.108.40.206.01.007)
The third digit of the Omega number represents the size of the watch. For example, the number 44 on the dark side of the moon represents 44 mm in size. The third number is more intuitive for us. We can know the size of the watch by looking at the number.
Omega Seahorse 300, number 220.127.116.11.01.001
The fourth paragraph of the Omega number (that is, 51 of 318.104.22.168.01.007)
The fourth paragraph of the Omega number represents the movement of the watch. The fourth paragraph is special because it needs to be viewed separately. For example, 51 is divided into 5 and 1. The front number represents the type of movement, and the latter number represents the number of movement functions (the number of functions other than the hour, minute, second calendar). How does the number 51 in the dark side of the moon come from? I will write it below, and you will know at a glance.
2——Coaxial escapement movement
4——Observatory Chronograph Movement
5——Coaxial escapement chronograph movement
7-quartz chronograph movement
The dark side of the Omega Speedmaster Moon is 322.214.171.124.01.007. The fourth paragraph number is 51. We know at a glance that 5 is the coaxial escapement chronograph, and 1 means that in addition to the hours, minutes, seconds, and calendar, there is an additional function ( Time zone function, because now Omega can use 8500 and above movement, you can adjust the time zone separately), so it adds up to 51.
Omega Seahorse Ocean Universe, number 126.96.36.199.01.002
The fifth paragraph of the Omega number (that is, 01 in 3188.8.131.52.01.007)
The fifth paragraph of the Omega number represents the type of dial. For example, 01 in the dark side of the Supermaster Moon 3184.108.40.206.01.007 represents the ‘black’ dial. As before, I will simply list some of the main color numbers below.
In addition to the main colors listed above, Omega refers to some other special dials with numbers 51 to 64, where 51 to 64 refer to gemstone dials of different colors. For example, 51 is a black gem dial and 52 is a silver gem dial. More special is 99, 99 stands for special dials, such as Omega’s meteorite dial.
Omega Speedmaster 57 with number 3220.127.116.11.01.002
The sixth paragraph of the Omega number (that is, 007 in 318.104.22.168.01.007)
The sixth paragraph of the Omega number represents the serial number of the product. This part of the number is not useful to our players.
Let me summarize the brothers.
Omega’s 14-digit serial number and 6 segments sum up:
Watch Series · Case Bracelet · Watch Size · Movement · Dial · Product Number
Omega Speedmaster MKII, number 322.214.171.124.06.001
For the Omega numbering method, players have explored its advantages and disadvantages. I think the advantage is that the Omega number is actually very intuitive, and each paragraph represents a fixed meaning. At a glance, you can know the various configurations of the numbered watch. At a glance, at least we can see the size of the watch from the number. The number of many other brands of watches, like Patek Philippe, Rolex, Blancpain, Panerai, etc., is a number, there is no corresponding so detailed. As for the disadvantages, it is said that the Omega number does not include other information about the year of production and water resistance. I said nothing wrong, brother … if you include other information, the number must not be 20 or 30 digits. Does the 14 digits still not feel long enough?
