The elliptical-shaped Dynamic, although created in 1965 for the Prix de Ville de Geneve, was officially launched in 1968; it was designed to fit the form and flow of the wrist, including an integrated crown.
During the life of the first generation Dynamic, Omega imbued it with upwards of over 20 different dial combinations. The case and dial angle up, and in the words of an Omega advertisement of the day, “for time-reading convenience, off-centered for the pleasure of owning a watch unlike any other” – the Dynamic represents a great affordable entry into the world of Omega quality and style.
Much like the unique Omega Chronostop, the Dynamic was designed to attract new young customers seeking a quality alternative to the junk watches of the time to Omega, and the first two generations in particular more than achieved that goal.
Between 1968 and 1972, Omega sold more than a million Dynamic’s, speaking to its popular design. Omega would go on to re-release the Dynamic line in 1984, with a third and final generation released in 1997.
This Omega Dynamic includes its original signed stainless-steel bracelet, spring bar tool, and Pelican travel case.
