Cal. 19.4 SOB T2 S = Seconds O = Omega caliber B = 15-17 jewels, adjusted to 1 minute per day. T = Transformation The Omega ?Marine? line was launched in 1932; the case was patented as No. 146.310, granted on March 10, 1930. The ?Marine? was the first watch to be tested at a depth exceeding 70 meters. In 1936 an Omega ?Marine? descended to a depth of 73 meters for 30 minutes in the Lac Léman; the temperature at maximum depth was 5 degrees Centigrade. Upon returning to the surface, the watch was in perfect working order.
