The Extract from the Archives (No. 40 786), dated March 2, 2021, mentioned that this watch was delivered on August 28, 1968, to the Omega agent, Gameo S.A., Switzerland; with the remarks : “delivered … in a “racing” dial & hands configuration”.
This watch has the particularity of having a dial without “T” countermarks, i.e. without the application of tritium on the indexes.
