One of the questions that frequently gets asked is what the approximate date of manufacturer of an Omega Chronograph is based on it's serial number. There have been a number of charts similar to this on published in various publications in one form or another through the years. This chart is in no way a substitute for contacting Omega Vintage Information with the Serial Number of an Omega movement and requesting information as it is a very inexact guide (perhaps as close as +/- 1-2 years). However it is potentially useful for narrowing down the vintage of Omega Watches. For those who are looking to date a Speedmaster, Please link here to a more up-to-date and more specific table for dating Speedmaster Serial Numbers compiled by Roman Hartmann and also hosted by myself again this table is also approximate and barring a more accurate table published by Omega is the best we have.

Note: The above list may prove potentially useful for determining the approximate age (perhaps as close as +/- 1-2 years)of an Omega watch via cross-referencing it's serial number with the date in the table above. Remember that watches were not necessarily sold in order or sold close to the date of manufacturer. Omega started utilizing ETA Calibers by 1980, those serial numbers may or may not be accurate within this table..

Acknowledgement..
