Under the glass, engraved with the Omega logo underneath, we find a mint and highly attractive two-tone blue dial with applied steel baton indexes and luminous dots, outer minute/seconds and 1/5th seconds divisions, sunk guilloché subsidiary silvered dials for the constant seconds, the 12- hour and 30-minute registers, luminous steel Baton hands.
