I owe John a pic of the installed display-back on the 70s 861 restored at Bienne. The color of the movement parts is a light copper pink. Because the movement is in the case so tight, I installed the sapphire back without the thicker movement spacer.


The following is a pic of my 863 17-jewel movement with the 18th jewel in it. The movement parts are yellow gold with "Omega" bridge slightly more golden like 18K than the rest of the movement.


I also have a Moonphase 1866 movement which looks nice enough for a display-back too. Looks like I'll have to hunt down another back.

Very, very nice.

What a couple of beauties, Rob. As beautiful as that c.863 looks, the classic 861 is more than worthy of display.

Thanks for sharing!
