Omega Serial Numbers: A Complete Guide

Serial numbers on watches are often quite tricky to understand. Plus, all watch brands have a different serial number system which further complicates it.

Serial numbers are numbers that are unique to each and every Omega timepiece and can be viewed as the ID of the watch. Through the Omega serial number, you can verify the watch’s authenticity, and you can also verify that the watch is not stolen. Another way that people use their serial number is to figure out how old the watch is. Normally, you look at the certificate to see when the watch was purchased, but most older watches tend to lose their certificates over time for obvious reasons, and so the serial number may thus the serial number is the only real way to identify when the watch was made.

In this article, we’re listing Omega Serial numbers and teach you more about how you can identify it.

How to identify the year of your Omega watch & serial numbers

Omega serial numbers

Where can you find your Omega watch’s serial number? Well, the first and most easy way to do it is to look at the certificate of your watch. All Omega watches come with a certificate, and on the certificate card, you’ll be able to read the serial number of the watch, as well as other interesting information.

The serial number is also engraved on your watch, so if you don’t have the certificate, or if you don’t have access to it, you can simply look at your watch. The serial number is normally located somewhere on the case back on the watch – often laser-etched. Sometimes, the serial number is so small that you will have to look carefully to find it.

If you have an older Omega, it may have the serial number on the inside of the watch. This means that you will have to open the case back to find the watch’s serial number.

The Omega serial number is a seven or eight-digit serial number which is etched into the watch during its production.

List of Omega serial numbers

Note: It is NOT possible to tell whether an Omega watch is real by only looking at the serial number.

To help you identify the year of which your Omega watch was produced, we’ve made a list of Omega serial numbers below. Please note that this list of Omega serial numbers is only for informational purposes. This is not meant to replace contacting Omega and getting full specific details.

If you want further information about your Omega watch than when it was made, such as ownership and confirm its authenticity, you need to contact Omega vintage information with your watch’s serial number.

Omega also has an extensive database of their vintage watches on their website, so if you need further information about your Omega timepiece, you can go to Omega Vintage watches information and identify your timepiece.

Note that all serial numbers may not be exact by the very year, but more so help you find the approximate year of your Omega. Also, you’ll find Omega serial numbers up to the year 2008 in this list. If you want information on modern Omega watches, it’s best to go to an authorized Omega dealer or contact Omega directly.

Omega serial numbers

Below you’ll find a list of Omega serial numbers but in a different format.

Omega using ETA movements

Omega started using ETA movements in some timepieces in the 1980s, and this complicates things when it comes to serial numbers. Here, it is more difficult to know the serial numbers and their exact dates. We’ve already listed them above, but tis will hopefully make it easier to read and distinguish your watch. This is why we present the ETA serial numbers separately.

  1. Hi, i couldn’t figure it out. Omega ladies sold 9ct gold. Inside back. 6011. Then on next line 511300.
    Vintage. Wind up

  2. My Omega has a serial number of HA-62-291 but it is not listed on your site.
    The watch is in need of repair and I am looking for a dealer near my location. Can you help please.

    1. Hi! You can find your nearest Omega retailer here:

  3. mine is like this
    111 0156
    what is that means , what is the manufacture date

    1. Hi!
      Do you have a modern Omega watch? In that case, it has a random serial number and it is thus not possible to tell the year of manufacture by looking at the serial number.

      Kind regards,
      Millenary Watches

  4. Hello,

    I stumbled across your site while researching an Omega serial/watch number. It is from the 1980s, but is there a way to match this movement number with the watch it was placed into?

    The number is from the COSC certificate which I have—along with what appears to be the boxes. I don’t know what watch it represents!

    Movement 49694778.

    Can you provide any guidance?

    Regards,

    John Willey

    1. Hi John,
      The number you provided is the serial number which is unique to the watch. Unfortunately, we are not able to give any details about the model with that number. You are, however, able to date the production year with the help of this resource:

      Kind regards,

  5. I have an Omega with the serial number 9959799. It also says waterproof on the back of the case and modele+depose, any info you have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
