As everyone knows, the “Quartz Crisis” brought a heavy shock to the Swiss watchmaking industry and many watch brands had been broken by the coming of quartz movement. But Omega chose to change itself and three collections equipped with quartz movement had been launched in 1970.
One of the models was a perfect fake Omega Constellation Ref.196.005 with quartz movement which featured a real gold dial. So the price was very high which was 5,400 francs. It was comparable to a brand new car of Volkswagen at that time.
With the development of the technology, more and more timepieces with strange shapes had been produced. For example, this gold bracelet copy Omega Time Computer TC2 featured a special LED digital dial. It had been favored by numerous men and even women once it was launched.
