An overview of Metal Codes used by Omega for their wristwatches
Steve Waddington - December 2002

The following data is copied from an Omega booklet titled :-

Catalogue habillement
Dressing components catalogue
Catálogo de fornituras de aderezo

The version I have is dated 1993, was issued in Germany & is printed in 4 languages. ( French, English, German & Spanish).
Since the "working" language of the watch industry is French & most of us "surfers" can speak some English, I have listed these 2 languages.
I am too lazy to list the others, Sorry !

The data is listed, as in the catalogue. ( e.g. DG & DH are indentical). I have have NOT deliberately changed anything. I have even split the description lines EXACTLY as in the catalogue.

There are some "funnies" in here. e.g. why is "gris" translated as "white" everywhere except for the SC code where it is "grey".
It is unclear to me whether the line between BG & BJ is missing it's code, or whether it "belongs" to the BG line. I think it's missing it's code ( BH or BI ?).
I also find the KD text very ambiguous.
