A watch inspired by the aesthetics of the watches delivered to the British forces during World War II and worn by the Royal Air Force pilots, was intended to appeal to a younger consumer and available in two versions. One with central seconds and date function —powered by the automatic Omega calibre 1108 based off the ETA 2890A2— and the other with a 30-minute chronograph —powered by the Omega 1138 which is the same as the 1108 plus a Dubois-Depraz 2030 chrono module. Both options were presented on vintage brown straps or fitted with a stainless steel bracelet. In reality, is hard to believe how this beautiful military inspired chronograph got discontinued less than three years after its launch. It is estimated that no more than 8,000 third generation Omega Dynamics where ever sold.

The Omega Dynamic Chronograph ref. 5240.50 is fitted with a 38.1 mm satin brushed finished stainless steel case, 30-minute chronograph, pump chrono pushers, screw-down crown, solid case back with sand blasted finish and one of the most beautiful matte black dials that Omega has ever released.

Its beautiful matte black dial features Breguet style Arabic numerals with luminescent material, a running seconds register at 3, a 30-minute chrono register at 9 o'clock with yellow accents on the 3, 6 and 9 minute markers and a yellow hand, a white minute/second/1/5 of a second chapter ring with yellow accents, yellow chrono seconds hand and sword military hands with luminescent material. The registers on the dial are slightly recessed to add dimension and greater depth of field. Regardless of the many elements on the dial, this dial is well-balanced and doesn't feel cluttered or busy at all. The sapphire crystal on the watch treated with anti-reflective treatment on the inside allows for excellent visibility and full appreciation of the dial. The look of the crystal is very similar to a plexiglass.
