    Can anyone help identify this logo from the back of a 60s omega seamaster (the pyramid thing, not the seamonster)

    Looks like a varient of the Afghan Airforce Roundel, of which there are several: Afghan National Army Air Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    the two letters each side of the pyramid being "alif", whilst the lower letter under the base f the pyramid looks like a simplified "ha". I am most likely very wrong.

    Have you tried the Omega Vintage Watch Database? Ω OMEGA Vintage Watches Information

    edited to add: I had thought it might be a Fraternity Emblem; Delta Sigma Phi have an emblem of a pyramid enclosed by a circle, but there is no fraternity that I know of that called Iota Zeta Iota

    Cheers Rampant,
    I had guessed it might be Afghan as the pyramid in a circle bit looked familiar. I am confused by the lettering though, as I don't recognise the 'backwards Z' from any of the pictures and I can't see it in any alphabet I know.

    I did contact Omega some weeks ago when I bought the watch, but they haven't responded yet.

    That's what's puzzling me, I gave up searching for roundels and pyramid designs and am now patiently scrawling through various alphabetic and numerical scripts and so far nobody appears to have used the reverse Z as a symbol ever!
     
  5. Utterly wrong post.
     
  6. How and where did you contact the manufacturer?
