Our Take

Omega is one of those brands that everyone knows and loves, it’s been featured in many films and is even the official timekeeper of the Olympic games. This very attractive classic Omega dates back to 1961, it a midsize piece, originally a gents watch but these days may suit a lady too, measuring 34mm in diameter and 40mm from lug to lug. The gold plated case retains excellent definition with its plain round bezel and lugs with fine chamfers. Do note the plating wear on the case. The steel polished back pops in and is in good condition. The beige satin-finished dial is in great condition, it has raised polished baton indexes, matching baton hands and sweep seconds, all under an acrylic crystal. The gold plated crown is signed, functions to wind up the movement and set the time. The watch is powered by a calibre 285 manually wound movement, lever escapement, 17 jewels and keeps good time. The serial number is 14726 -1 SC. The bracelet has been replaced with a brown genuine leather bracelet and will fit a wrist of about 7.5” or 19cm approximately. The watch comes without the original box but will be accompanied by a gift box. Water-resistance is not guaranteed so please do not use it near water.

Notable wearers include Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy, Buzz Aldrin, Prince William and of course, James Bond. Best known for models like the Seamaster, Speedmaster and Moon watch.
