For more than 170 years Omega has been at the forefront of exploration, whether to the moon or the depths of the ocean, they have been there. This great example of the classic early 1950’s Omega. Cased in steel and with a polished finish, the watch has rounded sides and shapely, down-turned lugs measuring 20mm in diameter and 26mm from lug to lug, petite so good for a smaller wrist. The silver dial is in good condition and has a mix of gold stick markers and Arabic numbers, and gold baton-shaped hands, all under an acrylic crystal. The steel crown is signed and winds up the movement. The watch is powered by a manual wind calibre 244 movement with 17 jewels and keeps good time. The serial number on the inside of the case is 2683-16 and dates the watch back to 1954. The bracelet has been replaced with a black leather strap with steel buckle and will fit a wrist of about 6.3” or 16cm approximately. The watch comes without the original box or papers but will be accompanied by a gift box. Water-resistance is not guaranteed so please do not use it near water.
