|Movement:||Manual Winding Cal 360|
|Case material:||9kt Gold|
Here we have a splendid example of a 40s Omega housing the manual winding cal 360 and a running seconds subdial at 6.
The dial has aged to a warm caramel colour. The outer ring has a different shade and is particulularly attractive when held up in different lighting.
Unlike the later Omegas which used mainly applied markers, this has printed Roman numerals, which adds to the character of the watch.
The case has not been polished though is in overall very good condition, with delicate shaped lugs and a slim profile.
The crown, is not signed though Omega did not start using signed crowns until the late 40s so it is possible this is original. This winds, pulls out and sets time perfectly well.
The case back is hallmarked as can be seen in the photographs.
The movement is clean and keeping excellent time.
The case measures 30mm excluding the crown (so would not look out of place on a ladies wrist as well as a gents).
We have fitted this with a new crocodile grain brown leather strap.
Water resistance not guaranteed.
This is displayed at the Bridge House Antiques Market though we are also happy to post!
