Gold Capped and stainless steel.
Here we have a fine example of a pre 50s Omega automatic. Many of the gent's watches produced around this period were around the 30-33mm mark, however this one is 36mm so for it's time was a very large watch. The dial is original withl thin leaf hands and applied dagger hour markers, both in a rose gold tone matching the case. There are some light ageing spots and a faint, even patina.
The case is possibly the most appealing aspect of this watch, as mentioned it sits at a relatively large 36mm with a rose gold capped case (bezel and lugs). Gold capping is where a thin shell of gold is placed ontop of the steel. This means it rarely wears through like plated watches tend to.
The fancy lugs add a very dressy feel to the case.
The case back is a stainless steel screw down and appears to still have the original black seal in, which we have left in there in order for a tighter seal when screwed up (though water resistance is never guaranteed with vintage watches).
The crown is a gold tone and not Omega signed which is correct for this period.
The crystal has had a light hand polish so shows no obvious scratches or marks.
The movement is a Cal 332 'Bumper' so does not rotate fully but bumps off of two springs opposite eachother.
We have fitted a new Hirsch black leather strap.
This watch uses the Omega Cal 332 Automatic.
This has 17 jewels and a 42h power reserve.
Frequency of 19800bph.
This watch is in overall excellent condition considering it's age. The dial shos light ageing though no damage. The crystal and case have minimal wear and the movement has been fully serviced so is clean and keeping excellent time.
