Here we have a 1930s Omega in remarkably fine condition. This features Breguet style numerals, blued steel hands, a minute track border and very clean enamel dial. This watch oozes character and with a 28mm is suitable for either a slimmer wristed man or a lady.
The dial is very clean with some very light fading to the edges of some numerals, which would suggest this being the original dial.
The case is gold filled, with a hinged back that opens to display a very clean, recently serviced movement.
The domed crystal is correct for this period of Omega and likely to be the original.
The seconds sub dial has a double track and numerals which you dont often see in later Omegas. The hands are a leaf shape with lollypop/cathedral style ends- another feature not seen on later Omegas also. This has short lugs with a fixed bar so has a black open ended black leather strap.
If you are after a pre 50's Omega, you wont find many examples in such good condition and seemingly unworn condition as this.
This watch uses the Omega manually wound 26.5, the movement found in most pre-war Omegas.
This has 15 jewels and a power reserve of 37 hours (may differ due to unknown service history)
This beats at a frequency of 18,000bph.
The condition is superb with a very clean dial, scratch free crystal and gold filled case with very minimal wear. The movement has just been serviced so is clean and keeping good time. The black strap is in unsed condition.
Water resistance not guaranteed and use in water certainly not recommended.
