Omega 10 carat gold filled gentlemans' automatic wristwatch manufactured in 1965, in great original un-restored condition. This model houses the cal. 550 movement. The case and factory original dial present very well on the wrist and the movement is running strongly and keeping time. The watch is signed four times, on the dial, case, crown and movement. Vintage Omega watches are now rapidly increasing in value. And when you look at the price of a new Omega watches, which in my opinion lack both the style, quality and robustness of vintage timepieces, it is little wonder why. They are currently less than a third of the price of a new model, should continue to run reliably for many years to come and the style is far superior in my view.
Dial: factory original, finished in satin silver and signed "Omega Automatic Swiss Made" with applied gold coloured batons and Arabic numerals marking the hours. The hands are in good shape and the crystal is clean and clear.
Case: 10 carat gold filled in very good condition, measuring approximately 34 mm across, excluding the signed crown and 41 mm from lug to lug. It is signed Omega on the inside of the back cover. The case shows the inevitable signs of responsible use over the years but absolutely no signs of abuse and other than a tiny ding near the edge of the back cover, no dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to point out to you.
Movement: high grade cal. 550 automatic movement with 17 jewels and adjusted to two positions, running strongly and keeping time. The serial number dates the watch to 1965.
Strap: fitted with a new old stock Speidel brown leather strap which attached to the watch measures approximately 205 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
