A classic 68 year old Omega fourteen carat solid gold gents manual watch in great overall condition, running strongly and keeping time. The case and dial, which displays bow shaped numerals, presents very well indeed. Recently fitted with a new "IW Suisse" genuine lizard calf strap and a new crystal, this fabulous watch is ready to wear and enjoy. It is signed three times on the dial, case and movement.
Case: 14 carat solid gold in very good condition, presenting beautifully on the wrist. The case is signed "Omega" on the inside of the rear cover and hallmarked as 14 carat solid gold on the outside. It measures approximately 33.5mm across excluding the crown and 41 mm from lug to lug. The case shows the inevitable signs of careful and probably infrequent use over the years but absolutely no signs of abuse, dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to draw to your attention. Please note that there is no presentation engraving on the rear of the case which is unusual as so many sold gold watches from this period were presentation watches.
Dial: finished in satin silver with applied gold coloured bow and diamond shaped batons marking the hours. The dial is signed “Omega Swiss made” and bears Omega emblem in applied gold. The Dauphin hands are in good shape and the crystal is clean and clear. The dial has just been returned from restoration to a very high standard, looking as it did when new.
Movement: Omega cal. 371 manual movement, running strongly and keeping time. It winds and sets smoothly. The serial number dates the watch to c1950.
Strap: generic brown genuine lizard calf (not grain) strap. Attached to the watch it measures approximately 210 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
