Estimate: $800.00 –  $1,200.00

Rare and unusual vintage gents 14k yellow gold Omega dress wristwatch with fancy lugs.  Silver Omega dial with applied arrow head markers and sub seconds dial at the 6 o’clock.  Swiss made, mechanical manual wind movement.  Comes on a generic leather strap with a generic tang buckle.  Approximate diameter is 22mm x 26mm from top lug to bottom lug.  The case and crystal make this Omega model very unusual.  The “wave” shaped crystal follows the curves of the lugs and case.

The dial has some discoloration and spotting towards the edges and the hour markers have patina which can be expected due to age.  The crystal has a small chip on the edge next to the top left lug and bottom right lug.  The case has areas of patina.  The watch has superficial scratches due to normal wear and age.  Overall condition is good.  Running at the time of inspection, however not checked for accuracy nor water resistance/proofness.  An overhaul is always recommended for used watches.

In 1848, Louis Brandt founded La Generale Watch Co. in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.  In 1903, he changed the name to Louis Brandt et Frere – Omega Watch & Co which was changed once more to the current Omega SA in 1982.  Throughout it’s rich history, Omega was chosen as the official watch for Britain’s Royal Flying Corps in 1917, the US Army in 1918, and most famously for NASA in 1969.  Some of Omega’s most well known models are – Omega Speedmaster Professional, Omega Speedmaster, Omega Seamaster, Omega Constellation, Omega De Ville, Omega Dynamic, Omega Flightmaster, and Omega Railmaster.  Not as widely known, Omega even created a Tourbillon in 1947.
