Omega's famous caliber T17, with 15 jewels and lateral lever escapement, sits in a rectangular, Art Deco style, Staybrite case. Staybrite is the name of a steel alloy containing 0.2% carbon, 18% chromium and 8% nickel. It is a stainless material that takes a fine polish and was therefore often used for making watch cases. It is probably the type of stainless steel that has been most widely used by watch companies. The T17 caliber is also enclosed within a anti-magnetic dust cover.
Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.
The watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with our 12 months, non-waterproof service cover.
For a watch of this age, we would recommended that it is considered for occasional use, once or twice a week. This is largely because watches of this age weren't built to deal with modern life. They do not have dust proofing, shock absorption and are easily magnetised. Please do try and keep they watch away from magnets such as computers, phones, speakers etc.
What we think
If you know me, you know I adore vintage "Tank" style watches and this Omega ticks all the boxes for me! It is beautifully sized on the wrist, the dial is original and features all the charm you'd hope for on a watch that's 90+ years old. This is an elegant watch that looks great on both males and females. It has a subtle elegance that modern watches struggle to recreate.
