This Watch

This pretty cocktail watch has a silvered dial with ‘mirror’ finished foil numerals and typical 1940s leaf-shaped hands. The circular steel case is centrally-set with elaborate, solid, t-shaped lugs. The watch is accompanied by its original, Red omega leather clam presentation case with gold tooled decoration, the silk lined interior details the omega logo! In lovely overall condition, the dial has very light and even oxidation to the surface. The steel period high quality patented Bonklip steel bracelet will fit all wrists. In theory we could fit a cord or a leatherette strap.

Extra Points


Founded by Louis Brandt in 1848, Omega started out as La Generale Watch Co., an unassuming, but international business.   It wasn't until 1885, when the company had been taken over by Louis' sons, that the first mass-produced caliber, the Labrador, was released.  By 1903, the company had renamed itself Omega and only two years later were they the official timekeepers at many sporting events across Switzerland.  Omega stepped onto an international stage in 1932 as the official timekeepers at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, the first of over 20 Olympic Games. Omega were one of the 12 companies, now known as the Dirty Dozen, commissioned to produce watches for the British Military during the Second World War.  One of Omega's most iconic watches, the Seamaster, was introduced in 1948 to celebrate their 100th anniversary.  Over 70 years later, it is still one of Omega's best selling watches.  Omega made headlines in 1962 when Wally Schirra wore the Speedmaster as part of NASA's first crewed spaceflight programme, making the Speedmaster the first watch to enter space.  

For a watch of this age, we would recommend 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 the watch away from magnets such as computers, phones, speakers etc.

This watch has been fully serviced in our on-site workshop and comes with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.

What we think

This watch is a stunning example of a proper ladies dress cocktail watch that would also work beautifully as a dress watch.  If you're looking for an affordable, attractive and reliable vintage watch, you'd be pushed to find a better example.  Perfect for a vintage-watch newbie or seasoned collector and it can be switched from bracelet to strap if desired and on request.
