This Watch

This  Rare Jumbo Omega, coming in at 38mm, is really quite rare for a watch of this age! We love its large, 18ct three piece, solid yellow gold fully signed omega case, which houses the impeccable Omega manual wind, workhorse caliber 265 movement.

The silvered dial has a gorgeous, even patina, expected with a watch of this age, and gives the timepiece original character.  Applied gilt all Arabic numerals adorn the edge of the dial, with a printed, minute track just on the edge.  The watch also has gilt hour and minute hands and large subsidiary seconds.

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. It was only a few years before the Speedmaster became the official chronograph for the American space missions and was worn by Buzz Aldrin as well as the Apollo 13 crew. Omega are still involved with NASA and have been instrumental in creating vital pieces of equipment for space exploration. Omega's reputation continued to soar in the 1990s with Omega Seamaster worn by Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. As well as post-1995 James Bonds, Omega has been worn by the likes of Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy, Prince William, Rory McIlroy, Ringo Starr, Michael Phelps, Cindy Crawford and George Clooney.

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

What we think

We absolutely adore the symmetry of this dial, it gives the watch a very understated level of sophistication.  We've tried it on a number of different straps and it's just one of those watches that can wear anything! It does come up bigger than most vintage watches of the same era and stands tall next to modern watches and demands, but both genders can definitely pull it off! I love it
