1952 Omega 36mm Model 2639 in a Substantial Stainless Steel Screw-Back Case All Original and Unpolished

This Watch

One of Omega's most robust vintage manual dress watches from the 50s era. These cases really are built like tanks!  While under the hood it's powered by the tried and tested Omega in-house caliber 266 of the the famous cal 30t2 family.  Another sought-after vintage Omega due to its totally and ridiculously amazing original dial!  With a beautiful, even, eggshell patina.  Mixed Arabic numerals and batons at 9-12-3 positions and notice the lume points throughout the markers.  A highly attractive dial with an unusually simple and understated appeal, while still possessing amazing design.  Subsidiary seconds dial, which is also in-bedded.  The dial has a soft even patina giving no doubt on originality.  Two-piece, screw-back, fully-signed Omega case with armored crystal.  This is a more substantial piece at 36mm with drilled spring bar holes for extra sturdiness

What we think

Another piece where the pictures do the talking.  This really is a classic 1950s example. The pictures only giving a feel for how attractive it really is on the wrist.  We opted for a heavy brown lizard grain leather but strap options are endless.  This one needs to be seen to be believed, its about as good a vintage, preowned model 2639 Omega as you will find.  All original and a very attractive patina to the quite unique dial. Fully serviced by us in our on site workshop and running strongly.   Perfect for the vintage watch newbie or even the hardened collector or anyone in fact.
