This Watch

We have here a classic and understated Omega manual wind dress watch from 1952.  The dial has a stunning mother of pearl effect and a mix of gilt arrow markers and Arabic numerals at 12, 2, 4, 8 and 10 o'clock.  Subsidiary seconds sit at 6 o'clock and the watch is simply signed 'Omega' with the famous Omega logo at 12 o'clock.  This gives the watch the timeless symmetry and subtlety that you want from a dress watch.

The 9ct yellow gold, three piece case measures 33mm and is a comfortable and elegant wear.  Inside is the mechanical manual wind Omega caliber 265, fully serviced by us and running strongly. We've paired this watch on brown leather strap but it looks great dressed up on black too.  The watch also comes with its original 9ct gold buckle, something that is very rare for a watch of 70+ years!

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.  

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

What we think

If you're looking for an affordable, attractive and reliable vintage dress watch, you'd be pushed to find a better example.  We love the original dial and how its ages over time, it seems to change in different light and looks fabulous. The perfect watch for a first-time vintage watch buyer or a seasoned collector.  And, incredibly rarely, this watch comes with its original 9ct gold buckle!
