This Watch

We have here a very stylish and simple all original Omega gold dress watch.  The solid 9ct gold, solid 3 piece 12mm thick case is an English case and is fully hallmarked.  At 34mm, it is the perfect dress watch.  The unusually simple off white original dial and round shape shouts 1960s minimalism along with a nod to the 1950s with pointed hand and mixed Arabic numerals. Again typical designs of the 1960s.  Inside is the mechanical manual wind Omega caliber 520, fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired the watch on a simple black lizard grain strap but for summer vibes it looks great on anything.

A subtle patina effect on the original silvered dial adds another level of attraction to this fun and interesting watch! Raised numerals and stick batons, along with gilt, sword hour and minute hands, provide a sense of symmetry that is a must-have on a dress watch.  The dial is signed simply 'Omega' with the famous Omega logo at 12 o'clock  This is exactly the type of clean and crisp design you want from a transition 1950s to 60s  Omega.


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.
