This Watch

We have here a stunning, solid 9ct gold Omega Automatic Date, reference 366.5461 from 1974.  The champagne-coloured, original dial has aged nicely and has elegant, onyx-type and gilt, stick baton markers and black and gilt stick hands.  The dial is signed 'Omega, Automatic' with the famous Omega logo at 12 o'clock and a framed date window at 3 o'clock.

The solid 9ct gold, 34.5mm, monocoque/front-loading case has its original, Omega-signed glass.  Inside is the automatic, Omega caliber 1012, fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've kept this watch on its original Milanese-type, solid 9ct gold bracelet, which will fit a wrist just over 7 inches (we can confirm the size if interested), but the watch looks great on anything!  The watch also comes with its original box, something that is very rare for a watch of this age!



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.

The watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with our 12 months, non-waterproof service cover.
