Large Omega Geneve with Cross Hairs and Subsidary Seconds in Stainless Steel Model 2748 Circa 1954
Have a question?
Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.
A classic and elegant dress watch from Omega with a stylish, symmetrical, two-tone dial, complete with cross hairs which echo the markings on the subsidiary seconds dial. The bold hour markers are evocative of timeless 1950s design.
A stainless steel, 3-piece clip on case houses a high-grade caliber 266 movement.
There's a small and hardly noticeable mark on the top left lug. It isn't a hallmark on a stainless steel case (although you could be fooled into thinking it's white gold or platinum!) - it's a Portuguese import mark! These import marks were made as a way of easily viewing if taxes had been paid on a timepiece. It isn't a dent, it's a cool, little fact with a good story!
This watch has been fully serviced by our on-site workshop and comes with our 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.
What we think
The creamed dial is in such good condition its hard to believe that it hasn't been restored!
We love the larger size of this Omega. Coupled with it's elegance, it's definitely a dress watch that is well suited to modern fashions.
