Please note there are reflections on the dial!
This is a stunning Omega with its original black dial and fancy lugs that stands out and punches above its weight when on the wrist. It has the look of a very well cared for watch that has seen very little use and not been exposed to daylight!
The dial has not been refinished and still retains its black colour in full saturation. The same with the gold coloured Arabic hour numerals. It has a small seconds sunken sub-dial at 6 that has a circular Guilloche finish. The original black hands have lost some of their luminous material.
The fancy lugs are a striking feature of this watch and help it achieve wrist presence for what otherwise would be a small watch. The diameter of the watch excluding the crown is 30.6mm. The stainless steel case is in excellent condition with no dents and just micro scratches. The bezel edges are well defined through lack of use. Inside the case back it is fully marked Omega.
As you would expect the Omega 26.5 SOB movement is in exceptionally good condition and this can clearly be seen in the pictures.
It comes with a brand new black Italian leather strap.
