The three "Ps"! A pocket watch with great patina and elegant Pontife hands. This watch has it all.
Manufactured in the early 1940s, this creation came out of the Swiss Omega factory in the height of WW2. It displays all that was great in the design as the industry moved more into wrist watches. Exceptionally slim case at 9mm (including the acrylic) with bevelled edges to both front and back. Art deco bow. Uncluttered dial with finely printed Arabic numerals and the most simple hands you could imagine - Pontife hands. The copper tone dial has aged well with its tiny marks and beautiful patina. Railroad track outer. The small seconds is at 6 and is within a sunken sub-dial that has a circular Guilloche finish. Signed Omega. The crown is worn and I would suggest that it's a replacement.
The stainless steel case is in excellent condition with no visible dints or scratches, just a little patchiness on the rear. Inside the case back it is signed Omega and the watch is run by the Omega calibre 37.5 T1.
A lovely mid-size Art Deco pocket watch.
Please note the pictures of the watch is a little over exposed. In reality the copper tone is more dense and richer. Please also be aware there are reflections in the acylic.
