This Omega Officer was one of three models purchased by the Swedish army between 1940 and 1942. This one is the silvered dial variant in a CK2299 stainless steel case.
The original silvered dial has aged over the years and developed an interesting patina. It is signed Omega Officer with the classic Officer script together with the Omega logo. The hours are represented by Arabic numerals with a railroad track outer for the minutes. It has blued steel hands possibly still filled with the original radium. There is a small seconds sunken sub-dial at 6 with a Guilloche finish. The crown is original.
The case is stainless steel and in good condition. The case back is screw fit and is marked as expected with Antimagnetisk, Vattentat, Stotskyddad and Omega Swiss.
Inside the watch is run by a very clean example of the Omega calibre 26.5 T3. It runs well and keeps good time.
The diameter of the watch (excluding the crown) is just over 30mm. This is small by today's standards but average for a military watch of this era. Look at the picture to see how it sits on my (small) wrist.
The watch comes with a lightly used brown Hirsch Osiris strap.
