The Medicus was introduced in 1937 as the first Omega wristwatch with a sweep seconds hand. Named the Medicus as it was marketed towards the medical profession who would benefit from a more visible seconds hand when taking a pulse. This Doctor's watch, at 29mm, is normal for the era but would be considered very small by today's standards but it sits very well on my small wrist as you can see in the pictures.
The watch is in exceptionally good condition. The dial has achieved a good patina over the years which compliments the gold case. Arabic numerals and a railroad track minute index with each minute (or second) further sub-divided into 5 - a true technical dial. Signed with Omega, the Omega logo and Swiss Made, all in black. Gorgeous blued steel Plume hands whilst the sweep seconds hand has the signature counterbalance.
The 9k gold case was made by arguably the best English case maker Dennison. Fully hallmarked as you would expect. Excellent condition with only a small dent on the case beck.
Inside is the Omega-made 23.4 SC calibre.
The watch comes with a new genuine leather non-Omega strap.
