Exceptionally large for an Omega watch of the 1940s this jumbo certainly has great wrist presence even by today's watch standards.
The dial has patina and age-related marks, just as you would expect from a 70-year-old watch. Gold painted numbers alternate with applied hour batons. The outer minute index is also marked in numbers at 5-second intervals. Gold coloured Dauphine hands and sweep seconds hand. Signed Omega in black. The acrylic is marked. Genuine Omega signed crown but probably not original.
The case is gold plated to a very significant 80 microns thickness. It shows no signs of rubbing through however there are some pretty severe marks on the case-back.
Inside, the case-back is fully marked Omega and the movement is the highly accredited Omega 283 calibre. In excellent condition.
Fitted with a tan strap which is probably not leather.
