A particulaly attractive pocket watch from Omega dated to the early 1930s Art Deco period. Gently aged with an even patina over the past 85 years this watch still displays the best of its two tone dial. The outer sector is golden metalic and, for a pocket watch, boasts fine, rare cross hairs. Beautiful blued steel Plume hands. Small seconds sub dial at 6 with its own golden metalic outer and Guilloche finish. The dial inner circle has a marbled effect patina. Painted black Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12. The crown assembly and crown are original. The crystal is in good condition. The video will help you see the metalic finish of the metalic golden track on the dial
The stainless still case has minor scratches with one light dint on the radius at 10. The hinged case-back shuts with a very strong snap, is marked Omega, Swiss Made and Acier Staybright (stainless steel) on the inside. Also there are a number of watchmakers scratchings showing that it has a service history. The hinged inner stainless steel dust cover also snaps shut tightly. Its serial number matches that of the case-back suggesting that they were always together.
The watch is manually wound and is powered by the Omega 37.6 L.15.P calibre which first came out in 1928. It's also in great condition. Signed Omega together with a serial number that dates it from 1929 to 1934.
Overall this is an excellent Art Deco pocket watch that has been well cared for over the years.
Fully serviced including new main spring.
