The late 1940s saw the transition of some of Omega watch designs away from the military look to a more"dressy" appearance associated with the following decades. Indeed this watch reflects both periods with its military influenced lumed hands, batons and Arabic numerals within a "dressy" style case.
The pictures show just how well the overall design works. There's some minor spotting on the dial as you would expect and the overall appearance is a delight. Minor scratches to the crystal. Non signed crown (manual wind).
The case is typically Dennison - ie the best of British! Solid 9k gold with minor scratches. Fully hallmarked inside.
The watch runs on the Omega calibre 265, a derivitive of the legendary 30T2 and the mainstay of Omega watch production for 25 years. It really was that good!
Comes with a lightly used dark brown non-Omega leather strap.
