1948 Omega Vintage Mens Mid-Century Dress Watch - 14K Gold


Item No. 6502

Today's offering showcases this very cool and classically styled mid-century mens watch. Elegant and precise, it features a handsome case, great looking original numeral dial, and fine handwound Omega movement.

I really like the markers and hand combination on this watch coupled with the small guilloche seconds.

It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands, and cabochan winding crown.

Its solid 14K gold case is near mint. It has one light indention in the case back that's not visible when it's being worn. On the wrist it presents as just short of mint.

The original dial is in excellent condition with fairly milding aging. It has warmed to a light sepia tone, giving it a true vintage look.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
