1950 Omega Vintage Mens Midsize Watch, 14K Gold - Exquisite Case


Item No. 4584

During the high production output of its round watches in the 1940's and 50's, Omega built a relatively small number of fine rectangular-movement based timepieces. A handful of these models made for the U.S. market had exquisitely shaped form cases with more dramatic designs, and this model is one of our very favorites.

The movement is the company caliber 302 (formerly R 17,8) rectangular mechism that was a bit ahead of its time with its 21,600 BPH fast beat timing system. As with nearly all Omega 300 series mens watches from the era, by today's standards it appears midsize or unisex.

The dramatic, 14K gold case with its large, flared lugs and rolling sides is in excellent condition.

The silver dial is bright and beautiful, professionally restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America. The high-grade, Omega movement is clean and running strong.

We have fully serviced including installing a correct new-old-stock crystal that fits the waved profile of the case. After more than 65 years it is still keeping perfect time, running accurately within a few seconds per day.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.

If you're not afraid to wear a smaller watch, this beautiful dress Omega will serve as the perfect complement to your sporty Seamaster or Speedmaster model.
