Two of the qualities often associated with Omega watches are technological innovation and style. The company's innovative spirit was showcased in the company's famous 340/350 series movements - mechanisms that Omega called on to power the first series of both the Seamaster and Constellation lines, and one of which powers the watch showcased here.
Around mid-century Omega watch buyers who wanted a dress watch with the same performance as the company's early sportier lines could opt for an Omega like this one. Here are some of the watch's features:
- Caliber 351 shock-resistant movement with Omega's first automatic winding system. It is wound by the oscillation of a large "hammer" rotor
- Elegant and classic styling
- Classic and cool silver dial with 1/5 second markings for precision timing
It is in gorgeous restored condition and is fully Omega down to the hour and minute hands and signed winding crown. The dial has been restored by one of the leading experts in North America. And the case presents as mint.
As part of the restoration our watchmaker has just freshly serviced the movement. For the finishing touch we have installed a new high quality crocodile band making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
