Item No. 5345
In contrast to the larger size of many of today's high end wristwatches, the majority of vintage era wristwatches possessed a much smaller profile. A notable exception to this trend were Omega's full size watches with 30mm movements.
For the watches with manually wound movements, which constitute the majority, they used calibers that had always started with the famous 30 T2 movement, whose reputation for reliability and accurate timekeeping landed it a role serving the critical timing needs of the world's Armed Forces during World War II. As time progressed they then often added upgrades to the movement such as a shock protection system, additional jewels, and other modifications - as is the case with the Cal. 266 mechanism found in this watch.
The watch measures 35mm without the crown - one mm smaller than a Rolex Datejust. The movement is clean and keeping extremely accurate time.
We have fitted the watch with a new crocodile strap and new Omega buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee for all of our watches. If you are in any way unsatisfied with the watch we will fully refund the purchase price anytime within 7 days after the watch has been received. Our goal is to exceed our client's expectations throughout the buying experience.
