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 344 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
- Fully Omega and presents as beautifully restored
The watch presents as beautifully restored. It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands and signed winding crown. The dial has just been expertly restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America.
As part of the restoration our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. For the finishing touch we have equipped the watch with 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, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
