1955 Omega Vintage Mens Handwound Watch with Explorer Dial - 14K Gold


Item No. 8169

Today's offering showcases this striking example of one of Omega's mid-century vintage dress watches.

It features a classic round case, distinctive black dial, and very fine and uncommon Omega caliber 410 handwound movement.

The centerpiece of the watch is its "Explorer style" dial with Arabic numerals for the primary hours.

Its case presents as excellent condition with the top left lug previously replaced. Otherwise it presents as mint.

Its very cool and desirable dial has just been meticulously restored - its gilt printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

As part of the restoration the movement has been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmaker.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new calfskin leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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

A more than four and a half decade old Omega that presents like new on the wrist!
