1956 Omega Vintage Mens Classic Mid Century Dress Watch, Automatic - 14K Gold Filled


Item No. 5150

Today's offering showcases this classic mid-century Omega mens automatic mens watch.

It is powered by one of Omega's well-regarded 400/500 series of movements that powered models like the Seamaster and Constellation. These mechanisms were the bi-directional winding automatic movements made to replace the company's early uni-directional winding "bumper" mechanisms.

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 its features:

  • Very well made caliber 490 shock-resistant movement with automatic winding system
  • Elegant styling
  • Classic vintage dial with dart markers

It is fully Omega down to the dial, hands and original winding crown and is in gorgeous true expertly restored condition. The dial is a perfect refinishing and the printing could pass as Omega factory done to the naked eye.

The movement is very clean and has just been fully serviced. For the finishing touch we have installed a new leather strap 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.
