1938 Omega dress watch
A beautiful Omega dress watch.
The dial is champagne coloured with a patina that appears slightly more gold/orange in tone. This is quite a heavy patina, however it doesn’t detract from the watches beauty and matches the case quite nicely.
The dial is signed with Omega and the Omega symbol at 12. This is not worn, but one scratch passes through the M.
The dial is marked with Arabic numerals on the hour markers. This is an unusual dial as the 12, 3 and 9 are double the size of the other Arabic numerals. This suits the watch as it helps balance the dial, with the sub second dial normally taking most of the focus on the face of a watch. The attention being brought to 12, 3 and 9 is appealing.
All of the hands are beautifully thermally blued. They are all original as they fit the era and they also fit the minute and second track perfectly.
The case is marked inside as a gold plated, Dennison Moon case. There are no signs of wear on the case.
The movement is functioning well, with the regulator in a neutral position. It appears very clean.
Omega 26.5T1 calibre movement, 15 jewels, 18000 frequency, 37 hour power reserve, bimetallic screw balance, Breguet hairspring.
