1940s Omega dress watch ref F6212, 14k gold filled, serviced cal 342 Bumper automatic.
This Reference F6212 dates to 1949 and has a recently serviced Omega Bumper Automatic calibre 342.
The dial has a heavily patinated Brown colouration. This is a very interesting and one of a kind dial. The mix of raised gold tone Arrow head markers, as well as the gold tone Arabic 9,12,3 and Omega logo, create an excellent depth. These aspects stand out particularly well against the darkened patinated dial.
The gold filled case is in excellent condition and the watch has a beautiful and fancy Omega signed crown.
There is a personal engraving to the case back.
Overall this is a neat dress piece for a vintage collector.
