Stainless Steel XXL 48,5mm OMEGA Skeleton SHARK & OCTOPUS Theme Customized Marriage Watch from c. 1909
XXL 48,5mm Stainless Steel Case.
Over 100 years old ! Still ticking loud and nicely.
Omega Movement Marine Life Customized from the beginning of the XXth Century.
This is a Marriage watch – nice combination of the brand new stainless steel UNBRANDED (not Omega) Case with a genuine Omega Movement from c. 1905-10 being used in a pocket watch back in the era. Hence the XXL size of the watch! (To give you an idea how big the watch is my wrist seen on the pictures is about 19cm).
The Omega Movement is a Skeleton one now. It has been customized and ornamented with a Shark and Octopus theme making this watch really special and unique.
The Watch hands are oxidized Blue and there is a red subseconds hand there.
Looks amazing on a wrist and pictures surely do not do its justice. Also catches an eye.
You have to understand those watches can be worn daily – no problem but they really require a good care because of their age. They are not shock proof as simply incabloc was not invented yet back in the era, it is good to keep them away from water and moist. The both crystals are mineral (not sapphire ones) so if you drop or smash such a watch it is more than likely the crystal will crack. The Balance wheel axe can bend too due to a huge shock so if you’re careless about your watches it is better to go for something modern rather than a 100 years old watch movement.
Movement is running strong and keeping good time.
Recently fully serviced.
It does require some strength in your fingers to wind those but they really tick loud and nicely. The accuracy depending on many factors +/-2 or 3 minutes per 24 hours. You cannot expect modern watches accuracy from those movements.
Also because of the Movement being skeletonized those watches require your eye to get used to them when reading the time.
Amazing and unique design though!
The strap is a high quality brand new genuine leather one (not Omega).
