Description

We offer for sale this extremely rare and uncommon stainless steel Omega Automatic wristwatch manufactured in 1944. The first automatic Omega movement was produced in 1943, so this particular timepiece was made in the 1st year of Omega’s Automatic watches production !
There aren’t many remaining today in such exceptionnally original overall preserved condition, this makes it thus a highly desirable collectible watch.

The watch is 3 times signed Omega: Case, dial and movement (Omega crowns were not signed at that time).

The perfect case is in stainless steel with a back cover safety ring. More, the never repolished or rebrushed case makes it a truly a collector’s watch. This scarce model can be considered as a landmark in Omega’s history because the lugs style are the ancestor of the famous Omega Constellation « Pie Pan ».

The magnificent two-tone dial is in original excellent condition and has not been refinished (repainted or redone).

All parts of this timepiece are original and made by Omega (crown included). The watch has just been serviced, all functions operates perfectly and comes with a 1 year warranty.

The genuine handmade leather band is new.

All unretouched high definition photographs were taken in daylight, without artificial light thus what you see is exactly what you get.

Case serial number : 23XX/5 (final numbers kept confidential for customers privacy).
Movement serial number : 102XXXXX (which dates the production to the year 1944, final numbers kept confidential for customers privacy).

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
