On offer is a rare Omega chronograph in 18k solid gold from 1956 including the original box with outer carton.
The watch is in excellent original condition. The light cream-colored dial with its fine, applied gold indexes is evenly aged and has an unmistakable vintage charm. The finely printed tachymeter scale above the minute scale is still perfectly legible even after almost 70 years. All hands are still original and classic in the style of the 1950s.
The beautiful yellow gold case with its rectangular pushers and elegantly curved lugs is tightly sealed with a pressure cover. The gold hallmarks for the gold alloy - 18k / 0.750 - can be found on the inside, as well as another gold stamp on the edge of one side of the case opposite the original Omega crown.
The watch is powered by a spotlessly clean original Omega hand-wound caliber 320, a rare column-wheel chronograph.
The watch runs flawlessly and is very easy to wind and set. All chrono functions have been tested and work perfectly.
Based on the movement serial number 15146020, the date of manufacture can be dated to 1956.
The watch comes on a brown Eidechs bracelet with the original Omega buckle.
Unfortunately, the watch can only be shipped with this strap to eu countries. Due to the Washington Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, it is not possible to export genuine reptile straps outside the EU.
However, we are happy to offer you alternative straps.
Even the rare and highly sought-after original Omega box is still available and will be sent together with our certificate of authenticity.
This Omega Gold Chronograph was already a particularly valuable watch in the 1950s.
Today it is a rare collector's item, and although completely suitable for everyday use, almost too good to wear every day.....
