There are many expensive watches and many beautiful watches, but sometimes you find a very special watch:

This Omega Automatic "Square" from 1958 definitely falls into the latter category:

First introduced in 1955, the reference 3971 housed Omega's first rotor-wound automatic movement, the Calibre 471, and this milestone in watchmaking for Omega was the impetus for many other successful rotor-wound automatic models.

Initially only available in 18k yellow gold, a stainless steel version soon followed. Collectors call this model simply "Square" or "Omega Automatic".

The Omega "Square" in stainless steel offered here is in absolutely excellent condition!

The case is free of deep scratches or dents!

The silver, simple and at the same time very elegant dial is in perfect condition. With applied hour markers and silver applied Omega logo. ( Swiss Made at 6 o'clock )

The plexiglass is in very good condition with no deep scratches or cracks! The Omega logo is visible in the middle.

The red gold plated caliber 471 automatic movement is in excellent condition! The winding and setting of the hands via the original Omega crown with Omega logo works as smooth as butter. The automatic elevator also works, of course.

The bracelet is still the original grey bracelet from 1958!

Additionally the original box from 1958 is included! Even the box is in very good condition.

If you are looking for a rare and historically relevant wristwatch of the Omega brand, which is also in very good condition and represents a real time capsule from 1958, so to speak, you certainly won't go wrong with this watch!
