Quite a beautiful piece... and a wonderful one to wear.
This little Omega came complete to me from out west near Salt Lake. I'm not too sure on the history of it but what I can say is that whomever owned if before took great care of it. Its a very nice little 17 jewel watch, and that thing is damn accurate even before it was cleaned and serviced! Whilst most of Omegas inventory was being sent to support the war effort, it looks like this one scooted through as a nice gentlemans pocket watch. Looks like it was placed in this nice little octagonal case some time later, but it doesnt hurt the look of it too much, and its got a very nice and clean dial with no cracks.
