A wonderful story on the rebirth of an old Omega:

 

Like the sad story of so many pocket watches, they usually end up forgotten about in a drawer.  This one ended up sitting in one of our own drawers, purchased a few years ago and innocently forgotten about.  With a bit of summer cleaning that happened recently, it was rediscovered again and just waiting to be rehabilitated.  

 

This is an early Omega movement that is powered by the legendary caliber 19 movement.  Thes movements have been powering watches for over 125 years.  Starting in 1894, this movement is one of those that champions the term "if its not broke, dont fix it". Just a durable design that nailed it in regard to longevity and accuracy.  Early watches of this brand do not have the name stamped on the movement.  You have to take the dial off to see its credentials, this is one of them.  

 

This watch also has a solid .900 solid silver case with "Grand Prix Paris 1900" beautifully adorned on the back.  Its a testament to the detail even on the inside that these watches commanded.  

 

Runs, sets, and looks as beautiful as it did a century ago.  The porcelain ial has little to no wear on it and its all topped off with those original blued steel hands.  This is a turn key watch that will have plenty of heads turning when worn on your wrist.
