Description

The Omega story began in 1848 at La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, when its founder Louis Brandt at the age of 23 opened a comptoir d’établissage, a sub-contracting sales office for watch manufacture. In 1880, due to the greater supply of manpower, communications and energy, Louis-Paul and Cesar Brandt moved into a small factory in the city of Bienne /Biel. With the introduction of their first series-produced calibers, Labrador and Gurzelen, in 1895 the watches achieved a precision of within 30 seconds a day.

Four years later, Louis Brandt & Fils became the largest producers of watches in Switzerland, with a production rate of 240,000 watches produced annually and employing 800 people, but this fact did not stop the exclusivity of the watches they produced: a clear example is the minute-repeating wristwatch, developed in 1892 in partnership with Audemars Piguet, and probably the first wristwatch of its kind. The famous Omega caliber became a brilliant market performer when it went into production in 1894. Its major points for saleability were in its easily interchangeable parts and its simplicity of construction. The company’s banker, Henri Rieckel, suggested the name “Omega” for the new watch. The overwhelming success of the “Omega” name led to it being adopted as the sole name for all the watches of the company from 1903.

Today, seven out of ten people throughout the world are familiar with the Omega watch brand – a truly amazing rate of awareness to which few other watch brands can lay claim, not to mention the watch worn on the first walk on the moon!

Here we have a particularly attractive, Omega Cal.267 Hand Wound Gents Dress Watch in 9ct gold from 1958. This watch is in immaculate, fully restored condition throughout.

The Movement

The Omega Calibre 267 17 Jewel copper beryllium movement here, looks spectacularly pristine and our watchmaker has commented that this particular movement has been very lightly used and very well cared for. It is marked – 17 jewels – and with the serial number 16,629,156 which dates the watch to 1958. The movement winds, runs & sets smoothly and is in superb working order and keeping excellent time.

This watch has been fully overhauled and serviced by our vintage Omega specialist watchmaker and is calibrated to run arrow straight within + 6 second / day! This is no exaggeration. We have seen the test results from an electronic watch test instrument and in its half wound state this watch is running accurately within 6 seconds per day! We are therefore more than happy to offer a 12 month warranty on the movement of this watch*.

The Dial

This Silver-White dial has the most attractive classic at ‘6’ subsidiary seconds dial configuration, with alternating applied  2 -4 -8 – 10 -12 gilt numerals and dagger hour indices.  This is the original dial which has been restored by our Dial Restorers who are one of the best, if not the best in the UK. Original Dauphine hands complete the dial and a new lens has also been fitted.

The Case

The 9ct yellow gold case measures 34mm in diameter, not including the original Omega signed crown. It is in immaculate condition with no dings or scratches visible to the naked eye. This high quality Dennison watch case is signed 13339 A.L.D. Dennison Made In England, Omega Watch Co. 9 .375 with Birmingham U.K. Hallmarks. You will be very unlikely to find an Omega of this age in better condition!

The Strap and Buckle

The watch is fitted with an Omega ‘Croc’ leather strap with an Omega gold plated buckle. Please note if a different colour or style of strap is preferred, please let us know and we will do our best to oblige free of charge. We carry tan, conker, dark brown burgundy and black in stock, in plain padded leather, alligator, crocodile skin or lizard skin.

The Box and Papers

Although there is no original paperwork with this watch, the reference numbers, markings, signatures and hallmarks all correct and date the watch to 1958. This watch also comes complete with a high quality hardwood presentation box.

Detailed particulars are included with the receipt, along with our 12 months Warranty*.  A separate insurance valuation for the replacement value will be provided at the time of sale. This will also include our ‘Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee’ which states: “If this watch proves to be anything less than totally authentic, or not as described, Vintage Gold Watches of London will offer you a full refund at any time.

In Conclusion

A very attractive classic 9ct Gold Omega in wonderful fully restored condition. This is a highly collectible vintage gold watch from horology’s most famous name which will provide an excellent financial investment as well as something to treasure and enjoy!

A word on our prices – We always try our hardest to acquire the very highest quality watches we can find, before then restoring them to the highest possible standards. We then offer these at the fairest prices we can, taking into account our pre and post sales care and service. This approach means we will never be the cheapest, but nor will we be the most expensive. Indeed there are some well known stores in West London which are highly successful charging between two to three times the price you see here. We therefore consider our prices to be fair, given the quality of watches we have to offer.

We are happy to accept PayPal as this is the quickest method of payment. However if you would like to pay by UK cheque or by bank transfer we will be pleased to assist you with this and pass on a 3% saving to you.

*Note – 12 Month warranty only included if the list price is paid.
