Description

Since the company was founded in 1848, Omega has pioneered a huge range of innovations. Britain’s Royal Flying Corps chose Omega watches in 1917 as official timekeepers for its pilots and again in 1940, RAF Pilots watches were supplied by Omega. The 1940s also saw the first tourbillon wristwatch and the first of the famous Seamaster watches, whilst the 1950s and ’60s introduced the legendary Constellation, Speedmaster, Seamaster 300 and Railmaster. Over the years, everyone from John F. Kennedy to Elvis wore Omega watches on official duties. What’s more, in 1962, astronaut Wally Schirra took his Omega Speedmaster to space on NASA’s Mercury Sigma 7 mission, and in 1969 two Speedmasters landed on the moon, worn by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.

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.

Here we have a particularly attractive, Omega Cal.267 hand-wound gents dress watch with a subsidiary seconds dial at ‘6’, in 9ct gold from 1959. This watch is immaculate, having just completed full restoration by our team. The movement in particular, is in spectacular condition! Omega movements have always been highly regarded for their accuracy and dependability so these are considered one of the most practical everyday vintage watches one can buy.

The Movement

The Omega Calibre 267, 17 jewels copper-plated beryllium bronze movement is part of the famous Omega 30mm series, which was continually developed over 25 years and became a cornerstone of Omega’s history.

As can be seen, the movement here is in sparkling, pristine condition and has obviously been very well cared for. It is marked – 17 jewels – with the serial number 17031833 which dates the watch to 1959.

This watch has been fully overhauled and serviced by our vintage Omega specialist watchmaker and is calibrated to run arrow straight within +7 seconds/day! This is outstanding for any watch of this age and has been tested on our electronic timegrapher. The power reserve on this movement is 45 hours when fully wound and the movement winds, runs and sets smoothly, exactly as it should. We therefore have no hesitation in offering our 12-month warranty on the movement of this watch*.

*Please note – our 12 months’ warranty is only applicable if the list price is paid.

The Dial

This classic Omega 1950s silver-white dial is furnished with applied gilt ‘baton’ hour indices matched with the original restored ‘Leaf’ hands. The dial has the attractive and desirable subsidiary seconds dial at ‘6’ and is signed with the Omega brand with ‘Swiss Made’ at the very bottom of the dial.  A new correct replacement lens has also been fitted as part of the restoration.

This is the original dial which has been restored by our dial restorers who are considered to be the best in the UK.

The Case

The original 9ct yellow gold case measures 33.5mm in diameter, excluding the correct original Omega signed crown, which makes this a good-sized watch by 1950s and ’60s standards. This is a high-quality Dennison watch case made for Omega in Birmingham UK, one of the top two leading U.K. case-makers. It signed ‘A.L.D. Dennison Made In England’, with Birmingham U.K. 9ct hallmarks. The case is in immaculate condition with no dings or scratches visible to the naked eye.

The case is of full-thickness and has never been inscribed.

Please note, as ever, our standard advice applies: Vintage watches should be kept clean and dry at all times.

The Strap and Buckle

The watch is fitted with an Omega Crocodile 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 are all correct and date the watch to 1959.

Detailed particulars are included with the receipt, along with our 12 months warranty*. A separate insurance valuation for the replacement value will also be provided at the time of sale. This includes 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.

This watch also comes complete with the original vintage Omega presentation box shown in the photographs.

In Conclusion

A very attractive, classic 9ct gold Omega in wonderful fully restored condition. This is a highly collectable vintage gold watch from horology’s most famous name which will provide an excellent financial investment as well as be 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.
