Omega Militair US Navy

This is a very nice vintage Omega military watch from the 1940s. Manual wind, centre seconds, chronometer grade 16 jewel movement. The Omega watch dates from 1944, this is based on its movement number. Movement calibre is 30SCT2-16, a 16 jewel indirect central seconds type. It is a bit of a mysterious watch. Some of these have ‘US Army’ issue markings on the back, but others do not. It seems like it was a civilian watch, for ordinary people, but that the US Army bought some and stamped the back so you can’t steal it from them. This Omega military watch has a diameter of 34mm. The dial is strange for that era. The hour numbers have an ‘exploding’ or ‘eccentric’ appearance, which you’ll find one of the more modern fussy creations gracing the pages of watch magazines. The dial on most of these models has undergone ageing, it has a nice vintage patina to which we like…

If you are interested in a watch with a beautiful historical story, we invite you to come and visit Reestraat 3 in Amsterdam…
