Sharing most of the 30T2PC movement design with the dirty Dozen Omega, this civilian version has the rat rod/patina look. Model reference 2219/7
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the personal engraving on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being gifted in 1949. The movement does date from 1946, so the watch didn’t sell immediately (which was quite normal for the time).
Let’s be clear – this is not the exact same movement in the dirty dozen watch. For one this movement is copper plated, and has shock protection. But the basic design is the same, with the oversized sub second hand. This dial is original, but has a lot of patina. Some people will like this, others would get the dial repainted. We would prefer to keep it original and enjoy it with the patina. The new buffalo look leather strap actually suits this more roughed up look, but this could be supplied on a nylon NATO strap instead if preferred. The 30T2PC calibre is running well and the inside of the case has plenty of service marks, suggesting it has been looked after mechanically. The stamped model number is difficult to make out, but we think it is 2219/7. The acrylic glass is new, and the crown is signed. This is a more affordable way of getting into vintage Omega watches than many, so if you like the patina it is an easy decision.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
