HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1957. You can read more about this model on Omega’s own website here.
Omega have been making excellent watches for a long time, so when 18k gold prices are at record highs this represents excellent value for money. The hand winding movement, calibre 244, is running well and has a good power reserve, meaning you can easily go for more than 24 hours in between winds. The case has not been engraved and polished, so it still the original thickness. Inside the caseback is the Swiss hallmark of Helvetia’s head along with 0.750 18K, denoting the pureness of the material. When fitting watches into gold cases it is common practice to make the hands and hour markers from the same material, and the way these are not tarnished at all backs that up. The quarter hour markers are the arrowhead type, so sought after on the Constellation models of this period. The winder is signed. The dial does have spots evenly across it, which can not be improved, but do look far worse in enlarged photos and videos than on the wrist. The leather strap is new and can be swapped for a different colour if desired. Omega have revived the Tresor name more recently, but the modern watches are not really a direct comparison in size or price – the smallest steel cased 36mm, with quartz movement, is over £3,500 now. If you want 18k gold, like this watch, then it is £7,305 The translation for Tresor is Treasure, so steel cases seem at odds with that!
