This Unisex sized Omega 18k gold watch meets all the rules for dress watches.  Model reference 14453 61


From the serial number on the movement and the import hall mark on the inside of the case back we can accurately date this watch to being both made and assayed in 1962.


The dress watches are that the ideal dress watch should be small, of high quality materials, manual wind, slim and without extras such as complications or bracelets.  All options ticked on this design!  It is unusual to find an 18k Omega of this period in the UK with assay marks.  It was very expensive to import completed watches due to punitive taxes, so most watches were made in Switzerland and then fitted into British made cases, which were normally 9k gold.  There is nothing wrong at all with the Dennison or DS&S gold cases, but this has the OWC stamp for Omega Watch Company and there is twice the value of gold with it being 18k over it’s 9k rivals.  The movement is Omega’s 17 jewel calibre 620, a slim manual wind unit that allows this dress watch a low profile on the wrist.  The case size is considered small for most men today, but if you want a quality discreet dress watch then it is ideal and will slim under a cuff nicely.  The dial is losing the varnish around the edges, but it is not too noticeable when the dial is cased and on the wrist.  The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
