This gold Omega was made in 1964, and inscribed in 1965, and contains the Omega 269 Manual wind movement.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
We can date this to 1962 from the serial number on the watch movement, but as the case was hallmarked in Birmingham 1964 the two wouldn’t have been put together to make a watch until 1964. Then it was engraved in April 1965. Either 1964 as a production date, or 1965 as a sold date would work for a birth year watch.
The solid gold case is in very good shape. The dial does have patina but all the applied markers and the hands are without any tarnish, so are probably also gold. Has the original crown. The inscription is nicely engraved, and the achievement of working in one place for 31 years is to be respected. The movement has very slight surface rust but works perfectly and Omega manual movements of this period are very high quality.
35.1mm wide including the signed crown, 9.9mm thick. Takes an 18mm strap.
