With a fantastic cross hatch or linen dial, every collection could find space for this 1968 Omega.  Model reference 132.0019.


From the serial number hallmark on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1968.


We should start with the dial, as this is the stand out feature of an already nice watch.  The smallest mark near the centre is the only sign of  damage, and that isn’t bad either.  The patterning is very fine and is worth looking at with either enlarging the photos or with a loupe in the flesh.  The case is gold plated to 20 microns, and there are places where it is wearing through, but overall it is good for 50 plus years wear.  The crystal is perfect.  Inside the case is an Omega calibre 611, a nicely copper plated manual wind movement which is all working well.  It has a semi quick set date and excenter screw on the regulator for fine adjustment.  The crown is not original but works perfectly, and the case back has a tool slip mark on it.   The brown 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.
