This ladies Omega has some mystery about it. We are not sure of the model number, can’t find another anywhere and are not even sure of the case material.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the manual wind Omega 485 we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1972.
The watch is in near perfect condition. The sapphire crystal (this range of watches were known as the emerald range because of the sapphire crystal bizarrely) is chip free, and the in house movement is running nicely. But inside the case back you would expect to find the Omega model number, but it is not there. You would also expect to find either a mark saying 20 microns of gold plate, or a hallmark, but again there is nothing except service marks. Therefore we are selling this as yellow metal, as an acid test would be too damaging to the case.
If you know more about this watch that we have been able to find, please do contact us.
This watch will be supplied with a presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity.
