A nice, 35mm men’s Omega that uses the same movement as some of the military ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches of the time.


Omega used 9 million serial numbers from 1926 all the way to 1943, so the serial number isn’t the best way to date this watch (although Omega can provide, for a cost, an Extract from the Archive if you really want a precise date).   We do know the movement type used in this watch was first used in 1939, so we can narrow it down to some time between 1939 and 1943 as a date of production.


For a watch of the age that this Omega is, this is in good condition.  The dial does have some marks, most noticeably a mark near the 11 hour marker, but the overall appearance is nice – and the original dial doesn’t appear to have been damaged by smoke, which is all too common of watches of this period.  The train track minute markers is nice too.  Inside the steel case is a 17 jewel Omega calibre 30T2 movement, which is ticking away nicely.  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.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon.  By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
