This men’s gold Omega was made in 1964, and inscribed in 1965, and contains the Omega Calibre 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 be valid 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 dauphine hands are without any tarnish, so are probably also gold. This watch has the original crown, signed with the Omega logo, but the plating on this has been lost. 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. The leather strap is new.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
