Stainless Steel Omega (1943)

Classic 1940s Omega with two tone dial and 26.5 T3 movement.

A very nice vintage Omega, dating to the early 1940s. The model is unknown, but very similar to the well-known Officer model (the Office is visually similar and uses the same movement and case style, but is a bit larger).

The watch has a stainless steel Omega signed case. The case serial number dates this watch to 1943. The case is in Very Good condition with only minor signs of wear. The snap on case back is without engraving or exterior markings.

The spectacular two tone dial is in Excellent condition and may be a re-dial. (It was like this when we obtained the watch.) If it is original, it is in amazing condition. If it is a redial, it was done professionally and looks correct. The blued steel stick hands are without oxidation or rust.

The movement is Omega’s excellent 15 jewel, the 265.T3. This movement was an Omega workhorse for ages, both in this configuration and as the later T3. The watch winds, sets and runs properly. The watch lacks a signed crown, but this was not uncommon on Omegas from this period.

The watch is 30mm in diameter, not including the crown or the lugs. The size makes the watch a bit small by contemporary standards and can be worn comfortably by either a man or a woman.

We’ve included with this watch a brand new Hirsch Mustang water resistant padded leather watch band that compliments the watch nicely.

Note that this watch has not been serviced while in our possession. While it is running fine now and keeping good time, we always advise clients to have vintage mechanical watches serviced regularly by a professional in order to assure long life and accuracy.
