Omega dress watches have a rich history that dates back to the early 20th century. These elegant timepieces were specifically designed to be worn with formal attire, serving as a symbol of sophistication and status. In the 1920s, Omega introduced their first collection of dress watches, featuring sleek and minimalistic designs. These watches were characterized by their slim profiles, refined dials, and luxurious materials such as gold and platinum.

They quickly gained popularity among high-society individuals who sought to make a fashion statement. During the mid-20th century, Omega continued to innovate in the realm of dress watches. They introduced innovative features like automatic movements and water resistance while maintaining their commitment to timeless design aesthetics. In recent years, Omega has modernized its dress watch offerings by incorporating cutting-edge technology alongside classic design elements.

What's on Offer

You simply cannot go wrong with a vintage Omega, they exude class and elegance and are still very wearable. This is the perfect example of a watch that has transcended time, at over 80 years old it looks as stylish and contemporary on the wrist as many of its modern counterparts. The refined dial is blemish-free and boasts applied polished metal hour markers, sword hands and 'Big Eye' sub-seconds dial, encapsulated underneath a shatterproof acrylic crystal and encased in stainless steel. The ultra-slim steel bezel means the 35mm dial wears significantly larger on the wrist. The watch is powered by the reputable 30T2 movement which was first introduced in 1939 and was produced thereafter for over 25 years and over 3 million of these movements were produced - a testament to its reliability and precision! 

This watch is in incredible condition given its age, there are of course signs or wear but this is to be expected and as we always say, it is all part of the joy when considering a vintage watch. We love it!
