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

Anybody who appreciates the beauty of tropicalised watches will surely love this piece, it has aged beautifully with a deep and even patina that brings a nice warmth to the dial. The simplicity of the dial design is rather charming with unusual rhombus hour plots and quarter Arabic numerals. There is a recessed sub-seconds counter at 6 o'clock and elegant syringe hands complete the picture. The hour markers and hands retain their original lume which has aged beautifully. The watch is just under 36mm which is fairly meaty for the time it was produced, by today's standards it is certainly a mid-sized watch and as such it wears light and comfortably on the wrist.

The case and lugs are crafted from polished stainless steel and are also in excellent shape, the watch is running well and keeping good time. A classic vintage Omega which will simply never go out of style, you won't go wrong with this one - beautiful!
