|2pc Handmade Leather Strap
The early stainless steel case has been lightly polished in the past and retains symmetrical and full lugs with light signs of honest use. The smooth stainless steel bezel is in excellent and possibly unpolished condition. The case retains its original mushroom-style Omega "flat foot" crown. The screw-down case back shows light signs of use and is in wonderful condition. The Comes on a two-piece handmade leather strap.
The tuxedo-style dial with Arabic numerals is in beautiful condition taking on a lovely warm patina through the silver portions of the dial. The dial does show light age which is expected for watches from this era. The original radium lume has developed a deep golden patina and reveals almost no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original radium syringe hands match the dial beautifully, with the only degradation being a small chip of luminous material missing from the base of the hour hand. The sub-sweep second's hand is original and shows oxidation which is common for the age of the watch.
None. The watch is keeping time and running perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
