1944 Omega (Ref. 2179/5) Cal. 30T2
The cal. 30T2 is a time only manual wind movement that Omega created in 1939, and became a large benefactor for building Omega's early reputation of making accurate and quality timepieces. The cal. 30T2 is essentially a robust but simple base movement that is very versatile in its adaptability, in fact, variations of the cal. 30T2 was produced until 1963. This legendary movement wasn't only for civilian use either, as the British military issued a massive contract with Omega to produce chronometer rated timepieces for their soldiers that all housed a modified cal. 30T2 movement.
