CASE & BRACELET
The excellent case shows light signs of being polished in the past and displays only very few signs of use. The case retains an Omega signed crown which is most likely an early service replacement. The case back retains its factory markings in deep and crisp condition. The watch will come supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
DIAL & HANDS
The beautiful white dial shows a slight amount of age and some markings and remains in excellent condition relative to its age. The gold applied markers are all well preserved and free of corrosion. The radium lume plots have aged to a rich golden patina. Under U.V. light inspection the 8 o'clock lume plot and 2 o'clock plot exhibit some degradation, the rest of the lume plots remain fully intact. The original radium and gold dauphine hands show some corrosion, under U.V light inspection the minute hand is missing most of its lume, the hour hand remains fully intact and has aged to a grey coloration.
None. The watch is keeping time and running perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
