Omega 14ct pink gold vintage wristwatch, circa 1943
A rare 14ct pink gold manually wound wristwatch with highly unusual copper coloured dial
This watch has an extraordinary, copper coloured dial which changes from bright to dark tones as the watch is tilted from side to side in the light. The Roman and baton indexes are particularly slim and have a pink, mirror foil finish which is outlined in black. To the edge of the dial, the seconds/minutes are fully calibrated to fifths. Although there are oxidation spots to the dial, the surface itself retains a good lustre. With elegant proportions, the 14ct pink gold case is rich in tone with coppery hues which compliment the colour of the dial. The lugs are slim and centrally faceted with a gentle downward curve, whilst the bezel is steeply chamfered which creates a larger surface area for the dial and increases the eye’s perception of the watch’s size.
