Omega Ref. 2242 circa 1945 | steel manual vintage wristwatch

Reference 2242 was first introduced by Omega in 1941 and the present example dates to c.1945. The case has a wonderfully angular design with faceted, stepped lugs that have flat sides. A steeply angled bezel maximises the dial’s surface area and the case back is gently domed. The silvered dial is attractively configured with raised gilded dot indexes and printed black Arabic numerals – the surface has been professionally and sympathetically restored in the past. There are gilded leaf-shaped hands and a contrasting blued steel centre seconds. Manually wound, the watch is powered by the famous Omega calibre 30T2, one of the watchmaker’s most highly regarded movements.
