Omega Ref. 720 circa 1945 | steel manually wound vintage wristwatch

Dating to c.1945, this is one of the earliest examples of this model that we have offered. The watch incorporates Omega’s famous 30T2 movement, one of the watchmaker’s most highly regarded vintage calibres. The handsome silvered dial has very distinctive silver foil hour markers with a combination of Arabic numerals at 12, 3 and 9 o’clock and flag-form indexes at the intervening hours. Advertised within Omega’s catalogues for the UK market as a Ref. 720, the case was made for the watchmaker by the Dennison case company and is one of their most classic designs, featuring a polished chamfered bezel, gently down-turned lugs and flat, snap-on, back. There is light and even oxidation to the dial, a minor, small depression beside 11 o’clock and light scuffs and scratches to the steel case.
