Omega Ref. 720 vintage wristwatch, circa 1946
A steel manually wound wristwatch
The dial of this Omega has wonderfully even oxidation and patination to the surface, giving the watch a unique and characterful vintage look. Advertised in 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. Manually wound, the movement is a 30T2 PC which is one of the earliest members of Omega’s famous and highly regarded ’30’ series calibres. In addition to the oxidation to the dial, there is some pitting around the rim of the case back.
