Omega silver vintage wristwatch, circa 1925
A rare and early silver tonneau form hinged cased wristwatch
Early Omega wristwatches appear increasingly rarely to the market. This example, with silver hinged case, dates to the mid 1920s and its shape is one of the earliest wristwatch designs that appeared from the 1910s onwards. As with many watch models of this period, the strap is especially narrow and is attached to fixed bar lugs. The black exaggerated numerals are typical of the Art Deco period and the blued steel spade hands are of traditional form.
Manually wound, the calibre 23.7S T2 Omega movement is beautifully finished with decoratively machine pearling to the backplate. The silver dial is tarnished and with some scratches.
