Omega Trésor Ref. 2624 18ct gold vintage wristwatch, circa 1949
An 18ct yellow gold manually wound wristwatch
A fabulous looking mid-century wristwatch, Omega first introduced the Ref. 2624, which they named the ‘Trésor’ or ‘Treasure’, in 1949. With a 36mm diameter case, this is a relatively large model for the period of production and, being made in 18ct yellow gold, the case has a wonderfully rich and warm tone. The silvered dial has applied, gold, Arabic and multi-faceted, pear-shaped indexes. Manually wound, the watch is powered by Omega’s calibre 283 which is part of the watchmaker’s highly regarded ’30’ series movements.
