Omega Seamaster Ref. 2984 'Spider Lugs' circa 1958 | steel vintage automatic wristwatch

Omega Seamaster Ref.2984 c.1958

This rare Seamaster model has highly unusual, angular, so-called ‘spider’ lugs. Dramatically different in appearance from other Seamaster models of the period, the Ref.2984 was first introduced by Omega in 1958. Great attention to detail has been paid to the design of the watch from its specially designed lugs, to the original faceted crown, alpha-shaped hands, and slim lugs with chamfered sides. Lightly patinated and with a creamy silvered finish, the dial is in lovely condition with a rich lustre. The bezel has a flat polished finish and the snap-on case back is centred with the embossed Seamaster logo. Automatically wound, the watch is powered by the Omega calibre 501 with 20 jewels and precision regulation.

Made in 1959, this Tudor wristwatch has a rare and unusual, matte, light champagne dial with an engine-turned outer chapter ring for the raised Arabic numerals. The dial is in excellent original condition and the contrast between the engine-turned outer ring and the dial centre creates a two-tone finish; subtle colour variations between the sections are seen as light crosses the surface. The steel Rolex Oyster case has the classic screw-down crown and case back and a smooth polished bezel.

Telda circa 1950 | chrome and steel triple calendar wristwatch

Telda Cal. Venus 204 circa 1950

Bright and gleaming, this is a new/old stock Telda triple calendar wristwatch made in c.1950. A true time capsule, the watch appears almost exactly as it would have done when it left the Telda factory some 70 years ago. The days of the week and date automatically advance at midnight and the months require manual advancement at the start of each month via the pusher to the case side at the 2 o’clock position. Two further pushers at 4 o’clock and 10 o’clock respectively allow the quick manual advancement, if required, of the date and day.

Founded in Tramelan, Switzerland, in 1903, The Record Watch Company moved its headquarters to Geneva in 1924. In 1961 a majority interest in the Record Watch Company was purchased by Longines.
