About this watch

This really is an exceptional piece from 1949 as confirmed by the accompanying Omega document showing it was originally delivered to Australia

The 2451 was introduced in 1946 just after the war and early watches ran on the cal.27 CHRO C12T2 movement which was later renamed the cal 321 which gained fame as the powerhouse for the famous Omega Speedmaster watches until 1967/68.

Later versions of the 2451 bore the Seamaster badge and renamed cal 321 movement but to find one of the earlier non Seamaster models is incredibly difficult let alone in this outstanding condition and to have the Archive document confirm serial number all correct and dated to 1949 is the icing on the cake.

The stainless steel 35 mm case with screw on case back is in remarkable condition as is the champagne coloured dial finished with tachymeter outer scale applied numeral in silver and finished with leaf hands.

The watch is fitted to a quality brown leather strap and fitted to a later Omega buckle

This really is an great vintage watch that can still be worn every day as it was originally designed for.
