Box, Omega guarantee and paperwork plus original sales invoice, dated 1974, along with other ephemera – great to find someone who obviously loved this watch enough to save all the relevant documents.
The Solid 9ct gold 33mm case houses the 24 jewel 565 movement the watch is completed by the very high quality and substantial solid 9ct gold bracelet which although not made by Omega was sold fitted to it in 1974 as verified by the original sales receipt .This was of course quite common practice at this time.
Its exactly this type of find that I love not just a stunning well loved watch but all the background as well
1.Waterproof please note under no circumstances should any vintage timepiece be regarded as waterproof regardless of the manufacturing specification at the time of manufacture
2.Precision Please note that some of the pieces we handle are over 100 years old and do not perform like some modern watches. Part of the attraction is the requirement to hand wind many of these time pieces on a regular basis.
3.Servicing, just like a vintage motor car a mechanical watch will require regular maintenance our suggestion would be once every few years should suffice but please feel free to contact us with any specific queries relating to an individual piece.
