Firstly let me apologise because no words or even photographs can convey to you how nice this piece is from the solid 18ct rose gold case to the pristine pale cream dial complimented by the gold dagger hour markers and dauphine hands with date display aperture, even the original decorative Omega crown adds to this watch.
The 34mm solid 18ct gold case was made in Argentina as was the norm for this period and explains the very heavy gold case , it is beautifully decorated inside the case back and carries all the correct markings .
The early automatic Cal 503 twenty jewel movement the number 16484452 dates this piece to c1958 and again looks like new .
This piece is fitted to a later high quality padded brown leather strap and delivered in a lovely original omega box
It really is astounding to think that this watch was made nearly 60 years ago
Trust me if you know someone born in 1958 this would be a stunning gift for a sixtieth birthday and will definitely cost more in 2018,get it now while you can.
