Louis Brandt (born year 1825) founded a assembly workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds back in 1848 - that was the beginning of OMEGA. His sons; Loius-Paul Brandt and César Brandt further developed the company and were among the first to apply refined mechanical manufacturing procedures to high quality watches.
The year 1894 saw the beginning of the production of the famous Omega calibers, remarkable for its perfect construction. With the end of the second World War Omega is overwhelmed with orders.

This rare and big size (36mm) vintage Omega, is a stunner. The watch is in a increadable condition considering the age, its hard to believe this watch was made the year of 1950.
The case is a lovely 14k solid gold, probably have it been polished at some time but all lines is still there. The dial is original and in an amazing condition. There is some small signs of ageing but over all - this dial is one of the best We ever seen on a honeycomb Omega.
The crown is original but have been lost a bit of the golden colour as you can see in the pictures.
The crystal is an original Omega crystal with the logo stamped in centre. The crystal have been polished through the years so it is hard to see without the loupe - but it is there.
This is one of the most beautiful and spectacular vintage Omegas that we ever had.
The watch is serviced and under warranty!
