Vintage Omega 2639 Black Gilt Dial 1954

 1.099

In the early 1950s Omega designed the beautiful and elegant reference 2639. After a total of 16 small changes in design they came up with this exact watch: ref. 2639-16. Born in 1954 this stunning watch features a 35mm case made in stainless steel. Most noticeable however is the exquisite tropical gilt dial this watch houses. Black dials that have aged this well are extremely rare and attractive. The beautifully aged golden hour markers and applied logo that almost looks like rose gold accompany the gilt dial perfectly.

 

This wrist piece runs on the famous and reliable manual wound cal. 266 and features a sunken sub dial for its seconds hand. The condition of this watch is excellent for its age and shows no signs of over-polishing. Chamfors on the lugs can still be seen and there are small scratches on the screwdown caseback.

 

What we love:

– Black tropical gilt dial.

– Beautifully aged golden hour markers and hands

-excellent vintage condition

 

What you should know:

– Watch comes as watch only

– Small scratch on caseback

OMEGA 

Omega is one of the most iconic Swiss luxury watchmakers currently around. Based in Bienne, Switzerland and founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. Omega was formally known as “La Generale Watch Co.” until incorporating the name Omega in 1903, when they became Louis Brandt et Frère – Omega Watch & Co. In 1982, the company officially changed its name to Omega SA.

Notable lovers of Omega watches:

Britain’s Royal Flying Corps chose Omega watches in 1917 as its official timekeepers for its combat units, as did the U.S. Army in 1918. Omega watches were the choice of NASA and the first watch on the Moon in 1969. In addition, Omega has been the official timekeeping device of the Olympic Games since 1932. James Bond has worn it in films since 1995; other famous Omega wearers, past and present, include Buzz Aldrin, George Clooney, John F. Kennedy, Mao Zedong and Elvis Presley.
