Vintage Omega 2640-5SC ¨Patina¨ 1952

 849

Early time-only watches made by Omega have that charming warmth to them. Whether they have great patina or not these types of watches always bring a type of class no other brand is able to. The watch we are offering here certainly has great patina! The gorgeously aged dial on this watch has even spread patina across the whole surface, almost looking like a stardust pattern.

The present piece was made in 1952, an era in which watches were extremely important for time keeping. The timeless design Omega used with this watch is still in style more than 70 years later. The 36mm stainless steel case houses the sturdy cal. 283 hand wound movement that has been professionally serviced. The gorgeous details like the applied Omega logo, the dauphine hands and the pointed arrow hour markers accompany the patina dial perfectly. The condition of this watch is excellent, with no signs of a polished case and very minor scratches. The lume plots have corroded a little bit over the years.

What we love:

  • Stunning patina on the dial
  • Classic and simple design

What you should know:

  • Lume plots have corroded a little bit over the years

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.
