Vintage Omega Automatic 161.009 from 1964

 1.249

Simplicity is key when creating a high end dress watch. A clean design creates the elegant look a dress watch should have. This beautiful Omega Automatic 161.009 took the idea of less is more to another level by not having any lume and adding no text to the dial other than the brand name and automatic. The stunning golden details of the dial combined with the solid 18k gold case make this dress watch something you don’t want to miss out on, so get it before it’s gone!

This watch was made in 1964 and runs on the solid 552 automatic movement. The crisp white dial with golden stick markers contrast beautifully with the gold case. This center seconds watch has a golden ´dauphine´ handset matching the color palette of the case and dial. The 34mm case features an original thin Omega signed crown, a high domed crystal, has straight lugs and a snap-on caseback. The condition of this watch is excellent with very small marks on the case. This watch has probably been polished a little bit in its life. 

What we love:

  • Simple but elegant design
  • Golden details
  • Solid 18k gold case

What you should know:

  • Has most likely been polished in its life

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.
