Vintage Omega 18 Carat Solid Gold Honeycomb Dial 1952

1,300

Reference 2690 was produced for the international Omega collection in 1952 (13xxxxxx). The 18k solid gold case with “honeycomb” dial is both extremely rare and very attractive. The dial has evenly darkened with age and forms a special champagne finish. The small contrast with the bezel creates an elegant two toned finish. There are 2 small black spots on the dial. There is an extra protective/antimagnetic plate over the movement, which is very rare for gold Omega’s. The down turned lugs make it even more classy. Haven’t found the same watch online, its rarity makes it a truly unique piece.

What we love:

  • Incredible Honeycomb champagne dial
  • Extra antimagnetic plate over movement
  • Extremely rare

What you should know:

  • Two small black spots on the dial

THE BRAND

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.
