Vintage Omega Calatrava Crosshair 1947 Sub-Second 2271-1

750

A prime example of Omega history. Beautiful Omega Calatrava with silver dial and small seconds. This particular watch was first introduced in 1947 (serial 11xxxxxx) and is made out of stainless steel. The watch case is fully original and unpolished with the original crown attached. The spider legs are sharp and give the watch an extra cool look. The reference is 2271-1 W and it houses the coveted successor of the 30T2 movement; caliber 265. The watch dial has been refurbished very early on. Furthermore, the watch features an applied logo and applied indices in baton kind, spear and an arabic numeral 12. The crosshair gives the watch a special look. Not completely original but not less special! This piece fits almost any occasion, whether you have a wedding coming up or are trying to impress your boss on your first day at work after the quarantine, this watch does the job.

What we love:

-Beautiful and special dial layout
-34mm in diameter and looks bigger due to the large dial

What you should know:

-The dial and crosshair have been refurbished very early on in this watch’ life
-The movement has been checked and runs. No service has been performed

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.
