Vintage Omega Champagne Dial Sub-Second 2317-11 1947

850

A gentleman’s watch in its purest form. This Omega stainless steel dress watch with champagne dial, beautiful golden Dauphine hands and indices and a contrasting golden Omega crown that pairs perfectly with the golden hands. The real life beauty is hard to capture in an image. The reference is the rare 2317-11 which is almost impossible to find ever again. This watch houses a caliber 265 manual wind movement with a strong sound coming from it when wound. The ticking sound on a manual wounded timepiece like this is incredible. Just listen to it to get to an almost meditative state that feels like the world stops spinning for a moment. Unwind (pun intended) from the fast world we live in and trust on this 70 year (serial number 11xxxxxx) old watch to guide you through time.

What we love:

  • Incredible champagne dial
  • contrasting crown that matches hands and indices
  • Powerful manual wound 265 caliber

What you should know:

  • We have done our best effort to find a similar watch, without success due to its rarity. The crown style matches the time period but we can’t concludingly say it 100% belongs to this particular watch.
  • Although the case is in great state, there are some small black marks on the case-back.

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.
