Vintage Omega Classic Jumbo Gold/Steel 2640-61 SC 1952

700

Beautiful Omega Classic Jumbo vintage watch with white dial, stainless steel case and gold-plated bezel to finish it off. The watch diameter measures 36 mm excluding crown. The dial has some damage to it which gives the watch its aged look and makes it “smile” at you every time you look at it. This piece has golden hands and hour marks. It also has an original golden Omega signed crown. The movement is the manual wound omega caliber 283 movement. To make it even better it had full service in January 2020 (service receipt available). The movement serial number dates back to 1952. The reference is 2640-61 SC and was produced in the international collection from 1949-1958. A real iconic watch!

What we love:

  • Fully serviced and ready for the next decade
  • Amazing clean and timeless design
  • Beautiful contract between the stainless steel case and gold plated bezel

What you should know:

  • The dial has aged and has some damage that forms a smiley face

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.
