Vintage Omega “Explorer” Tropical Dial 2760-11 Steel 1954

1,000

A watch that brought me a lot of joy. This Omega “explorer-esque” watch with heavy dark coloured patina on the dial and iconic 3-6-9-12 dial layout is a truly unique piece. Never have I seen a similar watch.

The reference of this piece is 2760-11, a large family of Omega watches that were mainly plain looking dress watches. This one however stands out from the crowd and is a true conversation starter. This Omega watch was manufactured in 1954 which can be derived from the serial number (14xxxxxx). The movement is the workhorse manual wound caliber 283 movement which has been serviced in september 2020 and is ready for the next 5-8 years. The crown is original and Omega signed, the crystal has been replaced with an earlier service.

This watch has accompanied me in the past few years and comes from my personal collection. The watch has been serviced and cleaned and is ready for a new keeper. Who wants to be its guardian and give this unique piece to their grandchildren?

What we love:

-One of a kind dial
-Serviced in september 2020

What you should know:

-Crystal is not Omega signed

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.
