875

A beautiful and rare 1954 (14xxxxxx) Omega with small seconds and yellow gold applied spear markers. The stainless steel reference 2791-1 case measures 35mm excluding the original knurled winding crown. The dial is in excellent condition with a subtle, warm dotted cream color developing.
The movement is a cal. 266 manual wind movement which has been serviced by our expert watchmaker. The case has beautifully down turned lugs with the one remark being that the right upper lug is a little bit bent to the right. The case has a snap-off case-back with some nato-strap marks. Overall this watch is in great condition, the dial is fully Omega original, the yellow gold applied indices and matching hands look pristine and the original , large Omega signed crown makes for easy winding all day. This watch is part of the unmarked Seamaster period of Omega. A rare configuration that is listed as Seamaster by Omega in their archives but not signed with Seamaster on the dial.

-Beautiful Creamy Dotted Dial

-Fully serviced in September 2020

What you should know:

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.
