Omega Vintage Chronometer Ref: 2367-6

$2,850

Pre-owned Omega 35.5mm Vintage Chronometer, Silver Dial, Olive Leather Strap, Ref: 2367-6

This is a significant watch from the history of watchmaking.  The 30T2RG caliber movement is one of the most famous chronometer calibers ever made. Chronometer accuracy was a must for railroad pocket watches due to the obvious need to avoid deadly crashes.  This watch reflects the period when Omega focused on developing chronometer certified movements for wristwatches (as opposed to pocket watches) that also featured a higher level of finishing for the movement.  This is a fine and rare stainless steel wristwatch with sweep center seconds, a silvered dial and outer railroad styled tracks.  While the dial shows scratches that pick up the light when photographed, it is actually unusual to find this reference watch with an original dial that is also in this nice of condition.  The case shows original brushing and has few nicks and scratches, as well as fairly sharp edges.  The crown appears as original, as do the hands.  We cannot say with complete certainty that all of the components are in fact original due to its age, but visually it appears correct. This watch should appeal to the person who is both familiar with its significance and who has been searching for the right one.

Description

Omega is one of the world’s most recognizable luxury watch brands. Although founded in 1848, the company did not become known as Omega until 1894, when the company took the name of its highly successful new watch movement. The revolutionary movement used a single crown for both winding and time setting. Success followed success when in 1905, due to its commitment to accuracy, Omega became the official timekeeper for Swiss sporting events. Later in 1932, Omega became the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games. To mark Omega’s 100th year anniversary, Omega introduced the watch that would become one of the world’s most popular watches, the Seamaster. While these are remarkable achievements, the watch that made Omega a legend among watchmakers was the Speedmaster, the only watch to survive the brutal NASA testing requirements and the only watch certified by NASA for use in Space. It is no surprise that Omega watches are recognized today as spectacularly rugged tool watches hiding in a luxury watch.
