Essay

One of the earliest wrist chronographs produced by the storied manufacture, with an adapted pocket watch movement, wire lugs, and an unusually placed chronograph button at 6 o’clock.
A rare and perfect example demonstrating the transition of pocket watches into wrist watches. Featuring a perfect untarnished case and bright original enamel dial this rare OMEGA is one many wish they could add to their collection. Featuring a single button chronograph this watch is an outstanding piece of horological, Aviation and OMEGA's history.
