Omega 2495 cal. 265 tropical dial

A collectible Omega dress watch from 1947 with extraordinary tropical patina and serviced movement, made in Switzerland

Case
Stainless steel Calatrava watch case. Please note that this vintage wristwatch shows slight signs of wear, while this watch is more then 75 years old.

Dial
Tropical dial with Arabic numerals

Movement
In-house Omega mechanical hand-wound movement cal. 265

Strap
17 mm leather strap, unworn and brand new, made in Europe

Condition
The outspoken dial with mesmerizing and oversized sub-seconds at six ‘o clock features the most popular sort of patina, which collectors call ‘Tropical’. This dial probably once was silver or white, and turned into a warm caramel colour, due to consistent exposure of the sun. Furthermore, this watch features large Arabic numerals, which is a mostly rare configuration for 1947. A detail which certainly is worthy to mention is the original and signed Omega crown and the attractive tapered lugs. This watch is perfectly suitable as your daily wristwatch while a fresh leather strap is added, and the movement has been serviced recently.

Measurement
33 x 41 mm

Provenance
