Omega

Jumbo - Vintage 18K Solid Gold Manual Winding Mens Watch
€1,275.00

For sale is a Swiss Made Omega men's dress watch with reference number 2619, dating back to 1950 based on its serial number. It features an 18k solid gold case which measures 36mm in diameter and is just 10mm thick. These models were fairly large for their time, and are therefore lovingly called "jumbo". The dial on this particular example was once finished in an off-white colour, but has developed a wonderful patina over the years: it has turned into a soft yellow tone with specks spread out uniformly across the watch face. Gold dauphine shaped hands indicate the time, with a sub second dial at the 6 o'clock position. Inside the watch sits a gorgeous Omega 265 movement, a legendary caliber and a direct descendant from the renowned Omega Cal. 30T2. The large jumbo style crown is not signed, and might have been replaced at one point in its life. It comes fitted to a brand new brown leather strap with generic gold tone buckle.

The example sold here has been worn throughout its life, but is still in good overall condition considering its age. The most notable sign of wear is a dent to the bezel, seen at 6 O'clock. The case is unpolished and therefore in original shape, with sharp edges and curves. The index at 6 O'clock is missing, but otherwise the aged dial is looking quite intriguing and unique. Please study the pictures in this listing well: they show the watch in the condition that it is in, with no digital enhancements to make it look better than it is. We are sure that you like honesty, and so do we. Functionally, the watch has been completely serviced and is working perfectly: the movement is exceptionally well preserved and looks close to new.

The watch comes without any paperwork or original box, but evidently we will provide a generic box to ship it to the buyer safe and sound. The item ships from Belgium and will be securely packaged and dispatched using the local postal service (BPost).
