Why We Love it

There is something about a silver sector-dialed timepiece that gets the blood of every watch enthusiast pumping.

It might be the casually cluttered nature of the dial configuration with the added chapter ring and graduated scales, it could be the slightly 'sportified' nature of printed Arabic quadrant indices, or it could even be the subtle tonalities of silver that play against each other, adding a visual depth and allure that only a true enthusiast can explain.

This particular Omega 'Calatrava' dress watch dates to circa 1939 and features what would have been considered an oversized 37.5mm snapback case, housing a patinated silver sector dial with painted indices and a matching blued-steel sword handset and Omega's hand-cranking Calibre 26.5 movement within.

Remaining in very good, untouched condition, this piece harkens back to the last days of peace in Europe before the start of the Second World War, and wears its patina gracefully as an unmolested talisman of times past. 

From its crisply printed stylized logo to its oversized subsidiary seconds register, this is without question a very special watch for the discerning collector who understands the undeniable charm and character that it unapologetically offers.

Overall Condition

The case is in very good condition overall showing light wear consistent with age and use. Silver sector dial shows patina throughout with some staining and light wear along upper edge with matching blued-steel handset. Unsigned crown.

Brand Story

+
The story of Omega is one that captivates generations of horological devotees. The second-largest watchmaker in the world in terms of annual turnover, the Bienne-based firm has been continuously producing watches since 1848, which it does today under the auspices of the Swatch Group.

Founded in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland as La Generale Watch Co, Omega was well ahead of the horological curve from the beginning, developing the first minute-repeating wristwatch in 1892 as well as the eponymous “Omega” caliber in 1894. This 19-ligne movement was revolutionary in that its parts could be replaced by any watchmaker in the world without modification, while its winding and time-setting via the crown provided an industry standard.

Omega became the timepiece supplier of choice for the British Royal Flying Corps in 1917, while the Americans followed suit in 1918, choosing their watches for the U.S. Army. Awards for precision chronometry became almost commonplace, while 1932 saw them become the first watch brand to time an entire Olympic Games. Their Marine, which debuted the same year, is regarded as the first commercially available diver’s watch.

During the Second World War, Omega supplied well over 100,000 timepieces to British forces, making it the largest watch supplier to the British and her allies. These watches, from the unique 6B/159 to the famed “Dirty Dozen” W.W.W, remain highly collectible today.

1948 saw the launch of the original Seamaster: Built upon the tool watch legacy of the brand’s timepieces from the War, it’s since become a byword for reliability and legibility, both as a dress watch and, more recently, as a serious diver’s tool. The Speedmaster, released in 1957 and originally marketed for the auto-racing market, first rocketed to space on the wrist of American astronaut Wally Schirra in 1962. However, it became a household name when, in 1969, it accompanied Buzz Aldrin on the Moon, and later helped save the space-stranded crew of Apollo 13 in 1970 by timing a critical rocket burn.

Today, Omega’s watches — all of which feature in-house movements — run the gamut from svelte dress pieces to the venerable Speedmaster in all its guises. Providing an unquestionable value proposition, Omega is a brand that deserves to be at the center of every serious watch lover’s collection.
