Why We Love it

While the Speedmaster remains perhaps Omega's most notable model, the brand produced beautiful dress watches throughout the late 1940s and 1950s. Many of these watches repurposed movements developed during World War II, such as the Calibre 30T2. Though the cases are thin, at 38mm they please the tastes of modern collectors, and are an enduring testament to the timelessness of these post-War wristwatches.

As Europe entered into the post-WW2 recovery period, the Swiss watch industry began its transition back to producing fine timepieces after years of fulfilling defense contracts. In keeping with the austere designs of the military watches of the 1940s, the clean lines and ornamentation of the Art Deco style faded away to a more utilitarian aesthetic inspired by military timepieces. This resulted in beautifully clean and understated watches to suit the tastes of returning G.I.’s.

The Reference 2609 is all dial, wide and open, with a creamy champagne hue, gold hour markers, sharp Dauphine hands, and subsidiary seconds at 6 o'clock. The movement that powers this watch, the Calibre 266, was adapted from the Calibre 30T2 used in Omega's military offerings. This 30mm movement was used for 30 years, and provided a mid-level alternative to some of Omega's pricier dress options like the Constellation

A proper dress watch should be thin, unobtrusive, and feature a simple dial layout without unnecessary complication or clutter. This "jumbo" Reference 2609 has it all, combining elegant looks with a redoubtable movement.
