The commercial release Omega Ref. 2850SC with the XVI notation on the dial referencing the 16th Olympiad of Melbourne, Australia in 1956.

The Olympic Cross of Merit is accorded to Omega in 1952 for their outstanding service to the world of sports. Omega has been involved with the Games since 1932. A special series of watches were produced to celebrate Omega’s 25 years of official Olympics timekeeping for the Games of the XVI Olympiad held in Melbourne, Australia in 1956. This was the first time the Summer Olympic Games were held in the Southern Hemisphere, and was held in Australian summer months of November/December instead of the usual August.

The reason this piece piqued my interest is because it was one of the earliest Olympics commemorative wristwatches; with the earlier editions being largely pocket watches.

This was the Seamaster XVI Olympic Watch, ref. 2850SC comes in a 34mm and 11mm case hight, 18K rose gold snap back case with special frog-leg lugs. Weight 45g with strap.

Encased within it, is Omega’s copper coloured calibre 471 automatic movement. The Calibre 400 series movements were the first to feature a full rotor.

The dial was silvered matt finish with lozenge form appliqué markers with minute markings. The hands were Dauphine styled, and the case had a snap on back with a raised Olympic seal. The case also featured fancy “Frog Leg” lugs.

    Je me demande encore (de moins en moins) s'il s'agit bien d'un montre "Zenith"...
    Je ne le pense pas

    Buenos días Señor, el reloj fue enviado completamente revisado y funcionando perfectamente. Usted usó el reloj de forma indevida, intentando cerrar la pulsera sobre su brazo que es de un tamaño mayor, no debió hacerlo, ya que rompió el cierre. Después de esto usted pidió entre 800-1000€ de compensación, cosa totalmente ilogica. Tras enviar usted un video del reloj, se demostró que fué culpa suya la rotura del mismo. Todos los expertos de Catawiki pudieron observar que usted rompió el reloj y la disputa fué cerrada. Aun así usted insiste en valorarme negativamente, cosa totalmente injusta. Solicito a Catawiki que esta valoración sea eliminada. Saludos.
