Automatic - Steel
|Brand:||Omega (More lots)|
|Model:||'Ultra Flat' Bumper Watch|
|Type:||Analogue wristwatch (More lots)|
|Condition:||In working condition with visible traces of use|
Up for auction is a 1940's rare Omega ultra-flat automatic bumper watch, ref. 2374-2, the flattest automatic model ever produced in series during the 40’s. The glossy Silver dial has patinaed to a beautiful Ivory colour and simply pops against the chrome Arabic hour markers. The printed inner register and Omega logo remains strong and protected over the years by the lacquer. The Stainless Steel case with a chased case-back is held in by a notched looking ring (a Favre-Parret patent) and was water resistant thanks to a shellac gasket. Super shrap protruding lyre-shaped lugs fitted to a brushed case middle. The original and period correct crown has also survived the years. It has been attached to a generic 18mm black leather strap and buckle. The 17 jewel movement is cal 30.10 RA and is triple signed. A stunning example of a vintage automatic Omega in good condition. I believe the dial has been professionally refinished.
Will be supplied without box and papers and shipped using special recorded delivery with insurance up to the full amount.

As expected on time, item in good working order!
Would have been nice if the seller placed an honest description. The box is not original and neither is the dial. It's nog even worth half of the expert's estimate. Regretting this buy.Hello sir,
Sorry you was disappointed with your purchase.
Regarding the box, we can confirm is an genuine JLC box, but not a 70 year old box.
To our knowledge, the dial is original but could have been restored by a previous owner. We feel the pictures in the listing clearly show all aspects of the item and Catawiki's expert's guided us on the price, which it still didn't achieve. We hope you consider us for future business.
Kindest regards, management.
Watch received on time and exactly as described Thank you Stanley James
