Description

The age old adage of  “beauty in the eye of the beholder”  certainly applies to vintage wristwatches ,  yet this Super Rare Exceptional Omega Exploding Numerals Lge Tonneau St.Silver Case Gents watch must surely appeal to far more than it does not appeal too!

***** NO LONGER AVAILABLE ***

As to “my eyes”  this is about 9.85 on the Richter scale of exceptional ‘true vintage watches’  as for aesthetics , beauty of design and eye catching quality   ~   backed up strongly via substance & inherent quality!

The watch simply is impossible Not to pick up & handle if it is within arms length of you!
Some vintage watches have a “near presence almost”  &  this Super Rare Exceptional Omega Exploding Numerals Lge Tonneau St.Silver Case most certainly get’s a full 10 out of 10 on that score!

The large size plays a key role in ‘the overall excellence’ of this watch.
At approx;  53 mm’s from swinging lug tip to swinging lug tip ,  43mm’s without such & 31 mm’s  w.o.c.   ~   33.5 mm’s with crown  ~  this is Not a small watch by any means!!
It certainly covers plenty of wrist!

Genuinely rare silver Omega signed case.
To remove the movement ,  it is unscrewed via the pair of screws to the sides & not just the standard form ,  which the excellent 26.5 sob movement also has.

Running from memory {which has aged} the case makers mark of  ~  a lamp hanging off a crescent moon ,  seems to register a bell with a top end Niello case maker of pocket watches of the late-ish 19thC & 20thC.
With some of the finer work often being 19thC Russian or ‘Extended Russian’.

If you are unsure of Niello work ,  it is , when done very well ,  one of the most beautiful , difficult , impressive & complex forms of  “inlaying metal into metal”  often with silver/gold/black or dark grey inlays being a ‘standard’ form of such brilliant decoration.
I strongly suggest that if you are unaware of the “beauty &  complexity”  of Niello ,  that you google antique Niello inlaid watch or similar.    The case has certainly been made by a master caser!

The large st.silver case is a stunner ,  even empty!
The case is exceptional.
Very thick ,  beautifully curved &  beautifully shaped ,  cleaned & polished st.silver has come up perfectly   ~  not over done & showing enough signs of age still {more so when viewed in person}  with the swing lug’s being totally Original to the case ,  with all three components of the watch being original to the watch {movement/dial/case}  all started life together!

The ‘clean as’  26.5 sob Omega in house is running strongly & sweetly {keeping good time} with the serial# on the movement dating the watch to 1939 ,  once again an Omega that many would think dates from the late 20’s or early 30’s !

This truly stunning and Super Rare Exceptional Omega Exploding Numerals Lge Tonneau St.Silver Case Gent’s watch has been extremely professionally restored ,  with the case & dial being done by “the Best in the Business”  ~  there is another 75 yeas++  left in this watch ,  if serviced every 5 years  &  just shown some basic respect in use  ~  this superb Omega with Exploding Dial will outlast You!
