Description

This Handsome Omega Helvetia Vintage Black Dial Gents Watch is a quality Swiss vintage watch from the Omega stable.

With a very appealing dial ,  in a jet black colourway ,  with applied steel double markers , oversize sub seconds dial and Brueget style Arabic numerals at 3, 9 and 12  ~  combined with the original steel hands and Asian style font to the Helvetia brand name makes for one good looking dial.

The full size st.steel case with branded case back is a 6 point screw down and manufactured as waterproof {approx; 34m} when new.

Near mint 17 jewelled Helvetia signed movement has a gold/copper finish and is running strong and keeping good vintage time.

The Helvetia brand name was first registered in 1880 by one of the 19th & 20th centuries most well known & widely respected watchmakers and entrepreneurs  ~  Louis Brandt …………  Mr.Omega !

With the loose translation being “Miss Swiss”  or  “Female Switzerland” /  “Mother Switzerland”   Loius Brandt certainly had a leaning towards ‘brand names with meaning’.

Patria ,  Helvetia ,  Omega  “Father of” ,  “mother Switzerland” and  “the end”.
I will have to give further thought to some of the other dozens & dozens of registered brand names which Omega owned & used.

Many fine pocket watches and wrist watches and pilots watches were produced by Helvetia and even though I am unsure as to their demise ,  it may have been a natural progression as was the case with other dial named Omega sub brands and their  change of direction to focus on their main brand name ,  that almost all of the modern world knows so well  ……….  OmegaΩ.

This Handsome Omega Helvetia Vintage Black Dial Gents Watch dates to the late 1950’s / early 60’s and remains in good condition throughout.
The lens has a scratch at the 1 marker and we will be replacing the plexi within the next few days and will be sold with a new plexiglass.

This watch is being sold with it’s original hard cased Helvetia watch box that also remains in great condition and it is always a welcomed bonus with any 60 or 70 year old watch if the original case is retained! The inner case also bears the retailers name.

This is a Handsome Omega Helvetia Vintage Black Dial Gents Watch from the late 50’s , retaining its original case and with the scratched crystal replaced ,   does / will present considerably better than the current pic’s suggest.

Being sold at a genuinely good price and offers great value for money!
