At least that’s the way I see this Stunning Original Omega Owned HELVETIA Classic 1940’s Vintage Watch !
A full size gents watch at 34m wooc , 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.
Handsome bronze or copper outer chapter ring , containing Arabic numerals of appealing font.
The center of this amazing watch is black apart from the large , engine turned decorated , sub seconds dial.
The flared original hands are absent of their lume , though to me I prefer such on this watch as it looks truly fantastic!
One of the most appealing time only vintage watch dials that I have seen , literally!!
I have seen more than the odd few 100,000’s of watches and this must be amongst the best 5 dials I have seen !
The 15 jewell Helvetia winder movement is also in fine original condition and running strong while keeping good vintage time as well.
At 34m wooc , this full size gents stunner will impress even the most harshest critic of true vintage watches!!
Dating to the early 1940’s , remember that fact when looking at the beautiful dial will minimal patina & aging!!
