1958 Omega Calatrava Automatic In 18k Gold


This vintage Omega watch reminds me of the Patek Philippe Calatrava in its simplicity and exudes the same finesse. The polished Dauphine hands, gold baton markers, and spectacular gentle patina that has appeared on this completely original dial draws the eyes. On the wrist, the gentle patina looks more even and the age spots are only lightly visible. Further, this watch looks larger than the 34.5mm size of this 18k solid-gold case due to the narrow bezel. This watch was stored for decades and appears to have not been polished, with sharp edges and deep 18k hallmarks. The Omega winding crown is correct. The caliber 501 automatic movement is shimmering like new and is one of the cleanest movements I’ve found in an Omega of this age. The 16 million serial number dates this watch to about 1958.
