Omega Century 1956 vintage watch


Here is an uncommon vintage, 33.5mm. 1956 OMEGA CENTURY being all original including the signed, contract case, raised, gold coloured, dagger markers, original, (desirable) raised linen, black, quadrant dial with gold gilt print and uncommon, raised gold “Explorer style” 12,3,6,9 Arabic numerals. This dial has aged to a slightly lighter tone of black. The original, gold filled snap-back case is very nice, having no wear through on the gold fill. Note the correct, STAR contract case supplied to OMEGA and always used for the “CENTURY”. The manual winding, quality, caliber 284, gilt, OMEGA movement has been cleaned and is accurate. The OMEGA CENTURY is a very uncommon name and is hard to find as it was produced mainly for the Canadian market. This one is a great example!
