Why We Love It

In our minds, there are few minimum requirements for a proper dress watch: svelte design, a solid movement, and minimal flourishes. 

Featuring a gold-capped stainless case, silver sunburst dial, automatic movement, date function, and thin lugs, this beauty checks all the boxes. The best part about vintage Omega dress timepieces is their value proposition - they are beautiful and truly historic dress pieces available for a fraction of the price of similarly aged sports models, and are on the upswing!

If you're looking to round out your collection with a delightful vintage dress piece, look no further!

The Story

In the aftermath of World War II, Omega, the prolific Swiss manufacture that had poured most of its production efforts into military-grade wristwatches for pilots and officers, dusted itself off and dived headlong into producing consumer pieces once again.  But unlike the pre-war years, Omega sought to build watches that could be worn in more everyday conditions, watches that could look good on the wrist while also standing up to the onslaught of travel, weather and daily use.  

Many of the watches produced in the years immediately following the war were infused with the lessons that Omega had learned while producing reliable wristwatches for servicemen; they used stainless steel cases with simple, stalwart movements, kept dials uncluttered and legible and dotted them with radium for added visibility in low-light environs.

Even with these style notes coming right out the war-time guidebook, Omega took care to make their new consumer pieces beautiful, using yellow and pink gold as it once again became available, and introduced a variety of dressier executions.  While the noteworthy Seamaster line was being driven largely by Omega's automatic movements, other pieces, like this one, were filled with simpler, durable manual-wind movements, making the the overall product more economically approachable to the average consumer.
