There is something about a silver sector-dialed timepiece that gets the blood of every watch enthusiast pumping.
It might be the casually cluttered nature of the dial configuration with the added chapter ring and graduated scales, it could be the slightly 'sportified' nature of printed Arabic quadrant indices, or it could even be the subtle tonalities of silver that play against each other, adding a visual depth and allure that only a true enthusiast can explain.
This particular Omega 'Calatrava' dress watch dates to circa 1939 and features what would have been considered an oversized 37.5mm snapback case, housing a patinated silver sector dial with painted indices and a matching blued-steel swordhandset and Omega's hand-cranking Calibre 26.5 movement within.
Remaining in very good, untouched condition, this piece harkens back to the last days of peace in Europe before the start of the Second World War, and wears its patina gracefully as an unmolested talisman of times past.
From its crisply printed stylized logo to its oversized subsidiary seconds register, this is without question a veryspecial watch for the discerning collector who understands the undeniable charm and character that itunapologetically offers.
