Here we have a classic Omega “Bumper”, a wonderful example of an unique and beautiful watch design. This vintage watch comes with a crisp case in great condition and with sharp edges. Dating to the 1940s this classic model measures 34 mm. The dial is in good vintage condition with a beautiful overall patina. The luminous material on both - the dial and hands - have aged to a very pleasing deep yellow patina over the years. It has a beautiful two tone dial with subsecond register. The simple Omega-logo alongside the aged indexes and beautiful creamy colored hands are harmonious and well balanced. The crown is original. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a cal. 30.10 automatic movement, running strong and keeping time well. When wearing this watch you can feel the movement running and understand why it is called “Bumper”. The watch comes with a handcrafted leatherstrap in unworn condition. This Omega “Bumper” is a great timepiece and hard to find again in this condition. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling and perfect for everyday wear.
Omega was founded in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt. Out of this small watch manufacture grew a large company: In 1894, the famous 19-ligne pocket watch movement was developed and named “Omega”. Omega, as the final letter of the Greek alphabet, stands for the ultimate level in perfection and quality. In the 1930 the company entered into collaboration with the S.S.I.H. (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). Out of this collaboration the Swatch Group developed. Today, Omega is the flagship of this huge company. In 1932, Omega entered its partnership with the Olympics which continues till today. When in 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin accomplished the first moon landing there were equipped by Omega with the Speedmaster, and this so-called „Moonwatch“ is still regarded as one of the most significant watches in history.
