Offered here is a very rare and downright incredible Omega chronograph, circa 1940 the Reference 2393, powered by the famous Cal. 33.3 movement, which was the predecessor to the Omega Cal. 321 and 27CH. This watch is fitted in a large, oval-pusher 38mm steel case, and is fitted with a white two-tone sector-snail dial with radium markers. These watches are very difficult to find, and most have aged very poorly over the year. According to the Omega Archives (archive will be provided to the buyer), this watch was delivered to Hungary in 1940.
This example is in exceptional vintage condition, with an unpolished case and razor sharp case, and insanely mint dial with only the faintest radium burn above the 6 o’clock marker. The watch also retains its original radium lume on both dial and hands, aged to a nice pale yellow. These early Omega chronographs are adorned by collectors, and considered some of the most desirable watches in the vintage world – the watch offered here is truly the nicest we have ever seen, hands down, and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one as close to “new old stock” as you can find.
