    Hi all,
    as I'm raising funds in view of another purchase, I'm listing some watches I wear less than others.
    Particularly, I bought this Omega Suverän to a swedish collector back in january 2021, had it serviced just after receiving it and since then very sparingly worn. Reference is 2400-7 and according to serial it's from 1945.

    It must be said immediately that watch is completely original but, as you can see, logo and graphics on the dial are fading away. However, Omega logo is still barely visible under certain light conditions. This is not uncommon at all when it comes to Suveräns, especially on some types of dials; someone says that the lacquer used on certain dials reacts with the print and slowly dissolves it. Anyway, bullseye dial looks pretty untouched to me, just...fading.

    As for the rest, all stainless steel case presents some ageing and wearing and a ding on the upper left lug, otherwise is in pretty good conditions. Suverän logo is correctly present on the screw down caseback. Typical, original unlogged crown is there.

    Original dial, apart from fading, looks ok, with an even and warm patina. Indices have darkened but they really pop in the sun. Original syringe handset. Crystal is new (in some pre-service pics you see the old scratched one).

    30t2 manual winding movement looks nice and clean, it was completely overhauled by my trusty watchmaker in february 2021, although I don't have any receipt, and it keeps very good time.

    Watch comes head only.

    Please ask me for any doubt about the watch. I will reply as fast as possible: via mp here, email f[email protected] or whatsapp +393473071828

    Watch and me are located in Rome, Italy. I'm asking 450 euros shipped with tracking code and ensured with Secursus everywhere within EU. Overseas transactions are welcome with shipping costs and modality to be decided with buyer.
    Bank wire strongly preferred, a face to face in Rome is possible.

    I have some good feedbacks so far on OF at the following link, but plenty of references from other international fora and ebay to provide if needed:

    Before posting some pics, thanks a lot OF for the opportunity and thanks you all for looking.
    Alessandro

    As someone rightly pointed out, I forgot to mention the case size, which is 36mm without crown.
    Bump :)
