    Hello team,


    after some time of "silence" I have decided to write a short post as I had some leisure time today.

    As usual I want to share one of the lesser common pieces out of my humble collection - this time a rectangular from the 30ies - specially for the lovers of these watches. (Yann, I am sure you will love it).

    It is a so called "swivel lug" (articulated lug) watch, sometimes also called a driver´s watch, because the lugs are movable to better fit the wrist.
    It seems to be in all original condition, including hands and winder.
    Here you can see the back side

    The SS case houses a fine 15 J. Cal. T17 in nice overall condition - this movement has a power reserve of more than 60 hours!

    enjoy!

    That is beautifully crisp, from the movement to the case and dial, superb example

    What a fine watch, and as the others have said really outstanding condition, it looks to have been extremely well kept.

    Hi,
    incredibly well preserved!
    It's a CK 695, here in the 1940 catalog :

    Mine is in a poor condition compared to yours, but says hello anyway (I've changed the bracelet since I took the picture...) :

    Very nice and uncommon watch. The ultimate driver's watch by Omega from this period remains the pupitre IMHO.. (just say that because I think you have a perfect example of this one too!).

    Have you guys actually pressure tested these. I'm curious to know how well they stand up against moisture.

    No it is not. If I recall correctly I bought it from Germany (off the bay) some years ago...

    "Holy revival of a dormant thread, Batman!"


    but well worth a bump with such a nice example, and with that new-fangled Stainless Steel! It'll never catch on!
