    I have been reading up on the larger early manual Omega references 2505, 2544, 2545. This is with a view to adding an example or two to the watch box. I came across two examples of the 2545 with the 283 movement but with both central sweep and subsidiary dial second hands.

    Any members that have other examples please share pics. Any archive extract that indicates this is a factory original feature.

    @hoipolloi do you still have this watch. What is your take on this - factory original our after market upgrade.

    This sold at Auction in 2008 and the second was posted on WatchProSite in 2010 by @hoipolloi

    Interesting. Any ideas why someone would want two second hands on a watch?

    Thanks for the links, these are a good read. Lots of opinion on both sides of factory original v's after market upgrade.

    Sadly, no evidence of an extract to indicate this configuration is factory original. I was wondering if Hoi might have got one for his examples.

    Don;t see the reason for it. If they had a 0 reset button for the sweep hand. Might get it, but think these are made up models

    Change a jewel and use 4th wheel from small second movement
