Description

Presenting this incredible Omega Calatrava from 1950 with ‘Tropical’ even patination throughout the dial. Note the pumpkin orange of the original hands, which offset the dial perfectly.

(360 PRESENTATION VIDEO AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST OR SEARCH NICOLAS WATCH CO. ON YOUTUBE)

The watch carries the classic Omega ‘workhorse’ calibre 265, which has been fully refurbished, using only genuine Omega parts where required. The case-back notes a reference 2495-18, presumed to be the case style number.

The dial is confirmed as original and has not been re-finished or amended in any way. The dial configuration is the rarer ‘3-9-12’ numerals with diamond shaped markers with small seconds dial at 6 o’clock.

The watch is confirmed as entirely original, having been recently refurbished by Nicolas Watch Co. A new genuine blue lizard strap has been added for completeness. The watch is presented in an original Omega box from the same period. Upon purchase, Nicolas Watch Co. will supply a certificate of validation.

This is a chance to own a highly individual sample of the classic Omega Calatrava, so popular throughout the 40s, 50s & 60s.

Viewing is highly recommended and can be arranged by appointment in Central London (Farringdon).

Please note more pictures will follows shortly.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
