This particular watch was a presentation gift to an employee of Continental Can Company, who must have had an unusual attraction to these models, as you tend to see them quite often. The inscription dates the watch to 1971.
The watch features the highly regarded 24 jewel Omega Automatic calibre 552, which was also used in the Omega Seamaster 300 dive watches from this period in the 1970’s.The watch was just serviced and is keeping excellent time.
The bezel on this watch is solid 14 karat gold and the rest of the case consists of a heavy gold cladding over a stainless steel monoblock body. The movement is accessed by removing the crystal and taking it out from the top of the watch.
The overall condition of this classic design is very good to excellent. The concentric “C’s” logo on the dial is very subtle and an interesting curiosity sure to garner more than a few questions form anyone that notices the watch on your wrist.
The watch measures 34.5 mm wide by 41 mm long and will be supplied on your choice of a black or brown leather strap.
