We have a 1958 example of an Omega Automatic, Ref: 14716/7-3 SC. The dial is silver with gold baton indices, crosshair subdial and patina. The case has undergone a full restoration, polishing it back to base metal, cutting the edges back into the case and then being gold plated, leaving a perfect case.
The movement is the Cal: 490, produced in 1956 before being replaced in 1957 by the Cal: 500 and later 1959 by the Cal: 550’s that are most commonly found in vintage Omega’s around this time. This period in Omega’s history was fast paced with the rapid development of automatic movement’s in such a short space of time.
As part of the restoration we only replaced the crown and strap, alongside the case restoration. The movement has been fully serviced and regulated to be a daily wearer if desired.
We love projects like this watch as the watch undergoes a full transformation, allowing us to showcase our skills to the fullest. A wonderful vintage timepiece ready for a new home. It comes with our service box and paperwork, along with 12 month warranty.
