1954 Omega Ref.2808-1 Extremely Rare 40 mm Case

Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Perhaps the biggest and one of the rarest models bearing 30T2-family caliber by Omega. While most of the watches offered by Omega back in the late 40s and the early 50s measured up to 35 mm and those which measured 38 mm are now considered as "jumbo", the reference 2808-1 measures 40 mm without a crown! Nevertheless, thanks to plain and elegant lugs it does wear comfortably and doesn't feel too big. This particular piece is notable for excellent overall condition and a pretty clean dial showing moderate aging - yet not disturbing but expressing certain vintage charm.

Professionally serviced in March 2018. Technical warranty: 1 year.
