This Omega was lying in my parts drawer until a client requested to have it saved. The movement is actually in very good condition, but the dial needs to be restored.

The movement is very clean considering how the dial looks.

Movement out of the case.

I have removed the autowinder bridges and I’m down to the base movement.

Old mainspring in the barrel.

The dial side has some plating loss, but no scratches or other damage.

Movement is cleaned.  I have sourced a new central second pinion as the old one was damaged.

I see that the balance moves freely after fitting the shock protection jewels.

We decided to have the dial restored in black and gold. Danafi in Spain did a stunning job!

The dial gets some new aged compound.

The hands where replated and look great.

The movement back in the case looking super!

Good performance for a 70 year old watch!

I fit the autowinder mechanism. The serial number suggests this Omega was made in 1947!

This is actually a stunning watch!

The dial is finished in a way where the inner circle is a shade lighter than the outside minute markers.
