Very rare vintage Omega watch.

 This watch is steeped in rarity and history. A truly fantastic vintage Omega dating from 1913, and presented to Mr Horden - of the Horden Brothers company before he left for the Great War.

 This form of watch is based on the trench watches of the World War I era, and this one is the only one we have ever had that is in a solid gold case.

Made in 15ct gold, the condition is perfect. The reverse side is engraved with the following,

 "Presented by the employees of Messers Hordern
Brothers Sydney to Capt E D Hordern on the eve of his departure for the front
July 1915

 The enamel dial is in mint condition, with no evidence of damage or hair-line cracks at all.

As you can see, the watch sits in quite a unique way on the wrist. The 12 O'clock position is where the onion crown is, at the usual 3 O'clock position. This watch was made like this and has not been changed and is not a pocket watch conversion.

 The fully jewelled movement has been serviced, and runs perfectly.

 This is truly one of those finds that explains what vintage watch collecting is all about.
