Vintage Omega bumper automatic watch dating from 1950

Bumper automatic movements are an early form of the automatic movements common in watches today, and were one in which the movement was restricted from completing a full 360° and the rotor would literally "bump" back and forth as it is being worn, and here is a brilliant vintage Omega bumper automatic watch dating from 1950.

Early bumper automatic Omega watches are becoming so collectable and they feel great to wear on the wrist and feel that mechanical interaction that is lost on quartz (battery) powered watches today. Even though this watch dates from 1950, it is still able to be worn on a daily basis where it will no doubt get the attention and admiration that it deserves.

Made in a 14 carat gold filled case that measures 34mm across plus the crown, don't be misled by the millimeter size and think that this will look small on the wrist, as thanks to the wide bezel, and beautiful dial, it makes such a presence on the wrist.

The dial is just gorgeous and has the most wonderful patina that is all original and has not been repainted at all. Complemented with both numerals and those gorgeous triangular index markers, there is also the sub0seconds at the bottom. The look of this Omega is just perfect and exemplifies the style and character of the 1950's.

Inside as mentioned is the bumper automatic movement which is a 17 jewelled Omega calibre 342 that has just come back from a full service, runs perfect and comes complete with our twelve month warranty.

This is a great classic Omega that will not only look goo but feel good on the wrist.
