"Presented to A.W. FLack By W.J. Bush & Co Ltd. in appreciation of 40 years loyal service 1957" That is the lovely and well-done engraving on the back of the watch, from a little bit of digging W.J. Bush & Co Ltd, was a business founded by William John Bush in 1850/51 when he acquired a factory that steam distilled multiple items from herbs, spices, essential oils etc... A.W. Flack remains unknown, but what we do know is in 1957 it was his 40th year with the company! They must have been good!
The great thing about watches is the stories they hide within themselves that we never truly uncover unless the story is passed along with the watch, which is all part of the fascination. Thankfully this story is locked away in a beautiful Omega dating from 1957, applied Arabic numerals which catch the light beautifully and a nice oversized sub-dial, long and sharp hands that also catch the light! Even at 33mm it wears incredibly well and looks amazing!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is all original with patina visible on the dial, the watch has no service history and one would be recommended if this watch was to be worn regularly. The watch runs well currently.
This is what makes watches great! Gems like this come around every so often and you wish you could keep them all! Unfortunately, I cannot keep them all, so I get to offer them to you!
