Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Omega box or Omega paperwork. The watch comes paired with a brown leather strap with quick release that suits the watch perfectly. The watch is from Circa. 1965 and is in worn, vintage condition, but overall very good as you can see from the photos. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
Being 32mm I know a feel people will hesitate, to those people I would say this will surprise you, I personally feel we are seeing people gravitate to smaller watches as people are realising how comfortable they are, often it is just our own perception due to modern watches being mostly large, let's see how long it takes until people are regularly wearing 32mm/36mm.
