The Omega "Medicus" was the brands first wristwatch to feature a central seconds hand, this made the watch easier to read and bigger. The watch quickly became known as the "Nurses' watch" due to how beneficial the central seconds was for medical staff during the second world war. The Medicus became an import watch for Omega and for its history and now is highly collectible! The references dates from 1935-38 and was faithfully restored by SwissTec to an incredible standard of both the dial and the case, looks absolutely incredible both on and off the wrist!
The dial has been finished to a very high standard and the hands match perfectly, giving the edge the watch would have originally had. The case sits nicely on the wrist at 33mm, perfect for the person not afraid of smaller watches. Housed inside is the ever reliable Cal. 23.4 which is a true work horse of a movement by Omega!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork. This watch comes on an original Omega strap with buckle. The watch was professionally and faithfully restored by SwissTec and comes with a purchase receipt from Austin Kaye from 2016. The watch was serviced in 2016 and is running well.
A great vintage watch of high quality, prestigious brand and true history does not have to cost thousands! This watch proves that perfectly and this is why my love for Omega is so strong! Even in my personal collection I have an Omega from 1944, I suspect it will never leave... I suspect this won't leave your collection when it gets there!
