    With Omega Extract of the Archives confirming the production of the present watch on 20 August 1938 and its subsequent delivery to Sweden.

    An enthralling example of 1930s design, the present piece is defined by its stunning two-tone sector dial, a style typical of the period, and by the angular rectangular bow, a very attractive art deco detail.
