The eye of the connoisseur is immediately drawn to the beauty and exceptional original condition of this 18K gold chronograph. A large diameter case of 36 mm, the perfect size for vintage watch collectors, combined with the wonderfully untouched and gently aged dial showing no signs of intervention places this chronograph into the top league of desirable early vintage Omega watches.
In 1930, Tissot and Omega merged to form the first Swiss watchmaking association, the SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). At this period the company’s watches were, like the present watch, signed Omega Watch Co. Tissot. Lemania, also a partner in SSIH, made the movements which are Lemania caliber 15 TL, called caliber 33.3 by Omega.
