Omega Vintage 26.5 Trench Watch Circa 1925 Rare Fays Melbourne Dial
Posted on November 29, 2021 | By admin
Omega 26.5T2 rare vintage trench watch. 32mm case size (approx). Approx 1924-25 based on serial. Suitable for gents or ladies. The case is rare in that it has omegas logo on it, rather than Denison, etc as was common. Almost unblemished white porcelain dial, tiny hairline crack, doesn’t detract at all looks wonderful like the day it was made. Great piece of history. Original omega cathedral hands. Clean serviced movement (3 years ago). Worn a handful of times to special occassions. New Hirsch leather strap (20mm lugs from memory) requires strap to be glued on or use of an open ended strap as the wire lugs are fixed. Not shock protected but can be worn without fear, it is a robust watch. Balance staffs are available and any competent watchmaker should be able to look after this watch for many more years to come. I had the case replated by Helvico in Canada 4 years ago, they did a wonderful job, all original service marks are intact, all the markings and Swiss machining still visible. You wouldn’t even know they did the work. Sad to see it go but I don’t wear it enough due to hot climate and fear of damaging such a beautiful watch. YouTube link of the watch running here.
