The watch is EXACTLY as it was found from the original owner’s family. Nothing was added, replaced, polished, swapped, cleaned, etc.
The crystal is scratched up but original with a skinny Omega logo on it.
Underneath is a perfect dial. No cracking in lume on hands which is rare on these. Also, this is an early dial with white printed T’s around gilt Swiss Made.
Bezel is the second looker on this one. You can see the print is “grainy” (unlike Aldo bezels) and it has mild signs of wear, but no cracks or chips. Most of these usually just fall off because of the thin layer of bakelite.
The caseback is extremely crisp and stamped 165.014-63 inside.
Movement is very clean. The screws aren’t damaged, no corrosion. Take a look at the flat gasket, indicating it has been there for a very long time without being replaced. I will guarantee the serial number to match to the watch and will order the extract of the archive from Omega for the buyer. If anything is not matching, full refund. That being said, the 20 million serial number perfectly matches the 1963 year.
Case is great, though I think it has been polished at least once. Skinny logo winding crown remains.
Bracelet is super tight and sharp ref. 7912 with original 6 end-links. Dated ’64 which is probably when the watch was actually sold to Omega agent and is original to the watch. The stretchable links are very tight.
