2.0399 OMEGA ladies cal. 483, SWISS 1963

£240.00 (incl. VAT) £216.00 (incl. VAT)

An absolutely diminutive Omega ladies watch from 1963. At just 17mm in diameter, this is the smallest watch we have in stock at present! Though it looks solid, the case body is actually has an extra thick 40-micron plating of gold, meaning it can be polished and engraved without damaging the plating. A charming piece from a respected brand, the manual wind timepiece is powered by a tiny but peppy Omega 483 movement with a 42 hr power reserve.

About Omega

They were chosen to be the official timekeeper for Britain’s Royal Flying Corps combat units in 1917, and then again for the USA Army in 1918. They were the official choice of NASA, and the first watch on the moon in 1969 for the Apollo 11 mission. The list goes on and on… Omega has been the official timekeeper for the Olympic games since 1932, has been worn in all the James Bond films since 1995; other patrons of the company have included Buzz Aldrin, Elvis Presley, and John F. Kennedy.
