We found an interesting Omega Ref. 2603-1 dress watch that is scheduled to be sold at the September 18th New York Antiquorum auction. Despite being made in the 1940s, it comes in a modern sized 38 mm diameter (10 mm thick) polished yellow gold-plated steel case. The most notable feature is the beautiful ivory colored honeycomb¬†dial with applied yellow gold baton and dart indexes. Yellow gold feuille style hands display the hour and minutes. Subsidiary seconds are displayed at 6 o’clock.

The movement is manually wound Cal. 30T2 which is rhodium-plated with 15 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, cut bimetallic compensation balance, blued steel Breguet balance spring and index regulator. Snap-on caseback. AA condition. Lot 84 estimate $1000-$2000.
