Omega Reference 14391-1

During World War II, Omega shifted their efforts towards producing simple and reliable timepieces on a large scale for various militaries. But after the war, Omega resumed its production of consumer pieces with a new approach - the new post-war Omegas were notable for their clean, legible dials and stalwart movements, making them a popular choice for a sharp-looking everyday watch. 

While the post-war years are remarkable for the introduction of the iconic Seamaster line in 1948, Omega also built a variety of what they called “Collection” watches. As automatics were becoming the norm, these pieces were powered by simpler but no less durable hand-wound movements, and often featured the very same cases and dials as their Seamaster cousins, making them more economically approachable - then and now.

Vintage Omegas have gained in popularity thanks to their affordable prices and classic looks, but this new allure has also made finding worthwhile examples a bit more difficult. This Omega Ref. 14391-1 dates to the late 1950’s and makes no qualms about its age. The once champagne-colored dial has developed a tremendous, deep orange patina over the years, giving it a distinctive character on the wrist. Powered by Omega’s Cal. 283 movement- a legend in its own right- and packed in a nicely sized 34mm steel case, this piece is a fantastic addition to any collection.
