On a daily basis, we are inundated with requests for our suggestions on finding the "perfect" vintage dress watch. There are of course a multitude of possibilities when considering fine men's timepieces from the past century, but our criteria always remains consistent.
A proper dress watch should be thin and unobtrusive, cased in a precious metal, and feature a simple dial layout without unnecessary complication or clutter. Furthermore, it is entirely unnecessary to spend your whole watch budget on a dress piece - there are literally hundreds of fantastic options for relatively little money. Be it Early American, Japanese, or Swiss in origin, so long as these criteria are met you're on the right track.
When we spotted this 18K Pink Gold Omega 2894 from the 1950s, we knew it was a winner. The case is just the right size with a diameter of 35mm and a thickness of only 9mm, making it a sophisticated and elegant choice for the modern wrist. The matte silver dial features gold printed Arabic numerals and dart hour markers along with a lovely subsidiary seconds register at 6 with lovely guilloche patterning. A manually winding Calibre 30 Omega movement rests inside, which has been fully serviced and is humming along like it was new. There is just enough patina to the case and dial to really make it stand out and allow the wearer to proclaim his affection for historical timepieces without the excessive wear often seen on pieces of this age.
For all of you seeking that "perfect" vintage dress watch, look no further, this is about as perfect as they come!
