Omega chronometer (1946)
This is a manual wind Omega chronometer dating from the middle 1940s, featuring a chronometer movement (30T2RG) which was adjusted to keep very precise time. A chronometer is a watch that has passed strict independent tests of the time keeping under controlled conditions for a period of several days.
The 30T2RG movement is beautifully finished - the components are wonderfully polished and bevelled. There is a very interesting and detailed exploration of the Omega manual wind chronometers here
The stainless steel case is 33mm diameter. The dial is in excellent condition with no significant losses and the original metallic printing in the Roman numerals still glints as it catches the light.
The watch has been fully serviced and regulated and performance is excellent. It comes with a new old stock Omega strap and buckle.
Case diameter (excluding winding crown): 33mm
Case material: stainless steel
strap width: 17mm

Shipping guide for t-shirts:
All t-shirts on our website are now printed and shipped by an external supplier inside the UK. This means that if you place an order for both a watch and a t-shirt, they will be shipped separately.
Our supplier uses a Royal Mail tracked service for all shipments and this usually takes a little longer than our watches. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.
Please note, during busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare). These delivery times are a guide based on the carriers terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
