About the Model

OMEGA’s reference 2384 was produced for both civilian and military (reference 2179) purposes in the early 1940s, and its overall design upholds those basic tenets of early military watch specifications.

Designed with an elegantly simple and legible luminous dial with sweeping center seconds to avoid clutter, a screw-down caseback, and a brushed steel case rather than polished steel. The syringe hands are seen on other military wristwatches of the era; however, the radial numerals are quite unusual and distinguish the military version.

The watch is fitted with the famous calibre 30T2, also used in the “Dirty Dozen” military watches issued to U.K. armed forces.

About the Brand

In 1848, Louis Brandt founded a company in La Chaux-de-Fonds which would become Omega. In the 1880s, the Louis Brandt & Fils company moved to its current site in Bienne and in 1894 the caliber Omega was created, which would give its name to the company. Renowned for its precise, innovative and affordable watches, it became the largest supplier of watches to the British Army during World War II. It also became the first company to time the Olympic Games in 1932. Among its range of numerous professional watches, the Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the moon in 1969.
