About the Model

In 1934, Omega introduced their famous hand-wound Calibre T17 movement. This tonneau-shaped movement was remarkable for being the first wristwatch movement available with a 60-hour power reserve, and for its great precision.

Circa 167’000 T17 calibers have been produced by the company from 1934 to 1943.

Many different “Art Deco” models have been commercialized during this period, with many variations in terms of shapes, dials, bracelets, and sizes.

For the UK market, cases were made by Dennison, the Birmingham based case-makers who made watch cases for a number of Swiss watch manufacturers, including Omega and Rolex. The case are therefore signed “Dennison Made in England” and “A.L.D.” which was also a Dennison signature. They also carry specific reference numbers along with the Birmingham UK 9ct hallmarks.

These watches are very popular among collectors. They are also practical and reliable watches to wear on a regular basis.

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.
