This is an example of the famed Omega Caliber 33.3 from 1944 in a rare and astonishing condition. The case and dial are in excellent original form. The movement is a Lemania based chronograph that was used by a number of manufacturers, but as finished by Omega and re-designated Cal 33.3 it became one of the most celebrated chronograph movements of the early 20th century.
The two tone, multi-scale, multi-color dial is untouched and remains vibrant and exquisite to this day. The Arabic numerals are gilt printed.
The lugs and case appear strong and are probably never repolished.
