FS: Omega US Army 30T2 ref. #2179/5 #2966

Very nice condition on this WWII-era Omega US Army wristwatch, ref #2179/3. This reference number was issued to the US Army during WWII. Some had “US Army” engraved on the caseback; this one happens to be one without the engraving.

Asking Price $1900

This watch is powered by the iconic Omega 30T2 movement with 16 jewels and manual winding that looks very well preserved. The stainless steel case measures 35.5mm across without the crown and 42mm from lug to lug and is built like a tank with a screw-on caseback.
The dial has its original, completely untouched finish as well as its original luminous Arabic markers and original handset.

Everything on the watch is 100% original! The watch comes fully serviced including a new mainspring. It is running as it should and keeping a very good time. It comes ready to wear on a handmade “vintage” suede leather strap. The strap looks great on this vintage timepiece.
