FS: Omega Chronograph 2279-1 Cal 321 1948 - Fully Serviced $2950


This highly collectible and rare Omega 321 vintage chronograph reference 2279-1 was Fully Serviced by ClockSavant. Because of the watch’s black dial, silver markers, and silver hands, it is an unusual and interesting example of an Omega 321 vintage chronograph. As shown in the pictures, this vintage watch is beautiful and exudes a combination of an aviator feel with classic 1940’s elegance. We have seen similar dials in the past on an Omega 321. We did not refinish the dial, but it was likely refinished sometime in the past.
