FS: Original 1953 Omega Fat Arrow British military watch

Excellent example of this rare British military watch only issued in 1953. The inside cover and case spring are the original parts; most for sale today have reproduction inside parts. The case finish is just stunning and the edges are very crisp, free of the big dings most Omega '53s show. Case back is also free of opening marks common on these special, thick unique Omega cases. You can spend your money on a modern Omega watch made to look like this, or have the real thing that saw military service. Produced in a very limited number only in 1953.
