VINTAGE OMEGA 1960s MENS CAL 625 14K SOLID GOLD ULTRA THIN DRESS WATCH + BOX
1. 14K solid gold
2. Ultra thin watch
3. True very rare vintage watch from 1960s
This Omega is one of the thinnest watches ever made by the company. There was a time when the big hitters of the watch industry (including the likes of Patek Philippe & Jaeger LeCoultre) were all in competition to squeeze a mechanical movement into a case size thinner than 5mm. As you would expect the bragging rights to construct the worlds thinnest watch perhaps got a little out of hand - the current record is only 3.65mm and is held by Piaget Altiplano 900P. Not surprising the watch is so thin that commercially the watch did not achieve many sales however the title for the World's thinnest watch is theirs.
At 5mm thickness this Omega is more sensibly sized for those seeking a watch that slips under the cuff effortlessly. Look and feel dapper at work or a black tie event with a classy vintage Omega like this. What also sets this apart from other vintage Omega's is the 14K Solid Gold case and original condition.
Comes with near mint condition Omega green watch box and a new aftermarket strap has been added to keep the classic styling. We can change the strap to plain black leather of brown if you prefer.
The movement is Mechanical Hand Winding. Overall condition would be 8/10 so expect very minor imperfections but as you can see from the high resolution photos the watch is in near mint condition. Please study the photos as this makes part of the description.

The reasons why Omega vintage watches are good to buy:
1. Value/Investment. They hold their value brilliantly and should actually increase in value over the next few years as they become rarer and rarer. Buying a brand new watch is like a car, as soon as it leaves the premises the prices drops by at least 20%. A vintage watch like this in excellent condition and serviced by a Omega specialist is very difficult to find.
2. Stealth Wealth. A leading American news commentator wrote an article regarding "Stealth wealth" - where this watch type is purchased by gentleman who tend to purchase things that are discrete and very sophisticated. Basically a subtle way to show off the exquisiteness of good taste.
