The slogan for Omega SA, one of the best and well-known watch manufacturers in the world, is “Omega – Exact time for life.” For most of us, that is a mighty long time to be accurate and quite sufficient for personal timekeeping purposes. The last thing I need to know is that I was late to my own embalming.
But seriously, during the late 19th and early 20th century Omega staked their reputation of accuracy on their participation and performance in observatory trials focused on the science of chronometry — the art of extreme accurate timekeeping. Watch out X-games! You can’t make this shit up.
Only Omega and Patek Philippe had the wherewithal and cajones to participate in these trials every year back in the day. Thus, it is no surprise that they’ve made some badass watches that are not only beautiful, but reliable and accurate.
Such is the case of our featured watch, a 1964 Omega Vintage 550 automatic. This is a completely restored watch and features a 17-jewel Omega Caliber 550 Automatic Movement, stainless steel case, elegant black face, and a new premium calf-skin strap. It’s been tested and verified ready for service.
If you are perpetually late and looking for excuses, do not wear an Omega. But if accuracy and beauty are important, there are few better ways to keep time and look good doing it than a vintage Omega. This watch is currently offered on Ebay for a Buy-it-now price of $895.
