Before Omega introduced their first Omega Constellation model in 1952, they first introduced a few of their unsigned chronometre models during the late 1940 to early 1950.  There were only a handful of these watches introduced into the market and they have became some of the most collectible vintage Omega timepieces in today's market.  However, since they are very rare to encountered only those collectors who are big time Omega fanatics will know and highly appreciate these watches.  The movement that goes into a vintage Chronometre of this era is also different from those of regular models.  Chronometre movements are different due to their luxury finish on some of their movement parts and have a special complicated regulator balance bridge as well.  The bumper automatic movement that is in this watch is an Omega caliber 352 with a serial number 12337986 dating this watch to 1950.  The movement has been professionally serviced and is running accurately.  The case model is 2516-5 and measures 33.6mm excluding the crown by 40.2mm from lug tip to lug tip.  Crown is original and signed.  Crystal is brand new.  The case is made of solid stainless steel with a solid gold bezel and is unpolished.  The factory original finished dial is nicely patina and aged.  Will come with a brand new 18mm genuine leather strap.  Wrist size in photo is 6 inches.  Let's just say, if you're going to miss out on this one, there may not be another that will look this great again for a very long time.
