Gent’s, 18k rose gold, manually wound, civilian dress wristwatch with hand stitched leather strap and rose gold tang buckle with Omega horseshoe, omega calibre 28, Ref. 2395/3, made by Omega , Geneva, Switzerland circa 1947.

Case: 34.5mm diameter, three leaf, solid,polished and brushed, 18k rose gold, sharp shaped lugs, outer back cover not seen but the inside of the cover has an immature version of the Omega logo, the example introduced in Switzerland prior to 1900, case no. 10768623, a diamond shapecameo with ‘750’ for the quality of the gold (.750%) or 18k gold. The watch case is integrated with a hand stitched leather strap and gold tang buckle with Omega logo.

Dial: Two tone gilt dial with enamelled Arabic hours, open dotted minutes to the outside, subsidiary seconds @6, pink gold feuille hands and the dial marked, “Omega, Fab. Suisse”.

Movement: This appear to be the nickel split plate round movement that began as the omega calibre 28, a thin lever movement with manual winding, diameter 28 mm vibrating @18000 half oscillations per hour, 17 jewels, made with both small and center seconds, very similar to the caliber 30 but thinner. Introduced to the market in 1944, but after 1949 became the calibres 360, 361, 370 and 371. Caliber 28 was made between 1944 and 1949. Dial, case and movement triple signed. It was made similar to the Omega calibre 17.8 with a laterally positioned escapement and the pawl click contacting the large exposed  wheel was on the far side of the wheel rather than at the bottom where is ended up being placed during the 1950’s. The calibre 17.8 was a rectangular shaped movement that was held inside a round case. Movement serial number is 10360669 dating to the circa 1947+/- years. Condition: Case – Excellent. Dial – Very fne with some mild wear to the hands. Movement – A clean original and genuine
example and fully functional. I have listed some of the diferences from the more usual calibers of omega movements, such as the calibre 265, one of the calibres with the clock at the bottom of the great wheel.

Some of the diferences of the calibre 28 movement from the calibre 265 (a more commonly seen Omega movement)

1) diferent position of the click

2) ratchet and crown wheels have a bevel on the edge and polished teeth in this area

3) diferent movement holding screws (domed vs fat at the Cal. 30 family movements) plus other position to one of the bridge screws

4) diferent position of the serial number

5) diferent angle at this point of the bridge

6) diferent position of these 3 jewels

7) no shock

8) much wider bevel on the edge of the movement

A very nice watch in Rose Gold, these are not common.
