This highly collectible and rare Omega 321 vintage chronograph reference 2279-1 was Fully Serviced by ClockSavant. Because of the watch’s black dial, silver markers, and silver hands, it is an unusual and interesting example of an Omega 321 vintage chronograph. As shown in the pictures, this vintage watch is beautiful and exudes a combination of an aviator feel with classic 1940’s elegance. We did not refinish the dial, but it was likely refinished sometime in the past.

We estimate the watch was manufactured in approximately 1948 based on its serial numbers and design.

Case has the typical scratches and dings that are common to watches of this age and add to its character. Similarly the dial shows some discoloration, again common for watches of this age. As shown in the picture of the case back, there appears to have been, in the past, a light inscription that is now barely visible due to being worn and polished over time.
