This is a beautiful and rare Omega 321 vintage chronograph reference 2279-2 from approximately 1942 and represents one of the earliest examples of what was to become a legendary movement for Omega. This vintage watch was Fully Serviced by ClockSavant. We have included pictures of its disassembly and assembly and from those you can see that even under the covers, this watch is in extraordinary condition. The dial-side of the movement still shows its beautiful starburst finish as shown in the pictures. The case features its original factory edges and correct finish, very rare to find for a watch of this age. The dial, with its multiple array of coordinated telemetre colors, is beautiful. We did not refinish the dial on this watch; however, it was likely refinished at some point in the past. Its Fab Suisse Technical Dial is similar to other Omega 2279-2 dials we have seen.
