This Omega 1938 Pilot Watch was re-editioned to commemorate the Omega watch given to pilots who flew the Spitfire Mk1 and 2 at the start of WW2 and was also worn by many brave pilots during the famous Battle of Britain.
Only 4,938 re-editions were commissioned, and this timepiece is numbered 1699. However, I had sent it for a thorough servicing some years back and decided to replace the ENTIRE casing (minus dial and movement). Thus, the asking price of S$ 14,888.00 includes this additional casing as shown in the picture. This additional casing is numbered 4230/4938.
The new owner will thus enjoy the using of this watch in the replacement casing while keeping the original casing safe and sound. In fact, the new owner may just purchase the dial and Calibre 2200 movement, and voila! You have a second 1938 watch!
Items included are: Complete Watch, Watch Carboard Box Packaging, Watch Commemorative Wooden Box with Glass Door, Warranty Card, Signed Warranty Certificate, Leg Leather Belt with watch buckle straps*, 1 calf leather pouch, and 1 calf leather cloth.
* It was a common practice during WW2 for pilots to wear their watch on their thigh because of the thick gloves worn during flight due to an unpressurised aircraft cabin.
Additional items include the spare watch case (glass & bezel, watch case, movement housing, and back plate) and a brand new OEM watch strap for the 4230 case (as shown).
Yes, there are many who are selling the same watch at a cheaper price but there are not many who can produce all the above items to confirm originality and authenticity AND provide these spare items which are worth its weight in gold (as the old saying goes).
These items will last a lifetime while the price of this timepiece appreciates and you can wear this beautiful watch in its spare case while keeping the original case safe and sound.
A must have for the savvy watch investor.
