Vintage 14k Omega Ladies Wrist Watch
A beautiful 1960's Omega ladies wrist watch in 14k white gold. This beauty belonged to a wonderful lady named Helen Marie. Her initials are engraved on the back of the case "H.M.K".

The round case measures approx. 16.5mm in diameter and is accented both top and bottom by two natural 3mm diamonds. The watch is a 17 jewel caliber with 481 movement. The band is a Speidel Stainless Steel stretch and is has NOT lost spring back. There are NO cracks or breaks to the face crystal or the metal work. There are some light scratches from use and age (please view photos.) This would make a beautiful gift for that vintage loving lady in your life or yourself. Can also be used as a bride's "something old." Light and balanced so can be used daily. Let's see if we can find this beauty a new forever home.

Omega watches began in a small workshop established by Louis Brandt in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland in 1848. During first thirty years after it was founded, Brandt maintained a modest business, selling his watches to customers around the world. When he passed away in 1879, his sons quickly stepped in to carry on their father’s vision.
In 1885, the brothers released their first mass-produced caliber, the Labrador, and in 1892, they developed the first minute-repeating timepiece. Only two years later, they launched the 19-line Omega Caliber, which sent ripples throughout the watchmaking industry and would soon give the company its name.
In 1905, Omega took on a role as the official timekeeper at sporting events throughout Switzerland, and in 1932, it acquired one of its most vital timekeeping partnerships—the company earned its title as the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, California. The partnership continues to this day, having served as the official timekeeper for over twenty Olympic Games.
Just a little over a decade later in 1948, Omega watches introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster. The first Seamaster was rolled out to celebrate the company’s 100th Anniversary. To this day, the model is still one of the most respected watches in the Omega family.
