- Technical datas
Since 1862, when the first chronograph was created, man has never stopped improving his technical skills in order to develop his time-measuring instruments.
It is a watch with an additional mechanism to start, stop and reset the chronograph hand.
Omega is fully involved in the history of the chronograph. As early as the 1930s, the brand offers a range of fabulous models which are directly inspired by the genius of Louis Brandt, founder of a workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. These watches bore the Louis Brandt trademark and in 1894 it was renamed Omega.
The model presented here is an exceptional stainless steel chronograph around 1930 called 33.3.
It is a 37.5 mm diameter stainless steel case, a nice and useful dimension for that time.
A magnificent black lacquered dial with a tachymetric and telemetric scale in the center of the dial.
“33.3” refers to the calibre of this Omega developed in 1933 by Lemania, another branch of Omega. It is a hand-wound mechanical movement, with a column-wheel chronograph system.
This is a fine example of a success story. With this model, Omega, the undisputed master of historical chronographs, has succeeded in delighting fine craftsmanship’s enthusiasts.
