The Watch

This Omega Ref 166.053 is a Cushion shaped Wristwatch that has a Stainless Steel Case made from a single block of metal, with the Movement and Dial inserted through the front of the watch. A robust form of Case construction, by limiting the number of opening apertures to the Case, the Movement and Dial could be more firmly protected. 


The Watch boasts a handsome blue linen Dial that seems to change shade as you move it through the light. We've paired this with a NOS Condor stretch bracelet, that are coming back into fashion. A really nice piece.
