Omega CK 2078 Chronograph
This lovely WWII-era Omega chronograph might be small in size but has enormous historical significance. The Staybrite steel case houses Omega’s legendary cal. 28.9 CHRO T2 movement. This movement was Omega’s first foray in chronograph wristwatches and was only produced from 1932 until 1943. This historically important caliber eventually gave way to the larger cal. 33.3 and the cal. 321 that was used in the Speedmaster.
The 33-millimeter steel case has elegant straight thin faceted lugs and oval chronograph pushers. The watch comes with a beautiful and untouched multi-color dial with two different chronograph scales: a blue tachymetric scale and a red/blue telemetric scale. A similar reference, with an even rarer black dial, sold at the 2017 Phillips auction for a whopping 25,000 Swiss Francs. We are proud to be able to offer you this piece of watch history for a fraction of that price!
