Omega oversized 2505-20
This 38 mm Omega Dresswatch is quite big for its age. Back in the Fifties non-military watches were smaller in size, about 34 to 35 mm. So its 38 mm makes it a Jumbo watch. The dial has some beaytiful details, such as the two-tone color, nice Arabic numerals as well applied markers and the subsecond. The light spots on the dial are due to its age and gives the watch its character. Please keep in mind the watch is from auround 1950.
