Omega Chronograph 18k Cal. 321 1956
Ask any true watch collector about the greatest movements ever designed and there is a strong chance they will affectionately mention the Lemania Calibre .321 movement designed by Albert Piguet. Utilized in the original Omega Speedmaster during the American Space Program missions in the 1950s and 1960s, this workhorse movement has become a thing of legend, and deservedly so.
Our particular watch, the Reference 2279, comes in a 35 mm rose gold case with crisp case and beveled lugs. Accents like the awesome rose gold hands and arrow hour markers complete the classy look of this piece. Our chronograph is bearing the caliber 321, making it a dressier option for the collector who desires a caliber 321 but don't want a Speedy. It comes in outstanding condition which you can rarely find on the market.
