1964 the expert omega buying on advice

Expert (buying) advice on the Omega 1964
#1
0
The Omega pictured in this thread from 1964 has the hand wound caliber 601. Gold capped and at 33 mm it is the entry level watch of quality for  the old school gentlemen. This one has developed an interesting and evenly spread patina, often however this is not the case (pun intended) and the dial should be considered as "just junk". This of course explains many a redial; it's a fact of life, Omega watches of the 50s and 60s do not always maintain their integrity and dial decay sets in. Usually the case shows tell tale signs as well. Is a redial to be preferred over just junking the watch? You must decide, and spend accordingly. Prices therefore range between 250 and 1500 USD.
