1950 Omega 'Jumbo' in 18k Rose Gold: A Timepiece of Grandeur and History
Experience the grandeur of the Omega 'Jumbo' from 1950, a watch that not only tells time but also narrates a story of post-war optimism and the evolution of watchmaking. This 37mm timepiece, with its striking two-tone dial and classic design, perfectly fuses vintage charm with modern proportions.

The Era of the 'Jumbo'
In the aftermath of World War II, Omega, like many watchmakers, began producing 'Jumbo' watches, a term denoting their larger-than-average size. These watches symbolized a shift in social norms and style preferences, as people embraced boldness and visibility in design after years of austerity. The 37mm diameter of this Omega 'Jumbo' was considered exceptionally large for its time, making it a statement piece that reflected a newfound societal confidence and the desire for watches that were not just functional, but also eye-catching and expressive.

Two-Tone Dial: A Classic Aesthetic
The two-tone dial of this 1950 Omega 'Jumbo' is a beautiful representation of the era's artistic expression in watchmaking. It provides a stunning contrast and depth, enhancing legibility while exuding an air of elegance and sophistication.

Powered by Calibre 265
At the heart of this Omega 'Jumbo' beats the calibre 265, a manual wind movement known for its reliability and precision.

Collaboration with Case Makers
This timepiece also tells a story of collaboration in the watch industry. During this period, it was common for watch manufacturers like Omega to use third-party case makers. This practice allowed for a diversity of designs and the inclusion of different materials and techniques (another more likely reason is the tax savings it offered!). The 18k gold case of this Omega 'Jumbo' lacks any Omega branding to the inner case back. For transparency, it's important to note it's not possible to say with 100% certainty that this is the original case. That said it is very attractive and it wouldn't be the first non-stamped case from this era we've seen.

A Collector's Jewel
For those who who are drawn to the soul of vintage watches but are often put off by their smaller size, this Jumbo Omega could be the watch for you! It's large case, distinctive dial, and robust movement make it a coveted piece for collectors and enthusiasts alike, symbolising a significant era in Omega's storied past.

Condition Report

Condition Report: Presented in overall good vintage condition. The dial remains in good order with only the occasional mark and may have been professionally restored in the past. Overall the case is in great shape given its age. There is however a slight loss of material to where the caseback meets the case. It's not noticeable when worn and doesn't detract from the beauty of the watch. The movement has been serviced and finally we've fitted it with a new strap. Please note the watch uses open ended straps and in the photos the strap ends were yet to be pressed flat.
