Featuring as Lot 140 in our Luxury Watch Sale, the Omega has an estimate of £10,000 – £15,000. It is likely to fetch more including fees.

Reference 165.024, these historic watches were purpose-built for military divers.

The “W10” back engraving signifies military use. A stainless steel case with calibrated bezel complements the watch, which also sports luminous hour markers and quarterly Arabic numerals.

Its movement is still working and the watch is in a remarkable condition for its age.
