Omega 2897 2898 1958 18k Rose Gold Cal 491 Seamaster Automatic Black Dial 34.5mmOmega
For auction is a 1958 Omega Seamaster 2897 18k rose (pink) gold caliber 491 34.5mm black texture dial automatic with rose gold tang buckle. A rare reference in general it is very rare with a black dial. The cherry on top of the rarity on this is the condition: dial and case are both excellent and this watch has survived 60+ years looking beautiful. The 'hundred lines' texture dial is the definition of classical beauty and the pictures don't do justice to how nice it is in the metal. A nice bonus is the original pink gold 18k Omega tang buckle which speaks to the original survivor condition.
