OMEGA CALATRAVA | MODELL TEDDINGTON
Stunningly elegant and in exceptional condition Switzerland, 1954s
VERY RARE RED STAR FOR THE BRAZILIAN MARKET | MANUAL WINDING | ART DECO DIAL | STEEL | 266 CALIBER | 35 MM (36,5MM MIT KRONE) | REF. 142.65532 | VERY NICE MODEL INCL. REFRESHED DIAL | 1954s SWITZERLAND
Technically, this Omega works perfectly and is freshly serviced: (288°; +8s/d).
This Omega Teddington was only made for the Brazilian market and was produced in limited numbers. The red star under the Omega logo means this watch is caliber like the watches that broke all records in the 1940 Kex-Teddington precision competition.
Since this model was only produced in limited numbers and only for the Brazilian market, it is very difficult to find an example today, more than 70 years later, with the original dial and with this professional refreshment. A true collector's watch, also very functional for everyday use.
Omega SA was founded in Switzerland in 1848 and is now a subsidiary of the Swatch Group based in Biel.
Founded in 1848 by 23-year-old Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds to manufacture watch parts under the brand name "Louis Brandt", the Omega name first appeared in 1894 for a newly developed watch caliber. To date, the company has developed many innovative watches and models that are now known worldwide such as Constellation, Seamaster, Speedmaster and De Ville.
Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet and stands for exceptional quality and metaphorically for "perfection". As one of the highest quality brands in the world, the brand has many fans and the recognition of professionals for building watches for special purposes such as sports, pilot and professional diving watches.
At the Summer Olympics, Omega has been the Official Timekeeper for all Olympic disciplines since 1932 in Los Angeles, London 2012 and Rio 2016. In space travel, the Omega Speedmaster Professinal was selected by NASA as the official astronaut watch to this day, e.g. for the Apollo 11 mission, making it the first watch worn on the moon. James Bond film fans have been a regular reunion since 1995, when Omega began official sponsorship of the films - from Golden Eye in 1995 to Casino Royale in 2006.
Among the well-known brand ambassadors we see Michael Schumacher, George Cloonery and Cindy Crawford. Several special models of the Speedmaster were even made for Michael Schumacher.
