HANDS Original


The dial was made in the 1990?s on a gold plate, most likely in Geneva due to the high standard of craftsmanship. It was not commissioned by Omega, despite the Omega signature. This is a rare opportunity to compare a fine contemporary enamel work with the selection of vintage original dials offered in this session.
