OriginTime sources some of the best timepieces which South Africa has to offer.
We aim to provide timepieces which don’t just look good, but also share with you their heritage – Whether it was a dress watch painstakingly created and beautifully finished by one of Switzerland’s greatest watchmakers, only used for the most prestigious occasions and events… Or a rugged, reliable sports watch, used by a professional diver to time their activities underwater, below immense pressure and at the mercy of the sea, with the ever-present danger of decompression sickness if they stayed underwater for too long.
This Omega is a Caliber 30T1, The uncommon predecessor of the famous caliber 30T2. Only 12000 30T1s were made and a good condition model can be hard to find. This 30T1 has a beautiful orange patina with a great condition movement and large 38mm case.
You may wonder how a watch can be brand new despite having been around for over a quarter of a century.
New Old Stock timepieces are few and far between, which is why we consider it a privilege to be able to share the vintage timepieces which are in the exact same condition as the day they left the shop with you. A watch which has no signs of wear at all, has its original box, papers and a caseback sticker is what differentiates new old stock from a regular vintage timepiece.
These watches can be very hard to find, but are a great opportunity to own a ‘time capsule’ from the past which is why many collectors consider new old stock watches extremely desirable and a great investment.
Should you wish to sell your watch, We would be more than happy to give you a generous offer on a wide range of brands from many different time periods as well as offer on watchmakers tools, books and spare parts which we would be able to put to good use.
