The present Omega CK 2077 chronograph is an astonishing object and a very rare wristwatch for its unusual dial layout combining the two tone black and tachymeter scales dial, all in very good overall condition. When reference CK 2077 was first launched in 1937, it was Omega’s first water-resistant chronograph and can also be considered a turning point in the firm’s history equipped with the famous caliber 33.3. This manual winding movement is an icon among collectors: it was firstly introduced as a mono pusher in 1933 but was later readapted and used for two pushers chronographs given birth to the first water-resistant watch. As we have seen, the present timepiece is a wonderful, early example of these water-resistant chronographs with its oversize, for that time, stainless steel case measuring 38.5 mm and two round pushers in contrast with the classic olive or square buttons. The screw back in still very fresh with clear engravings “waterproof model+depose”. The black dial is wonderfully aged with its Arabic indexes and the white tachymeter scale in contrast and is completed by the fantastic steel bracelet. This watch is also published on “Omega Sportswatches” by John Goldberger at page 20.
