Innovative watchmaking is the cornerstone of Omega’s heritage that is inspired by sports timekeeping, this is what is written on the Omega website showing that for all its history, it has always been specialized in the production of very reliable and efficient wristwatches. For this reason, in the 1960s the Pakistan Air Force decided to rely on Omega for the supply of a special model. The reference 135 004 was released in 1964, with baton hands in two versions: the first with fewer than 100 pieces with a serial number of 20’476’XXX such as the present watch, while the second with an estimated 100–200 pieces and serial number of 21’087’XXX. The present lot is a very nice specimen of this rare configuration: produced in stainless steel, the case has been preserved nicely with the engravings on the case back still very clear and deep. The dial has aged wonderfully now presenting a beautiful patina and a fascinating color of the indexes and hands. The crystal is still the original one and is demonstrated by the minuscule Omega logo found at its center. This is for sure the perfect and a very rare example of military watch.
