In 1930, in an effort to sustain growth and financial success, Omega and Tissot joined forces to share resources after the financial crisis in 1929. The two societies merged to form the first Swiss watchmaking association, the SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogère). At this period the company’s watches were, like the present watch, signed Omega Watch Co. Tissot. Lemania, also a SSIH partner, supplied the movements for the chronographs, called caliber 33.3 by Omega. The lot here offered is a very nice creation of a time-only rectangular shape watch: the stainless steel Art Deco-style case is definitely oversize for the times, it is slightly curved in order to wrap perfectly a wrist and has been preserved honestly during all time. The two-tone dial has painted Arabic numbers, outer tracks for minutes, rectangular subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock and the over mentioned double signature, “Omega Watch Co—Tissot”.
