Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]

FS: Omega Ranchero 2990-1, '58 (PRICE REDUCTION)

Reposting with a price reduction. Omega Ranchero 1958, Ref. 2990-1. I'll let the pictures tell most of the story.

Like the Seamaster 300 in my other FS post, this watch has been purchased from a very reputed dealer in Italy, whose details can be provided on enquiry for verification.
Everything seems original to the watch, which was serviced prior to being purchased a year ago.
Movement: 17J, manual wind, cal. 267, signed Omega, numbered. Working flawlessly and keeps absolutely perfect time.
Dial: Black and beautiful, with some radium burns and stunning radium plots.
Hands: All authentic, though the second hand is devoid of the usual white color.
Case: Original snap back, signed Omega Watch Co with 2990 1, original Omega crown.
Bracelet: The stunning 7912 shown (in almost NOS, unstretched, all-links condition) is obviously EXCLUDED from the sale/price, along with the no.4 end-link. I might sell it together/separately for the right price. I'll include a beautiful Horween leather strap however.

For sale at a very reasonable $5,350. Payment by Bank Transfer. Will ship it insured at actuals.

I'm based in Dubai, UAE. Please email me at
