Did you have any work done to this beauty, or is it just pristine because you left in a box for 48 years?

Believe it or not, neither. The original owner was very careful with it, as he knew that Omega watches were not cheap and should never be treated as such. And I'm certainly glad he did, as it was my uncle who received it from my parents as a wedding gift (my mom, his sister, hated his blushing shiksa bride, and so opted for a gift for him only, because he was, after all, her favorite brother). And, in the spirit of "what goes around comes around," my uncle left this amazing watch to me, his favorite nephew. I guess I could've put that all into the presentation, but I just wanted it to be about the watch. 8)

Thanks for sharing Mort. Often times the story about the watch is cooler than the watch itself. Fortunately for you both are equally cool!
