Dear All

For Sale is this Omega 1953 RAF MOD “Thin Arrow” Pilots Wristwatch

These watches were originally issued with “Thin Arrow” radium dials. However, these were considered too dangerous by the MOD when stockpiled and they were therefore recalled and redialled with safer Tritium “Fat Arrow” dials.

The watch for sale features the very scarce MOD “Thin Arrow” dial which is considered by many to be an even rarer find than the original radium “Thin Arrow” dial of which only a few hundred examples are thought to still exist.

Only 5,900 of these watches were ever manufactured and issued to the RAF in May 1953. Consequently, they are rather appropriately referred to today as the “53 Omegas”.

The watch for sale is in excellent overall condition having been recently serviced by one of our highly skilled and experienced horologists.

The dial is in lovely condition with no obvious flaws or blemishes.

The sword hands, seconds hand and crown are all correct to the original specification of the watch.

The casing is in excellent condition with very few noticeable marks or scratches. There are some very light surface scratches to the glass in places.

The 283 calibre movement is in very good condition and is currently running well and keeping excellent time and includes its original magnetic deflector dust cover and retainer ring (replacement).

The watch diameter is 37mm.

The watch is listed for sale on our website priced at £4,495 which includes a newly fitted NATO strap and quality hand-made leather watch pouch. This price includes free shipping for members of Chronotrader!
