  • Catalogue Essay

    An interesting period for chronograph wristwatches, the 1940’s was also an important period for manufacturers that was producing them. In an effort to sustain growth and financial success, Omega and Tissot joined forces to share resources after the financial crisis in 1929. The agreement was that Omega would manufacture the complex chronograph calibers and Tissot to manufacture the much simpler chronometer calibers. With that said, some examples from the 1940’s is double signed by Omega and Tissot.

    The present stainless steel chronograph wristwatch is double signed Omega and Tissot. Powered by manual caliber 5778 and encased in a 37.5mm stainless steel case, the present chronograph wristwatch from the 1940’s is a perfect watch to wear today.
