When it comes to choose the wedding watch, going vintage is obviously tempting, they usually look beautiful, they are restrained in size, and they have the same quality as a vintage getaway car, they are just more, interesting.
But if you are not lucky enough to have inherited a classic timepiece from a relative, or if you feel like your knowledge isn't good enough to source a perfect vintage piece, well there is a third option.
And it comes from OMEGA.
OMEGA's Museum Collection reflects the noble heritage of a great brand.
Outstanding timepieces are selected from the Museum ' they have to be more than fifty years old ' and are honoured with a reissue incorporating both traditional design excellence and OMEGA's innovative contemporary watchmaking.
The OMEGA Museum Collection No 9: 'Milestone 1941' features a black dial with a telemetric scale, a minute track and a tachymetric scale. There is a 30-minute recorder and a small seconds dial located at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions, respectively.
The 38 mm 18K white gold case is presented on a black leather strap. The caseback features a special Museum engraving and the watch's limited edition number.
This manual-winding chronograph is a COSC-certified chronometer and is powered by OMEGA's mechanical calibre 3203.
Although the 'MILESTONE 1941' doesn't come with a great patina or the great stories that comes with an original classic, you can definitely see the opportunity for you to own a timeless watch and live your own stories with it, starting from your wedding.
