Omega 2777-1: the British military watches aura

IMG_6859

C’è una certa aura che circonda gli orologi militari britannici. Ad essere onesti, c’è un’aura che circonda la maggior parte degli orologi militari, ma quelli inglesi sembrano attirare più attenzione e ciò, spesso, si riflette nel prezzo. Mentre i MilSubs Rolex cambiano regolarmente mani per somme a sei cifre, si possono trovare orologi militari molto interessanti a prezzi estremamente ragionevoli. E’ il caso di questo Omega. L’Omega 2777-1 è stato prodotto nel 1953 sotto le specifiche della Royal Air Force britannica.

La produzione è durata un solo anno per un totale di 5900 pezzi. E’ amagnetico e animato dal calibro 283 alloggiato in una robusta cassa da 37 millimetri. Questi orologi come la totalità dei militari dell’epoca hanno originariamente luminescenze al radio. Il Ministero della Difesa britannico procedette alla sostituzione dei quadranti con dei nuovi con indici al Trizio e per differenziare questa serie dalla precedente, venne stampata la “T” sul quadrante sotto il logo Omega.

Questa serie si contraddistingue inoltre per avere la classica freccia un po’ più “grassa” infatti sono detti anche “fat-arrow”. Sul fondello come di consueto si trovano i punzoni relativi all’assegnazione, riferimento velivolo e codici NATO.

There is a certain aura surrounding military British watches. To be honest, there is an aura that surrounds most of the military watches, but those English seem to attract more attention and that, often, is reflected in their price. While MilSubs Rolex regularly change hands for six-figure sums, you can find very interesting military watches at extremely reasonable prices. And that’s the case of this Omega example.

The Omega 2777-1 was produced in 1953 under the specifications of the British Royal Air Force. The production lasted only one year for a total of 5900 pieces. It’s non-magnetic and powered by the caliber 283 housed in a sturdy 37mm case. These watches, as many of the military era, were originally made with Radium on dial. The UK Ministry of Defence proceeded to the replacement of those dials with a new one with Tritium and to differentiate this model from the previous, it was printed the typical “T” on the dial under the Omega logo. This series is also characterized by a “fat-arrow”.
