Rare Persian Numeral Dial / 1951
(Brazilian magazine advertisementfrom the 1950sexplaining the functionality of Omega Cosmic)
The Cosmic Moonphase was one of Omega’s premier models around the middle of 20th Century. During the booming post-war years, elegant, understated dress watches were all all the rage, and Omega was a master of the genre. Pre-war, Art Deco styled watches were the norm, but the military watches produced for European armies during WWII changed the tastes of men worldwide, and watches like the Cosmic came into fashion.
This Omega Cosmic Moonphase with Farsi (Persian) numerals is from 1951. A similar one in excellent condition was sold at Phillips for 150000 CHF in 2018.
The Cosmic collection was introduced in 1947 and Omega had it in production until 1956. At the time it was one of the most exclusive watches the brand could offer. The present watch is one of the extremely rare models (regardless of brand) to feature Arabic numerals and even rarer "2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12" hour index, day and month indication in Persian. The numerals are gold-ed and the he ultramarine blue outer scale color that indicates the day is perfectly matching the calendar hand. The present watch is charged with an old world suave personality giving us a glimpse into the bygone era of the “mysterious Orient”. A close cousin to Rolex’s iconic triple calendar moonphase reference 8171, its overall stunning looks, amazing condition and ultra-rare Persian calendar make this Omega a must have for the collector of rare and exotic timepieces.

Vintage watches are generally smaller than modern watches. Although our measurements are only approximates, they are a good indicator for the buyer to see if the smaller size will be an issue or not.
If a watch is not specifically indicated as "Serviced", we do not have its service history and cannot guarantee its accuracy. We highly recommend it to be serviced by a watchmaker for regular use.
Accuracy indicated in the Condition section is only based on 12 hours timegrapher test in one position (movement up or dial up). This is just a reference to help buyer understands the condition of the movement. We cannot guarantee its actual accuracy, and in our experience real world performance will be different.
