Notes: The original owner of this watch won the watch in a contest in France that took place in 1973. This particular set is quiet interesting as it comes with the original letter from Louis Charles L. Brandt, President of Omega (Louis Brandt & Freres S.A.) in French congratulating the owner on winning the contest. A full translation is found below.
The warranty papers are stamped with Maison Brandt Freres SA in Paris (the Omega subsidiary there) and dated July 1973. The watch was delivered in June of 1973 and invoiced internally only in October of 1973, since the watch was part of a marketing giveaway.
The watch also comes with its original Moon box, however the insert is missing.
Overall, this is a very special set and highly collectible.
