Vintage OMEGA [Swiss] Professional Store 10 Watch Collector's Display Case EXTRA LARGE. For the serious Omega collector, this is an original store display case. It is very big and very heavy, making me believe that it is made of wood, which is dressed with felt inside and leather outside. It measures approximately 38 x 29 x 9.5cm [15 x 11 1/2 x 3 3/4] and weighs 4kgs [almost 9lbs]. For a vintage used case I would say the condition is pretty decen and I would personally use it as it is now to be honest.
I have not tried to professionally clean the case which, I think if done, it would make the case look even better. The condition of the leather is good. Because of the light brown hue you can see some darker areas especially on the corners and sides. The felt is in very good condition and, again, because of the light colour, you can see some darker areas which I believe would [up to a point at least] become cleaner if washed professionally. When fully open, the top side swings all the way to the back and'rests' on the same level as the bottom part, thus creating a'presentation tray'.
Imagine you are sitting across the table from me, I open the case all the way, I would have the 10 watches on my side and the flat presentation tray on your side. Ingenious system if you ask me! Style-wise I'd say the case is from the 1960's. Feel free to ask me for whatever clarifications you might need. Extra: Try my Localtime straps!
These beautiful straps were handmade in Italy to my own specifications and come in 5 sizes: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18 and in 8 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue and grey blue.

I was born and raised in Cyprus, a small island in the Eastern Mediterranean, now a member of the European Union. My studies took me to Switzerland, the USA, Germany, and England. I did not, as you might think, study to become a watchmaker but rather a hotelier. As such, I spent most of my professional life as a hotel manager. Over time, I have actually come to understand that watch restoration and hospitality have a lot in common.
In both instances, I have found myself taking care of people or products that were with me for a brief period of time. As a hotel manager, I was content at the end of a visitors stay in my hotel when they would give me a warm smile and an appreciative farewell.
I love what I do and I take pride in doing it the best way possible in order to maintain the original integrity of each vintage timepiece. I would also be happy to hear from you if you would like to have a watch restored.Be it a family heirloom or one from your collection, my colleagues and I will do our best to return it to you healthier than when it got to us.
