Catalogue Note

There are large Omega pocket watches called 'Goliath', and there is the present lot that can be dubbed a 'Super Goliath', as it features an incredibly large case measuring 139mm in diameter. Probably made as a salesman sample used to display and promote the more common 'Goliath' watches, its movement is small in comparison, and causes the subsidiary seconds to be positioned unusually high just underneath the centre of the watch. An Extract of the Archives from Omega confirms that this timepiece with 8-day power reserve was produced in 1928 and delivered to Uruguay.
