If only this dial was not redone...  Even if very well redone... 

It would have been mine. This movement is to die for.

How can you tell that the dial was redone?

sublime cool movement

Agreed, mon ami.

I haven't seen that dial before on a ref 2364. My initial sense . . .

. . . is that it's a prototype from one of Omega's contracted dial makers. The missing markers between 5 and 7 are the main indication it's not a dial that made it onto a production chronometer as Omega's QC would never allow such an obvious error to slip... 

Thank you Art for your kind feedback, I know your knowledge is huge when it comes to Omega. Actually I saw the exact same dial (yet with more patina) sometimes back on chrono24 see below images

The watch is now sold so hard to have more data, however, I felt reassured by the same dial with much more patina. What do you reckon ? ...  

I could tell the dial print of yours is immaculate . . .

. . . which led me to believe it was produced in the late '40s by one of Omega's contractors. I don't recall seeing that dial configuration before, though, and for that matter, don't recall any rg chronometers without a full read-out of minute tracks. I'l... 

I just consulted Erich's reference work on Omega chronometers . . .

. . . which didn't include a ref 2364 with your dial. There's two vaguely similar in the section devoted to ref 2364, but with out punched markers and vacated minute track. There's scant doubt in my mind that the dial of your 2364 was produced contemporan...

Most probably a legitimate variant

 By: mac_omega : May 20th, 2023-08:02
Hi all forumers, I am a bit late to the party due to time difference... IMO this is most probably a legitimate variant of a 2364 dial As Art has already mentioned there is a similarly designed (though different) dial vaiant with similarly embossed hour ma...  

I absolutely love it.

You knew . . .

. . . this was coming. ...  

Here's another image . . .

. . . not spoiled by . . . . . . my reflection on the dial. This wrist shot was taken before the crown and case tube were replaced. Art ...  

Hmmmmm, delicious.

There are two jumbo Ω chronometers in my collection, Nicolas: that ref 2366 . . .

. . . and this ref 2410. Keepers, both. ☺️ ...  

Lucky you!

Ay Ay Ay... Caramba!

 By: amanico : May 19th, 2023-14:12

Still gorgeous!

Do you have a shot of the original dial?

I tend to agree.

 By: amanico : May 19th, 2023-20:04

It really is.
