A very well-preserved and rare timepiece by Omega. The present reference 2608 shares shape of the lugs with the reference 2603 nicknamed "grasshopper". The only difference is the size - the 2608 is a bit smaller and measures 36 mm without the crown. The movement inside is a rare antimagnetic execution of the famous Cal.30T2 - manual-winding caliber 283. This particular watch is notable for its' attractive mint dial and excellent overall condition.
