For years I never encountered an Omega 'No-Name' Globemaster, later believing that most of these early calibre 354s exported by Omega to the U.S.and marketed as Globemasters had been redialled in the full Constellation livery.
Such are the riches of an increasingly globalised watch market, that, over the past twelve months, five have surfaced. The first I encountered was a cross-hair dialled example owned by Norman Garbaccio and featured in an earlier post (pictured above).
I had fairly well given up hope of seeing many others, but, knock me over with a feather, four have emerged intact recently, and I'm pleased to say that I acquired one of them. Two of these examples appeared on eBay and were not marketed as the rare pieces they indeed are.
Suffice to say, if you ever encounter one of these truly historical pieces, snap it up!
UPDATE Nov 2.
I have written an essay on 'No-Names' in an attempt to produce something definitive about the origins of these historical American pieces. Please click here to download the file
