In 2001 Omega launched the Museum Collection, a group of limited edition models based on vintage watches, taking inspiration from watches in their Museums collection. The new models were all based on original designs that were at least 50 years old. One of the limited edition models that Omega produced was the Museum Collection 1938 Pilot’s watch, as a numbered limited edition. Omega also released a similar watch in Japan as the Japan Only Edition.
Both the Museum Collection and the Japan Only Edition featured a 40mm case, the same diameter as the original pilot’s watch which it was based on. The original watch was fitted with a mechanical movement, while the modern examples featured an automatic chronometer movement, the caliber 2200 and are depth rated to 50m. The present example is in New Old Stock condition, having never been worn.
