Gold Wrist Watch 1933-1958
First style of Omega's self-winding watch
How is this object or story important to you?
It was given to me by my father. The watch was a token for his 25 years of work at one of the first insurance company in Toronto Imperial Life.
What does it add to the story of Toronto?
It is important because it relates to the business history of Toronto in the late 19th to early 20th centuries. The company doesn't exist anymore as it was bought by Desjardins.
How did you acquire it?
It was given to me by my father.
How old do you think it is?
