Omega Ranchero Tropical Dial Ref.2990 Tropical Radium Dial delivered to the Peruvian Airforce
The Omega FAP: A Tale of Rarity and Distinct Elegance
In the year 1958, a horological marvel emerged onto the scene – the Omega FAP. Debuting a year after the renowned trio, this timepiece became an integral part of the esteemed Seamaster family, thus bearing the emblem of water resistance. The Ranchero, a unique creation within the Omega FAP lineage, resonates with echoes of the early Rolex Explorer models. With Arabic numerals gracing the 12, 3, and 9 o'clock positions, and a singular marker adorning the 6 o'clock position, the Ranchero presents a fascinating contrast to Rolex's configuration – featuring a 12 o'clock marker and 6 o'clock numerals in Arabic script.
The significance of this stunning Omega timepiece is further elevated by its exclusive association with the Peruvian Air Force. It bears the signature of distinction at its caseback – the initials "FAP," denoting "Fuerza Aérea del Perú" or the Peruvian Air Force. This remarkable timepiece is a rare sighting, with only a handful making their presence known over the years.
The champagne-hued dial remains in remarkably good condition, gently acquiring a warm patina as the years have gracefully elapsed. Delivered to an officer of the Peruvian Air Force in 1961, this timepiece embodies a rich history and an esteemed lineage. It stands as a testament to craftsmanship and a symbol of dedication.
In the world of horology, the Omega FAP Reference 2990/1 stands as a true rarity – a timepiece that transcends the bounds of ordinary watches. The journey it undertook, from the skilled hands that crafted it to the officer who wore it, adds layers of significance that only time can impart. This watch is not merely a timekeeper; it's a relic of a bygone era, a connection to the legacy of aviation, and a bridge between past and present.
