This Omega timepiece bears no engravings on the case back - not even the usual engraving - due to the prohibition on importing gold during the time of the fascist dictatorship in Portugal (1933–1974).
The dictator Salazar forbade gold or golden objects from entering Portugal because the Portuguese state retained significant reserves of high-quality gold (18 karat, 0.750). This meant that prestigious watch manufacturers, including Omega, would send the watch mechanisms, while the cases were manufactured in Portugal.
