Antique Omega pocket watch, c1917
Secure Payments By
The watch has a stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is fully signed with the Omega name and it is all protected by an inner dust cover which is signed with the Omega name together with images of various exhibition medals. The watch measures 48mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is 800 silver with rose gold wash detail, this style of case is known as galonne and it was popular in the early 1900s. There is rubbing to the rose gold detail which is quite normal in watches of this design. There are Continental hallmarks inside the two case backs. Overall the case is in good condition, just a few little “dings” but nothing too detrimental. The acrylic lens is in good condition. The signed dial has a hairline crack running up from the centre but it is very faint and tricky to see with the naked eye. There are a couple more short hairlines underneath the bezel so hidden. Lovely ornate hands typical of a galonne style pocket watch, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. The watch comes in a new presentation box.
