We have seen a vast rise in the demand for Antique Pocket Watches here at LoveAntiques.com in recent months, which could be down to the popularity of recent period dramas such as Peaky Blinders and Downton Abbey or simply because they make for timeless gifts. Whatever the reason is for this surge in sales, we're sure you'll have your own reason for loving Antique Pocket Watches. Our Dealer of The Month has a deep-rooted love for Antique Pocket Watches that stems from a rather endearing childhood memory. Leslie Licht, the founder of Euro Antique Watches, recalls a fond memory from his childhood where he was sat holding a beautiful Silver IWC Schaffhausen Pocket Watch belonging to his Grandfather, and became transfixed watching the second hand travel steadily around the face of the watch. He had a very close bond with his Grandfather, and when he sadly passed away years later, Leslie inherited this Pocket Watch, so of course, the watch serves as a memory of his dear Grandfather. From then on, Leslie started collecting Pocket Watches and in 1985 this hobby became a business and he established Euro Antique Watches. He started trading at Antiques Fairs, meeting customers and making business contacts, which brought him much enjoyment and great satisfaction, especially when seeing the delight in his customers faces when they purchased one of his Pocket Watches. With times changing and on-line services growing, Leslie made the decision in more recent years to solely trade online, selling mostly Antique Pocket Watches and the occasional clock or pocket watch fob and chain. He takes pleasure in listing new items on LoveAntiques.com and when asked what he enjoys most about the products he sells, he advised us that he mostly enjoys the high-quality technical movements, and is fascinated by the craftsmanship that goes in to these 'true pieces of art' When it comes to customer service, Leslie says, "My motto is: The client is king! I always offer my best service, and as a result I have received a large amount of very positive feedback regarding both service and packaging over the years. Buying at Euro Antique Watches is guaranteed to be a great experience" So whether you're looking for a gift or simply wanting to add to your own collection, make sure you take a look at the superb array of stock on offer from Euro Antique Watches.

Description
Omega Steel Open-Face Pocket Watch Made in Switzerland - circa 1942 Worldwide Shipping!! An elegant mint steel open-face pocket watch, made by Omega in Switzerland, circa 1942. This keyless wind pocket watch has just come back from the watchmaker and is in mint condition, making it a fantastic collector’s item! Dial:- The white metal dial has distinctive black Arabic numerals with additional 24-hour hour markers around the outer edge. The dial has golden Breguet hands and a subsidiary seconds dial at the six. The dial is signed Omega in the upper centre together with its notorious logo. Movement:- The high-grade fifteen jewels anchor movement has a plain cock with a polished steel regulator and a lever escapement with a compensation balance wheel (calibre 43T1). It is signed Omega and numbered 9889311. The movement is currently functioning well, but due to its antique nature, we cannot guarantee precise accuracy. Case:- The watch lies in a steel open face case with a smooth finish. The inner case is signed Omega and numbered 1126. There are a couple of very small knocks on the case but this is understandable considering the age of the watch. Signed:- Omega – Swiss Made – circa 1942 Omega:- The watch making firm Omega was founded in 1848 by Louis Brandt in Le Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. In 1880, it moved to its current location in Bienne, Switzerland. At the beginning, the company was not referred to as Omega. The name was later christened in 1894, when a watch model, the “Omega” was launched. As one of the world’s better known watch companies, they have been the official timekeepers for the Olympic Games, since 1932 and have also been supplying American and Russian astronauts with their “moon watch” since 1965 and 1975 respectively. The firm has been a member of the Swatch Group since 1983. Are you looking to sell your pocket watch collection?
