But in all this is a beautiful watch case. I have gently polished the case, and it is shining nicely, as only real silver can.THE WATCH MEASURES 4.8CMS (48mm) across/height. This lovely Omega pocket watch has a its stunningly beautiful original white dial. It is fully signed'OMEGA' at the top of the dial. It is in EXCELLENT original condition showing two small hairlines at 5 0'clock and one very smal one at 11 o'clock that I can see. There were a few edge chips but these have been touched in by my watchmaker (slightly visible at 1 and 2 o'clock) It has lovely black painted Arabic numerals contained within a a black painted'Railway' outer minute track.
The dial also has a subsidiary dial which is in good condition (small touch up to the centre). The crystal is glass and seems to be original.As such it shows some light marks across its entirety. The beautiful blued steel watch hands and are in EXCELLENT condition with light oxidisation.
THESE ARE STUNNING ORIGINAL HANDS AS THE ENDS ARE SHAPED INTO THE OMEGA SYMBOL! I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER OMEGA POCKET WATCH WITH THIS TYPE OF HANDS BEFORE.This is a beautiful SWISS made genuine frosted gilt JEWELLED LEVER movement. It is FULLY SIGNED by OMEGA in a beautiful typesetting.
The watch has been FULLY SERVICED by my watch maker. It is numbered (ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE DIAL) 3665684. This dates this exceptional OMEGA watch to between 1906 and 1910. The watch keeps good time as tested over a 24 hour period.
This pocket watch has been serviced by my watchmaker at considerable cost. It runs well and winds and sets smoothly. The GOLD crown silver and chain ring look original and are in excellent condition. Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well.
Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming. Vintage watches cannot keep time like their quartz cousins and will need altering on average between +-2 to +-5 mins per day. They are a little more destructible than modern watches. Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning.
Every couple of years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service. By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation. Please do not waste anyones time if you are not interested.
