Well, my brother and I found my Dad's old Omega Bumper Automatic, which he got in the early 50s. I still remember admiring that watch as a child. It always seemed to have kind of a magical, greenish hue to it for some reason. Now, after all these years, I took it in to a local and very reputable watch repairer and restorer to have it serviced. It still runs really well after all this time.
The bumper is a very early automatic movement. The weight or rotor did not rotate 180 degress. It had a spring bumper which engouraged a back and forth motion.
Hopefully, I can pick it up in a week or so. Some photos I took recently, except the one of the movement is a borrowed one from elsewhere on the internet:
In the early 50s there were a lot of Omegas that didn't have a specific model stated on the dial, like "Seamaster" etc. So I really don't know what model this is. Also, most of the info re: WR, antishock etc. is engraved on the caseback.
Can't wait to pick it up and select a strap or bracelet. I will also want to get hold of a proper Omega buckle if I get a strap.
