    40s or 50s Omega - Need help IDing!

    Hello, I came across this omega and have not been able to find pictures of it online. I do not have access to the case so I am not sure of its reference number. I have attached a few photos. Sorry for the cell phone pictures.

    Thank you!

    I will give this a shot.

    Looks to me to be early to mid-50's. Probably a gold-filled ,or gold-capped case and probably a 35X cal. bumper auto movement.

    The dial looks very similar to a Seamaster I own from the same time period.

    Nice watch, but the second hand doesn't seem correct to me.

    Yes I have never seen a Omega with an arrow head second hand and the numbers 3 and 6 look odd as well.

    I didn't do a very good job of accurately portraying the green dial with the gold lettering/accents, but, here is a quick and dirty pick of the dial on my cal. 351 Seamaster...

    The numbers on your dial are definitely not the same as mine but I'm not sure that means anything.

    The watch is an Omega Automatic one (not Seamaster). The have very offen the Bumper cal. 33x (330, 331, 332, 333) - 30.10 RA....
    Automatic series had quit often a printed numbers on the dial. Regarding the second hand - you can find also blue ones in this serie.
    I hope I could help a little ...
