    40s Omega Chronometre on the bay

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Vintag....m43663.l10137

    Something that does not surface every day?
    Does it look correct?
    Hope some forum member will get this piece

    Yep all looks correct except the crown which should have the logo and the dial slightly patined, otherwise very good condition and all original item

    I wouldn't necessarily assume that a mid '40s Omega would have had a signed crown.

    Yep. Signed crowns were only introduced to Omegas in 1947 (though there are '47 Omegas still featuring unsigned crowns, which happen to be no less correct).

    Oh, and for what it's worth, it stinks of a redial for a mile. The font is much later than the 1940s, the logo doesn't look period-correct either.

    The watch in the fixed link - the 30T2 RG chronometer - looks correct. The serials are for circa 1946-1947, which is consistent with the unsigned crown.
