    Allworthy bros pocket watch

    Hello chums, I picked this up yesterday, a nice pocket watch retailed by Allworthy bros, 15 high st Camden Town






    Just a nice, quiet, unassuming little watch, so what really attracted me to it, well,


    This lovely Labrador movement, it looks great quality to my eyes, screwed in chatons and the Reeds regulator just lifted it up from the norm for me.

    Oh, am I correct in thinking there’s a link between Labrador and Omega?

    Matt

    Thanks, I really like this one, the new chain is a slightly different shade of gold but it's something I can live with until I can find a better match.

    Beautiful watch Matt. I thought it looked rather Omega like when I saw it and it turns out the two are very much related.

    That is a very nice looking PW there Matt! That movement just keeps you staring at it for a while. Looks nice!

    Nice! The serial number is under dial, should date to about 1894-1900
    Labrador does not have a link with Omega, IT IS Omega :) It's what later became Omega, and these are very high quality pieces
    I have one ~126 years old, preparing a thread for it

    It’s funny you should say it looks rather Omega, I thought that even before I saw the movement.
    I don’t know quite what it is in the Louis Brandt/Omega designed watches but it’s definitely there if you’re used to looking at them.

    I picked up a project Omega pocket watch a few days ago. Not as nice as that though.
