    Best to stick with what you know

    After failing miserably in my quest for a nice dressy Polerouter, I decided to look for something I know a little more about. . .



    Ca. 1952 with a cal. 353 bumper. Interesting combination of markers, and I really like the faceted lugs. I'm sending it back to my repair guy as the date wheel is slightly misaligned. Is that a common issue with these models?

    Very nice. Classy. I really like the date window at the 6.

    Great looking old bumper, I like it.

    The number not centering correctly in the date window, I wouldn't say it's a common issue in Omegas but
    it does happen when a watch is over due a service or has been incorrectly lubricated causing the date ring to be sticky
    and the date ring notches don't center on the jumper spring correctly or the jumper spring is missing or broken. Your
    watchmaker should easily sort this out for you.
