    Can anyone tell me anything on this old Omega?

    A friend of mine is visiting some family and sent me this picture and were wondering if I could tell him anything about it. I`m no expert, especially on pocket watches so I thought I`d ask the pro`s.
    This is the only pic I got.

    I can tell you it has Louis XVI hands, but that's about it without seeing the movement. Looks like a pre-WWII watch, maybe as early as the 20's.

    The red 12 was in style in the first couple of decades of the 1900's, but I've mostly seen it on early wristwatches (where it was thought to help orient the viewer).

    Probably watch made between 1900 and 1920,but pieces of the movement would help a lot.
