These are my first Pocket Watch purchases.. Both Omega, Both with a 38.5 L.T1 caliber movement. 1 dates to 1939 (I think) - case serial No. and 1 is military?
I am really dont know much about pocket watches, but recently bought both of these as i liked the look of them. But are they genuine?
The 1939 one shows signs of age and also needs some TLC. It runs well (a bit fast) when upright, but stops when lay down.. the Balance wheel seems loose... is it worth fixing??
The Military watch with stamped back just looks too clean. There was a healthy build up of dirt on the rim of the case back and crystal when removed. However, the dial shows minor wear as do the hands. The hands have signs of the lume turning brown, but its mostly green.. is this right??
The seller of this watch has guaranteed its genuine and said they had it checked out by their local jewellers.
And the military watch:
Any info/comments you have would be much appreciated... Slightly worried i paid more than i should have for these.........
