    Got this beauty home today. OMIKRON, Sub second, 21 Rubis

    Got this lovely watch on an auction. Omikron with 21 jewels and from what I understand after reading about it on the internet, it is made between 1950-1951.

    The patterns in the dial is also made to look like an airplane propheller in motion, but I don´t know if it´s made as an actual pilot watch.

    If anyone know more about this watch I would be more than glad to hear. :)

    The back of the case was not in any good condition but I knew that. Movement are fine though and working perfectly.

    Text on case: Montre Ancre, Fonte injecte, Fond Acier inoxydable, 917779, 4987. Movement only says 21 jewels, Swiss.

    Regards Josef

    Congratulations - nice watch! The movement is something by Unitas (e.g. Cal. 6310 series; calibre code may well be engraved under the balance wheel). No, it's not a real pilot's watch - those have black dials and heavily lumed indices and hands.
