    Help dating/validating 40s Omega.

    Hello.

    I would be very grateful for any information on the vintage and originality of this watch:

    This is what I have been told:

    Solid 14ct gold.
    Blued steel hands, ivory face.
    32mm wide case.
    Rounded back with reference number 2038371.
    As you can see the movement is numbered 9972457.

    It is my understanding that the serial number of the movement does date it to the early 1940s.

    I know that it looks beautiful but I would be very grateful if anyone can give me any further information on its ofigins. I have two main questions: Is this an original watch in all it's components? Is the face, hands, case, movement combination true and original to to a watch from that era? Also, can anyone help identify exactly what type of movement it is?

    Thank you for your time.

    CF

    The dial is an obvious refinish. The hands don't look original either.

    The movement is 16 jewel 30T2SC nickel plated and with those hands is
    usualy asociated with military watches as issued to WW2 british pilots.

    The dial would look like this one originaly but I wouldn't expect to find this combination
    in a gold case.

    Both of these are pretty good assessments.

    Often these WWII era watches are redialed and/or frankens. Nice movement though.
