    Help finding the caliber

    Hi,

    I bought this watch and can't find the caliber anywhere, the movement has no numbers on it, the serial is 5375916, so according to the tables on the web its a 1915-1926 watch. Its engraved with a mention to the prices omega won on the world Fair of Paris of 1900.

    I think it's just one of those movements that are called Omega 18''' or Omega 19''' or whatever. You need to measure.

    18''' or 19'''? In case you dont know about Lines or Lignes (French). One line is equal to the twelfth part of the French Inch, which is approximately 1/16th larger than a British or US Inch.

    Whatever, here is a table from Australia:

    Hi there,

    here my more detailled table:
    Ranfft Watches, Movement Sizes
    It includes the most common oddities. But consider that watch manufacturers had, and still have a disturbed relation to diimensions.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
