    Help identify vintage Omega

    Hello all!
    New member but longtime watch collector.
    Ive stumbled onto a vintage Omega but I dont know the modell or year and would like some help with that if possible. The movment is a 420 marked 15297699.
    The quality of the watch is much better than the quality of the photos :)

    The movement is from the early 50's. 1952 was the only instance I found it in. The Seamasters used this movement. I am not good enough yet to definitively say what what it is exactly it is hope it helps. Found it here.

    An Omega serial number in the 15,000,000 range is from 1956 or '57, and since it's from the lower portion of that range I'd say it's '56. It looks in good condition from what I can see in the pictures. Omega made quite a few watches that didn't have a series name (ie: Seamaster, Constellation) on them. Nice one.

    Thx guys!

    Im not that used to Omegas (this is my first) Im more a IWC and Rado guy (Vintage) but there was something that I liked about this watch even though it is a bit small for my taste.
