    Identify vintage Omega?

    Can you help me identify this vintage Omega? I don't have a lot of info on it. It's from a local watch repair shop. It's inexpensive, and keeping good time, with a signed Omega crown. It's a manual wind, and the back was apparently very difficult to remove.

    Anything you can tell me would be appreciated!

    The watch is identified by a reference number that you find engraved on the inside case-back.
    The movement serial number dates back more or less to the early 60s.

    Bummer. I didn’t ask for a photo of the case back, and he had a heck of a time getting it off apparently.

    1962.
    Most likely Geneve series.
    Good movement, one of the last ones evolved from 30T2 SC.

    Refinished dial. Some care, some don't. Hands look silver, so thats incorrect. Signed crown, but doesn't appear to be the right size for the case.

    Replacement crown could be found, but parts supplier would need movement caliber and case reference number to match (will also need new winding stem with crown).

    Movement in fair condition. Not badly aged, but won't win any beauty contests either.

    If cheap enough. Buy it, but as price not mentioned. Hard to say if your cheap is actual cheap
