    Look what I found in a drawer!

    Itīs an Omega, owned by my great-grandfather, or his father again. Or it SAYS itīs an Omega. What do you think? I havenīt opened it yet, and I have no idea how, so thatīs just gonna have to wait.

    Was this kind of decal normal, or did my ancestors have problems converting 12 hours to 24 hours? -I really hope not.

    The inner yellow circle looks added ?

    You should be able to open it by locating the wider area in the join between the caseback and case, insert a sturdy and sharp knife, and twist.
    Post a pic of the movement, it will be easy then to determine if it is an Omega, and the approx age.

    It looks to be in a very good condition. Hands match, but the seconds hand seems to touch the dial.
    Personally, I would try to remove the inner yellow circle.

    Yeah, I'm sure its added, it looks like a sticker of some kind. The watch IS nice, and it keeps good time so I'll take good care of it. The case doesent have a removable back, so access is through the front only a
    nd Im afraid of destroying it, so Ill have to wait until Im having it serviced. BTW, I noticed that it doesnt have the Omega symbol anywhere, is that a problem?

    Bezel is likely screw on, with the movement held in a hinged pull out inner.

    Best to leave to a watchmaker.

    Lovely old Omega.

    That looks like what is called a swing-out case. Unscrew the bezel to remove it, pull the winding crown out, and the movement should swing out.
