    Confused Need Help Identifying This Omega(?) Pocket Watch.

    Hi, I recently got this pocket watch. It appears to be an Omega since the dial has the mark, but it is the movement that troubles me. The movement has no Omega (or Regina) engraved on it. I even suspect the Omega dial was being added onto a non-Omega movement.

    An Omega dial with blue steel hands; looks pretty normal here.


    Now the movement. Appears to be an early 1900 15 jewels movement. However, no manufacturer's mark.


    A tiny swiss mark at bottom right.


    The movement is about 37mm


    A Fahys Montauk case.



    Based on the above pictures, can anyone help me identify the manufacturer of the watch movement? Is it an Oemga movement? Should I remove the dial to see if there is any additional mark underneath?

    Also, what material is the case made of? It is gold filled for sure, but is it 10K or 14K? Is it possible to tell from the marking?

    If any additional picture is needed, I can take more.

    Yes - see bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Omega 19'''LOBNN

    Maybe not that exact one - someone will confirm or correct.

    Yes and I guess definetly for the american market. Mikrolisk date the movement 1902 until 1908 and I guess its orginal in the american case. They often sold pure movements to america because of the tax regulations and the american way to sell movements and cases separatet by the jeweller.

    Kind regards Silke
