    Nice Omega pocket watch find.

    Picked this up this week.. cleaned up really nice but needs a crystal. The glass one that was on it was broken, I put a plastic one on for the picture but it won't stay in place.

    Anyway it turns out to have a cool Omega swing-out case.

    serial number

    Here is a pic of the movement after I overhauled it.. I think this is 1916ish... 15 jewels. The movement is in great shape and keeps great time. I didn't bother trying to regulate it yet, but it is losing 5 seconds a day! Ron

    Very nice
    5m = 1916
    6m = 1923

    So yours probably around 1919??

    Thanks
