    OMEGA Longuevue Pocket Watch, railroad?

    I bought this Omega pocket watch and I want to learn more about it. It has an interesting dial that says "Omega Longuevue" is this a railroad pocket watch? And do you know the age of it?

    Movement Serial Number: 6165246

    Thanks for your help :)

    It has nothing to do with railroad watches. Too low grade of the movement. The movement serial is for 1923, more or less. However, the case serial appears to be past the 7 million mark, and that's 1929 or thereabouts. So, by extension, the whole thing was put together circa 1929/1930.

    The Omega logo on the dial is a decal (can't be printed, not on an enamel dial). That said, someone added it much later. The font is not correct for 1929/1930, neither is the logo, and no Omega would have the script or the logo done in such a perfunctory way.
