    Off Topic post Omega MARINE 1932 (considering if...)

    Just wanted to show.. Should I keep it in collection or exchange for something? My main cllection theme is original Breguet and 1800's...

    “Omega Marine”, the first diver’s watch by Omega from 1932. Patented double case with inner part isolated by outer glazed shell and back clasp lock.



    Case can be opened from the back side with unlocking the clasp:



    Patented double case, inner case part pulled out from the outer shell.



    Movement insert retrieved from the inner case. Note two bevelled glass crystals.



    Movement Omega 19.4.T1 all original, fitted with new factory balance staff, fully serviced.

    Wow german, thanks for showing.

    Rare and historic early waterproof watch. Should be a Caliber 19.4. Great to see this piece.

    Thanks again.

    Regards,

    Very interesting to see and know about this Omega that is only one year younger than me. I guess about 1940 Omega sold their first waterproof chronograph entirely made by Lemania. Here is Omega ad and my Lemania. It has original sharkskin strap and probably never got wet. Serial 14000. A first one? Anybody know age? artb

    Use to have this Depollier water proof watch with the first screw down crown sold it a few years ago. Do miss it you mite regret it like I do mine. And it will cost you more money due to the rarity of that one if you want to replace it down the road due to you want one back.




    I miss this one.

    Thank you friends, I will have to consider. It looks like Reverso and I love this harmonic shape.



    Has somebody tested these early watches for real waterproof properties? Does 30's "waterproof" means the same as nowdays "5 ATM" protection, or more/less?

    Don't do it, I'd never put that anywhere near water, it's a good example of a scarcely seen watch and it would be a shame to ruin it, if you really want to know if it's waterproof then have it pressure tested

    Actually it's interesting what originally were they mean as "waterproof" in advertising. Maybe there was some technical specifications for that Marine model?

    Of course vintage watch should be kept far away from moisture, don't worry 8)
