    Omega pocket, great caliber. Need help

    Hi everyone,

    I have this watch in my family, and would appreciate to know more about it.
    Someone told me it is a caliber 58, but I don't know anything else.
    Year of production, quantity produced, how rare today, etc...


    I have taken pics some months ago, today it's been serviced and is much cleaner, I'll post new pics soon.

    If anyone could give me any informations about my watch, I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks all,
    B.

    Thanks for posting. Omega does have serial number records but they aren't as detailed as American companies like Elgin or Hamilton. We can tell you that your watch was probably made around 1922. It's a nice movement, and 17J at a time when most Swiss movements were 15J.
    The case is American, gold filled.
    You can register and look at the Omega vintage watches database for possibly more info.

    Thank you Ray for your fast answer.

    Is the caliber a 58 ?
    I've checked the internet and haven't found any similar.

    If anyone got any other informations, you're welcome.

    And anyway, thank you very much.

    Ben

    The caliber is not 58. Omega identified movements by size & features at the time this movement was made. Your movement appears to be a 17''' (ligne) NN LX 17 jewel movement from, probably, as Ray says, around 1922. The serial number on your watch appears to be 5,894,937 which is consistent with that. This movement was first produced in 1917.
