    Is this an OMEGA PW or...?

    Hello everybody

    I have this movement that came from a Biritish hallmarked generic Sterling silver case. Apart of SWISS MADE on the dial it carries no words at all. Can someone identify the movement?

    Thanx
    Tal

    Well, if it is an Omega, the s/n places it in the early 1900's... but I see none of the workmanship or finish I would expect on an Omega of this period.

    It looks to me like a generic Swiss movement. Have you looked through Dr. Ranfft's archives for a match?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Yes I did check the archive for Omega calibers and found nothing similar.
    But now that I think about it and about your reply, it appears this is probably not an Omega because the pattern of the top plate is different in the Omegas of this period. However I do believe it is not a normal ebauche because of the micro-adjustment which is quite an irregular thing. Thanx for your help!
