    Mikrolisk would suggest perhaps Marchand-Monnier for Elem, which would tie in with the likely date of the watch. Nicely finished movement though.

    Among results for Wolf was Aureole, registered to the very same Ph. Wolf. Further search for Aureole shows up an interesting link between Ph. Wolf, Aureole and Vertex.

    On the basis of the shape of the balance cock and the exact positioning of geartrain and screws, I suspect it may well be a bridge modification (or a precursor - mainspring click is of the older type) of this Adolf Michel movement:

    Re: PH Wolf

    Thank you all for your replies. I have so much to learn. I think, perhaps, that I need to narrow greatly, the scope of my collection. I currently have too many watches of different type. I fear I was too enthusiastic when I began collecting, a rookie mistake!

    Thanks again.

    Well, that's up to you. You call it "too many watches of different type", but one as well can call it diversification.

    Re: PH Wolf

    Point taken mkws. I do like them all. I tend towards the vintage, pre 80's era. That will likely become my focus, with a military sidebar in the same era. Here is a nice vintage Omega:

    Re: PH Wolf

    That's a beauty... Dates to circa 1929. The movement serial is for 1928- the 7 million mark would already be 1929, but since the case has the higher serial for 1929, then that's the year of manufacture. I wonder whether the hands are correct or not, I'd associate that type of them with watches from late 1930s (and all the way until mid-1959s), but since they appear to be the correct length, I think it's OK. Nice case- the tonneau(I think it's more of a tonneau than cushion- I might be wrong though) shape really matches up with the round dial. Find a nice strap, and it'll be a great piece to wear!

    Re: PH Wolf

    I do like this one. It is my oldest Omega. I have corrected the date in my files. I agree it looks more like a tonneau case. I wear this one. I understand it has a nice movement: 26.5 SOB. There is an old watch repair guy where I live. He serviced it a few years ago, and commented on the quality of the movement. He works on Omega's, and my first watch purchase was from him, his personal, all original including strap, Constellation pie-pan dial officially certified Chronometer, with flush-mounted winder at 4 O'Clock. It is a beauty, and I wear it often.
    What about the hands makes you think they may not be original?

    Tks!

    Re: PH Wolf

    The shape of them looks kind of odd with this dial. Something like "cathedral" style hands is what I would expect. And, as I've said, that type of hands was more common much later. However, it's just my opinion, and as I've said, they are of correct length, so they're likely to be correct for this watch. Generally, when I have any doubts, even if they are really inconsiderable, I share them in order to be of help. I don't think these hands are anything to be concerned about- there is also almost no possibility of checking that in any sources anyway. It's not a Constellation or a Seamaster, where a dozen things can be wrong(and aren't always easy to notice).
