    Please help identify Omega pocket watch

    Hello everybody,
    Please help identify Omega watch.

    On the dial there is only text "Anti-Magetique"
    Inside the back cover - serial number "P 3256160", sign "Omega", mark "0.935".
    Inside the movement cover - "P 3256160", "0.935".

    On the movement there is no serial number, only text "Omega" below the FA and SR.

    Can you suggest what is the year, and also the model (if there were models) of this watch?

    Also - is it normal that there is no "Omega" sign on the dial, and also there is no serial number on the movement, only on the covers?

    Best-guess,1890's-1910's...I would lean more towards 1905-10.looks like a chronograph with stopwatch function.

    ok, thank you!

    Yes, they have the stopwatch function.
    If you know - is this normal for that time that there is no name on the dial and also that movement doesn't show the serial.. I've read in the sticky thread that case numbers are useless..

    The "Chronos" Special on Omega has an almost identical watch (page 54). The differences are that it has a small (straight) "Omega" where yours has a (curved) "Antimagnetique" on the dial and that the arabic numerals on yours are substituted by roman numerals. Otherwise, dial and hands are the same. The caption reads "Famous Involvement of the first Omega Chronograph (Cal. 19''' CHRO HNB) from 1898: The Zurich Gordon Bennett Balloon Race held in 1909".

    Hope that helps,

    Hartmut Richter

    I have an Omega pocket watch with the exact same movement and similar case to yours.
    The dial is also very similar, but not identical and in this case it is marked Omega.
    I don't know if this was usual or not, I've seen a few watches like this and most dials were not marked
    Omega.
