    Some pocket watches I got - 3 Hamilton and 1 Omega

    As some of you know, my collection is confined to vintage omega wristwatches. I do own a couple of vintage omega pocket watches but do not really focus on them. I acquired these 4 to help a friend out who had fallen on hard times. He had these four pocket watches that he inherited from relatives and asked if I could take them off his hands in exchange for some much needed cash. Needless to say, I was glad to help him out and in return got some interesting pieces. I really don't know much about these pieces so would also appreciate any interesting info about them.
