    Three hand wound Omegas

    Hello, everyone. This time, I'd like some help with three Omega specimens equipped with variants of beloved caliber 30T2. My main concern are their dials. Do you notice any sign of redial on the pictures below?

    I have further doubts about my number three, besides its dial: its caseback exhibits a pattern I hadn't yet seen in any Omega watch. Engravings were made on the piece's outside face, including what seems to be the case's serial number. The movement's serial number puts the watch on the early forties; IIRC, this is consistent with Omega's practices by that time, when serial numbers were engraved on the caseback instead of a reference number, like in watches made from the fifties on (see this post). The thing is that these markings usually are made inside the caseback. So, the question is: is this case correct?

    And there is this abnormally clean dial, with no sign of patina, which it should display, given the piece's age. Omega's logo seems, nevertheless, pretty fine, consistent with font style applied in dials from that period. Could it be a redial, albeit a well-executed one?

    First one has something weird with the dual tone on the left side
    But that could be light and angles


    Second one looks ok

    The last one, mixed feelings :/

    Number one has an average condition but I don't recall about such dial maybe original
    Second one is OK but dial has patina
    Third one seems a bad redial because of the letter G and the letter A

    Re: Three hand wound Omegas

    Thank you, gentlemen. It was very helpful.

    Georges, I was able to find at least one specimen resembling the first one I showed you, on an eBay listing. It's a ref. 2603-4 piece, equipped with cal. 266. Same case and dial styles, with an applied Omega logo on the dial:
