    Vintage Omega pocket watch

    Hi all!

    This is my first post here!


    I've had a bit of a look around, and I think that this forum is great for enthusiasts to get together.


    One thing that got me scouting around the internet was the recent purchase of a vintage Omega pocket watch.


    I bought it from an antique shop, and I was given no information on it.


    I was wondering if someone here could please help me identify it!


    I will post pictures.

    Thanks heaps!

    Looks ok to me, but that regulator needs to be put right. It should not be off the scales like that, and if you are a novice thats the hand indicator on the movement S and F

    Thanks joeuk. I have been keeping an eye on it for the past couple of hours and have adjusted it for now... Although I'll keep an eye on it over the next couple of days.

    I only just getting into collecting watches, and also trying out a bit of horology as a hobby. I find mechanical movements really fascinating. I won't be tampering with this one just yet!

    Just buy some of the cheaper Pocket watches if you want to practice the skill and buy some books.
