    Question VINTAGE ROMAN NUMERAL SUBDIAL OMEGA w/ SER # & MOV'T VISIBLE FOR ID OF YEAR/MODEL

    I'm hopeful that someone can identify the year and model of this (I'm on thin ice here) 1940's (?) stainless steel Omega watch. Serial # is 10230209 and movement # is 9652575. I'll be selling it and prefer to know now what I have before I learn later what I had.

    Thanks, Tom

    Moved to Vintage. Movement is definitely early 1940s.

    You would use the serial number on the movement to date it. My book has 9M-10M to be from 1939-1944. The movement is a 300 caliber.

    I think this one is the closest match in the Omega Vintage Database:

    Hope this helps,

    I'll note that the style (rectangular movement in a round case) was typical for mid to late 40's as Men's interest in small squarish "driving" watches began to wane, and watch companies needed to make use of existing manufacturing capacity to take advantage of the post war boom.

    The problem for manufacturers was that both, small rond watches (mainly in Europe) and slim rectangular watches (mainly in America) were fashionable in the 30s and 40s. No surprise that movements, using the space of both kinds of cases efficiently, were designed - rectangular with rests at round corners to fit cases with round mounting frame.

    If they are not original I thinkl they may be 'original' to the early re-dial that this Omega might be. I am not positive but think it might be reworked a long time ago and the hands-which go with the roman numerals -may have been original or replaced at that time.
