    i found what appears to be a nice omega watch

    hi all,
    here we go.
    i live here in minnesota and we have had allready a lot of snow.
    last sunday 12-26-10 early in the morning i headed up to the grocery store cart in tow.
    i had to walk on the shoulder of the street as the sidewalks where still a mess.
    i was in what you call the parking lane of the street watching my step as there was still
    some compacted snow and ice there.
    then there it was a watch laying face down.the pin holding the strap at the twelve had
    gave way from being run over i suppose.so the whole outer part of the watch was
    face down on the pavement surounded by about a half inch of snow.
    having had about 20 inchs of snow during the previous week or so i was amazed.
    i could hear the snowplows all night edging the parking lane to get it down.
    i thought theres a smushed watch.i even was'nt going to pick it up.
    but in the morning sun it looked good,maybe the band is salvageable.
    and what is the impression on the back case?
    well i picked it up,brushed off the crytal.it was still running?
    ok i put it in my pocket.
    after a weeks research on the internet this is what i think i have.
    note:i have posted on craigs list lost and found.the site recpmmended here is not user friendly.

    i could find only two watchs that are exactly what i found.
    both sold by jewelers as being previously worn 2100 usd range.
    omega seamaster automatic 120M,36mm,sweep second and date,
    champagne stick dial,(with waves)1120 movement but i havent removed the back
    to make sure.seamonster logo in waves omega mark under monster.
    18k and stainless case and strap.(strap 1801/823)
    i have contacted omega with these details +serial number.
    this should take while i suppose.

    now for the real question.i cant find anything concerning my legal obligations here in
    minnesota.i would like to return it to the owner,but if none claims it i would
    definitly like to keep it.

    just trying to do due diligence.
    any advice would be apreciated.

    regards,

    mike

    I guess you would ask the local police what is the correct thing to do?
    Found ads are usually free in newspapers I believe.
    Good eye.
    You'll either make someone happy you found their watch, or you'll end up with a nice watch.
    Win/win I guess?

    great to see you around tragic, and great advice to the op.
    i will just add that the op should find a way to vet the potential people contacting you to ensure that the watch gets back to its proper home. swatch may even be able to tell you the name and location of the store where it was originally purchased.
    good luck, and welcome to wus.
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...

    I'm guessing you didn't find that down on Lake Street, huh?

    I would post signs near where you found it. Mention that you found a watch. Don't mention specifics. When someone contacts you to claim it, ask for specifics, and you can be sure it gets back to the actual owner. I know I would like to have a watch I lost back.
