    Help identifying omega




    Anyone have any ideas what this watch is?

    What i know so far

    • has a fixoflex strap, im guessing not original
    • probably 1940s millitary
    • bluey hands


    Any information would be much appreciated, also the watch has probably sat for 30ish years and works ok but doesn't seem to hold charge great, would it benefit from a service? and what shops would be best for this, omega dealers? or a vintage watch dealer?

    Finally opinions on replacement straps? brown leather??

    Nice watch. It does look like the 6B/159, but without the numbers on the back it was either a civilian version or the back was changed at some point.

    The bracelet is not original and I would remove it as it can damage the lugs. Sounds to me like the watch will greatly benefit from a service.
