    Default Dating a Regina (Omega) Pocket Watch: Will the Omega SN Tables work??? (RE: D.Reed)

    I own a couple of Regina watches and am wondering if I can use Omega serial # tables to date them, or did they use a different series for the watches that were ultimately put under the Regina label?

    You can us the "regular" Omega serial number list as the Regina watches are mixed in with the others, but don't expect anything that can be considered accuracy.

    Omega documentation* shows that:
    1,000,000 = 1907-1910-1912
    2,000,000 = 1904 - 1916
    3,000,000 = 1906 - 1919
    4,000,000 = 1910 - 1919
    5,000,000 = 1916 - 1927
    6,000,000 = 1923 - 1927
    7,000,000 = 1920 - 1935

    * Omega memo:
    From: Departement: Controle Central de Fabrication
    Bienne la 16 Fevrier 1970
    Concerne Annees de fabrication

    Oh, please spare me any comments about what is published in "the book."

    Good luck,

    Kent,
    if my info is correct then is Patria a early name for Omega. (at least that is what I was told).

    Hold the phone!!!!
    Patria was imported by the Omega Watch Co. of New York in about 1910 to 1924. The firm was listed in 1920 as E. Matthey and also as Ed. Mathey-Grau and was based in Bienne. They advertised not only watches but also 8 day clocks.

    This I found at another site to which I am registered.I guess these are two different Omegas...(being that the one is in NY)

    Here is the watch just to close the loop!

    Thanks for the info Kent...and don't worry, no comments about 'the book'...

    Obviously Omega wasn't as careful in cataloguing their watches? Or is it simply a matter of availability of information from them?

    Darren:

    Although I haven't tried to analyze the data in depth, like Hamilton and, to some extent, Hampden and Seth Thomas, Omega may have pre-assigned huge blocks of serial numbers to different models or grades. This would account for overlapping series' of numbers, spanning a years.

    There don't seem to be any North American railroad watches in the 1,000,000 series or 4,000,000 series and there are only small groups of North American railroad watches in the 3,000,000 series or 5,000,000 series. The bulk of the North American railroad watches seem to be between 2,360,000 and 2,600,000.
