Hello All, I've posted a few pics of 3 Omega pocket watches that I have collected over the last while:
1.The first came from a friend of my wife's, her father arrived in New Zealand during the Second World War from Trondheim, Norway. The lady gave it to me after hearing of my interest in pocket watches, it has an Art Deco type dial? Yes I need to get some case screws for it!
2, This one was a cheap online auction buy, it runs but needs work,
3, Also an online auction buy, it wasn't advertised as an Omega but I thought I could just make out their logo on the inside of the case,
I'd be interested if any members could offer any comments on the movements in these?
Take care, Karl.

Hi Karl, If you have some magnification you should find the calibre of these movements stamped under the balance wheel.

I like the chronograph in particular. A cal 19 CHRO I believe, albeit one of the lower grades.

Thank you Captain Scarlet and Roughbarked, horology is a fairly new hobby to me so your posts are always gratefully received. Take care, Karl.

Hi Karl,
The first two watches date from the 1930's, on the first one if you look under the balance wheel you will see the caliber number.
The chrono 19 CHRO is a caliber 39 the first draft was made in 1898, yours dates from the beginning of 1900-1902.

Here is mine which is older than yours and which dates from 1898-1899 it is recognizable by its balance bridge which is different, and on it is made of two different metals: steel for the chrono part and brass for the rest, the case is in silver.

Thank you GG for posting the Calibre 39 pictures and the photos of your earlier Omega Chronograph, its a very nice piece! Interesting too the Chrono part being steel and the rest of the movement brass, as I had never really taken that in. I now need to get my watches back out and take a closer look under the balance wheels for the Caliber number as both you and Captain Scarlet have suggested. There's certainly a wealth of good information in this forum, I should have come here earlier ;) Thanks again Guys, Karl.
