Here is a very interesting Split Seconds repeating chronograph 18sz pocket watch running well.
I don’t know how to set the time but the chrono works perfectly and also when you press the side squared up button you hear a few gongs!
The only markings is inside the back case and it says Omega and the 34…… number if you research Omega dates it shows 1906!!
Can the learned ones please help me on this one.
Thanks very much.

Hi dharam,

I'm afraid I can't say much about this, other than it isn't a split seconds chrono; there's only one chono hand and there's no 'rattrapante' mechanism to operate two separate hands. The hand setting should be via the crown, what does the button in the centre of it do?

Regards,

Graham

Thanks much sir.
I figured out it’s Lever Set,there is a lever on the side that you pull when I unscrewed the front face.Other than that I still wish to know more…
Also any idea/input on the maker/age?
The center button that you see above the crown is just part of the crown!The small button on the side manages the Chronograph function.

It may generate more answers under the Complicated watches forum.

I do not know if Omega case numbers always correspond to the movement serials. The lack of any country mark on the dial suggests it was made and exported before 1909; the sn (if it matches case) is after 1905.

Others have more knowledge to ID the movement source.

Just realized it’s a Quarter Repeater.Gongs for every 15 mins.
Waiting for more wisdom..
Thanks

It is a quarter repeater chronograph that has been recased in an Omega case. It was originally a hunter cased watch, which probably had the gold case melted down. Then somebody recased it in an open face Omega case.
