    Hello all

    New to this forum - thanks for having me.

    I have this 1947 omega watch; however, the unit doesn't work. It winds but does not tick. I took it to an omega botique and they estimated a very very hefty amount to send it to Switzerland for repairs and general reconditioning.

    This is my only omega and I've never had to refurb a watch before. That said, it's a priceless piece to me so I'd like to get it working and done right.

    I'm in the LA area, any suggestions about who to take it to to ensure its in good hands and fixed appropriately with genuine omega parts without having to lose a paycheck over it?

    Photos attached.

    Thank you all in advance for your help.

    Nate

    @Archer - North of the border but he'll take care of the watch.

    Looks like a gold filled 2486 jumbo to me

    Hi Nate

    What is the story with the Persian dial? How did you come by the watch?
