    Dear @OMEGA 1961

    I think i'm the youngest member of the Omega forum but i believe i can identify that watch Sir !
    It's not only a Superduper Rare 9 ct Rose Gold Vintage Rectagular Omega but a black dial ,Roman numerals plus another subdial are just absolutely Out of This World !
    That watch was manufactured in the city of Birmingham somewhere around the time when Prime Minister of Britain Neville Chamberlain declared War on Germany on the 3rd Sept 1939 now that's 2 days after Nazi Germany's blitzkrieg invasion of Poland heralding the beginning of WW2.
    Sir , if the Luftwaffe pilots had bombed Birmingham in the Birmingham Blitz earlier than August 1940 , your watch would not even have existed at all so that's incredible WW2 significance !!!!!

    If you had shown me the inner side of the steel back casing then it would have been easier to identify the watch.
    It should read the words Dennison , Made in England & reference number etched inside the back casing. Here ,
    I'l show You How the Omega Watch should be when fully restored[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hi

    Great watch,,,, sorry I did not see it on the bay. Augh how much was it ? or better yet please send link to auction. If you change your mind I would be interested in buying it from you. I guess DIBBS.. never used that before. hahahaha

    I happen to love the t17, cool move , 60 hour power reserve ... longest in Omega history ... up until the late 90s i think...

    Good Hunting
