    I've been offered a circa 1954 354 movement, dial, original marked crystal and crown from a jeweler friend of mine.
    No case. Dial looks interesting and overall seems original.
    I don't do my own work, so what could something like this be worth?
    If it's feasible I wouldn't mind investing in a case and have it put together. I'm a hobbyist and not a flipper. I've got a couple other omegas and just enjoy them. My friend is just looking for a fair value and I want to be even handed all around seeing that he looks for these for me. 21701.jpeg 21702.jpeg 21703.jpeg 21704.jpeg 21705.jpeg 21706.jpeg 21709.jpeg 21710.jpeg 21712.jpeg
    Besides I believe in preserving originality.

    If you believe in preserving originality then I don't see how this fits with placing the movement into another case when you don't even know what the correct reference is. Best to view this movement as a source of spare parts for repair. You can check on eBAY to see how much these movements sell for.

    I may be confusing things here, but isn't that six-sided crown usually seen on fake Omegas? Also, that dial (especially the logo) looks off somehow. I don't recall seeing those numerals on an Omega before ::confused2::

    Absolutely not.

    It is a rare version used on the 1956 Seamaster XVI.

    If it's the real deal, is probably worth more than the dial and movement to the right person.

    P.S. - Here is one listed currently listed on eBay. Plating is flaking off, and still, look at the asking price:

    It's also found on some Tresors, which is where I suspect the movement came from.

    I think these the original.
