    Thank you all so much for the info. So it is a genuine Omega Movement? basically I have this watch, I know that the face and hands have been changed in the past, but I have had people saying that it is not a genuine movement and the case is not genuine. I know it is, as in the case back it has 'Omega, Swiss Made Fabrication Suisse
    Acier Inrouillable, 887952, and on the edge of inside the case has the number 952. I am just trying to work it all out, it has been a nightmare trying to find things out

    Genuine Omega case and movement from late 1920’s, but that face and those hands....:eek:

    The “952” was engraved on the mid-case to enable matching to the case back. It is the last three digits of the case serial number. There is also likely some Roman numerals engraved underneath the bezel for the same purpose.

    Hope this helps,

    Yes I know, the face and hands are a little 'Marmite', personally I don't mind them. I did try to find a genuine face and hands true to the model but had no luck and only shallow pockets. Your advice and help is brilliant and I really do appreciate it. Thank you
