    Hello all
    Can anybody help me to identify this old Omega, I know the case was new has the original is broken but dial is at original status, and technical services only cleaned the mechanism.
    I'm thinking this is from 1941 or near this date, how can I know the real date?
    Here is the photos of this war horse.
    Thank you

    Do such charts refer to serial numbers located on movements or casebacks? In my case the movement is No.9494598, but the caseback is No.10237352. Is that watch from late 1930s or from mid-1940s? Or was the movement made in late 1930s, but left on the shelf until mid-1940s, when the watch was completed?

    That confuses me more as my watch movement dates to 1947 but case 9834239 would have to be at least five years earlier.

    It may have escaped your attention, but during that period, production of watches was somewhat hindered by territorial disagreements and humanitarian issues. ;)

    Many watch companies were busy supplying the military, and at the end of that period, many things that got put aside were used in an effort to stimulate businesses.

    So to find a case and a movement from about that period where the numbers don't fall into place chronologically would not be unusual.

    The seller's asking price is crazy. ::screwloose:: Perhaps one too many zeros
