    I'm considering putting a bid in for this. It's not what I would consider to be a watch I particularly desire, but I have been on the lookout for a gold dress watch and bracelet for some time, and this looks pretty clean and tidy. Thing is I have no pictures of the movement and while I've tried to identify the model number using the Omega vintage webpages I haven't been able to see one similar. The owner says it's from 1974 and is asking £1350 although I'm fairly sure he will accept less. It's 9k gold.

    What do you think is the right price for this watch and can anyone please tell me the model number so I can do a little more research on recent sales?

    One other thing - the distance between the markers and the edge of the dial seams quite far. Is that right?

    Many thanks

    Is the bracelet soldered into place? Is the bracelet signed Omega?

    Not sure if it is soldered, but it is signed with the Omega logo

    Just noting that so you're aware. It seems like it would have had a strap originally with that lug style, most gold integrated bracelets wouldn't have the lugs, just soldered straight to the case. Of course nothing wrong with a bracelet, but if it's been soldered permanently to a case style that wouldn't have come that way, it might effect desirability down the road.
    Once you get an ID on the reference that should answer that question.

    Thank you. I assumed it was original and soldered. That makes it a lot less interesting to me if it’s wrong. Thank you.

    OK, I missed this other picture. Definitely looks soldered, and I don't know if the info that Tool 106 is required to open it helps to identify the model.

    The hallmark on the bracelet suggests it is local production, most likely UK but I can't quite make out the assay office stamp. Yes it does look soldered. It is worth melt value plus a hundred or two IMO. Not a particularly exciting model and there will be fitment issues as there will only be a very little give in the clasp.

    See above. I figured it out. I work about 400 yards from their old factory.

    Yes, I deleted after I saw your post. Thank you.

    Think I'm going to continue the search.
